As children, we loved secrets. As adults, we like things to be transparent.

Spiral of Darkness resizedNot much happens in Placid Valley unless you count the secrets of its inhabitants. Grace Garnett is drawn to the sleepy mountain town in Colorado after her father’s sudden death and discovers too many secrets in the seemingly innocent little town.

Why was her father obsessed with building a three-story castle in back of his cabin?

Then there’s the Marlboro cowboy lookalike, Jake Donner—only the handsome rancher knows the location of his wife’s unmarked grave.

When Grace, a child psychologist, is asked to help with a troubled child, the young boy leads her to a cult that threatens not only the little boy’s safety but Grace’s life as well. Worst of all, her father’s accidental death is beginning to look like murder.

Spiral of Darkness is available at Amazon.
