Thriller


Gray
Justice is the fast-paced debut thriller from Alan McDermott. When a killer
walks free from court, the victim's father sees just two options: accept the
judge's decision; or take on the entire British justice system. Tom Gray
chooses the latter and his crusade attracts instant worldwide media coverage.
It was just what Tom was hoping for, but it brought him a lot more than he
bargained for.



Gray Justice is much more than a simple tale of revenge: it's a rollercoaster
ride with an ending you'll never forget!

WHEN TEENAGE GIRLS VANISH in what was once considered a safe, Louisiana bayou town, the lives of four desperate young locals take unexpected turns, begging the question: Do you every truly know those closest to you?

When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes from rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, best friend HALEY LANDRY's relationship with her boyfriend becomes increasingly strained. To make matters worse, her impressionable younger sister BECKY has begun idolizing an impetuous, seductive 15 year old who's encouraging her to do dangerous things.

Meanwhile, ERICA DUVALL, a reclusive 19-year-old aspiring writer, befriends Haley. Ten years earlier, Erica’s mother abandoned her, leaving her with the womanizing used car salesman father she loathes. She’s decided to write a novel based on Tiffany’s disappearance; a novel that she hopes will lead to a reunion with her estranged novelist mother.

RACHEL ANDERSON, a 36-year-old mother of two, is having trouble coming to terms with her husband, TOM’s, affair with the missing girl—a relationship that supposedly ended shortly before Tiffany’s disappearance. What’s more, she comes to the blood curdling realization that someone is watching her through the large back windows of her house.

A DISTURBED MAN also lives in the area. Ever since his mother’s murder four years earlier, he’s been raising his insolent teenage sister, ALLIE, who sleeps with truck drivers for money. He considers women to be dangerous—and his world revolves around his fear and hatred for them. He’s terrified of his sister, knowing she’s intent on pushing him over the edge

In a dark forest, there is a dark house with an even darker secret.

(Flash fiction is a story that would fit on two facing pages of a typical digest-sized literary magazine - a complete story in one thousand or fewer words. A tale between 300 - 1000 words. Flash Fiction is usually a story of a single act, sometimes the culmination of several unwritten events. They are very short, but they are still stories. The best ones sometimes have a very strong message.)

THERE IS A LEGEND OF THE SERPENT GOD...

All that remains of its victims is charred human ash--as if she'd been torched from within. What looks like a freak accident to others, Detective Eric Bannon and medical examiner Angelica Hunter have seen before, and they have chased the monster that has spawned in India from where mankind had first encountered its deadly force. They are now truly the only two human beings who have had experience with the Kundalini snake god of ancient India. While they had once thrwarted its deadly rampage, on one continent, they have leaned of its having been reborn in the belly of a cult follower in the sequel, FLESH WARS..

The creature too has learned of its enemy, mankind by the time of FLESH WARS as it was killed or so everyone thought, but the evil returns with a vendetta born of its wicked DNA in book two. Whereas before it only took the prey it needed to survive in its mad quest to conquer a world, it is by book two bent on spreading an epidemic to wipe out all mankind.

The heroic efforts of a cop and a doctor may be mankind's only hope against this monster that has the ability to combust men like tender kindling to suck in the elemental gases of victims, leaving only a few knuckel and ankle bones.

This is the prequel to FLESH WARS wherein the action returns to India where the belief in the creature has spawned a protective cult devoted to its life....
..
HE'S SAID TO FEED OFF THE CREMATED SOULS OF THE DEAD...

As the temperature rises, so does the chaos. Nationwide, preachers of doom are predicting Armageddon. But when Brannon and Hunter discover the scales of a serpent at the death scenes, the strange clue leads them to a conclusion far more frightening than the Rapture.

HIS POWER GROWS WITH EACH NEW FUNERAL PYRE...

A force beyond all human control has risen up to feed. Spawned from the darkest reaches of hell, it lives on death. Unleashed on earth, it is creating a new hell. But for what ungodly purpose?

HIS LEGEND IS SPREADING LIKE FIRE.

Imagine they set out to clone the Son of God... Imagine they succeed...

Excerpt...

“We haven’t had a chance to talk much about what it will be like to be the parents of such a…unique child.”
The bride pulled her eyes away from the groom and looked up at the priest. “I thought the Vinces wanted the baby raised in as normal an environment as possible.”
The priest smiled. “Yes, that is true, and for that reason you must never tell anyone who the child really is.”
The bride glanced at the groom and back at the priest. “They covered that when I was being interviewed, but I never really understood why.”

The priest stood, walked around his desk and sat on the corner. “Ok—a hypothetical situation—we go right to the media and tell them about the baby... or say, you tell your neighbors, parents, friends, that your little boy is the clone of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. First of all, they’re gonna’ think you’re crazy, or maybe they just might believe you. Imagine how they would then react to the child.

“Think of it this way,” the priest continued, rearranging himself on the corner of his desk, “there are roughly around—oh, let’s see—six and a half billion people in the world today. About a billion of those people are gonna’ believe your little boy is God’s own clone, and some of those folks can be pretty radical. There will be the crazy fringe bunch: those who will look upon the child as an abomination, or maybe a threat to their particular belief system. What I’m telling you now is not hypothetical. We know for a fact these people exist.”
“But, what about the baby?” the bride said. “How can we expect a little child to keep such a secret?”
“Easy, we don’t tell him.”
