About this ebook

Book 2 of 3

It began with The Cove. Now the suspense continues with the second chilling thriller in the Devil's Cove Trilogy.

Devil's Cove used to be a safe place to live. Until a serial killer was caught hiding behind a familiar face.

As the Cornish community reels in shock, missing teen Cal Anderson has been implicated in the murders. Desperate for answers, his mother Carrie is determined to track him down. But so is someone else...

Crime writer Aaron Black has arrived in town. His career is in ruins and he's determined to save it by writing a bestseller about the killings. But he needs Cal, and he'll do anything to find him - even if it means endangering lives.

Because there’s more to the horrifying truth than anyone can imagine. And for Carrie and her family, the real nightmare is only just beginning.

Desperation Point is the second book in the Devil's Cove Trilogy. This dark and disturbing read is the continuation of Cal's story. A journalist wants to save his career by writing a true crime story about the happenings in the small village. There is death, danger, drama, suspense, and intrigue. I will be reading the third book in this gripping trilogy. I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

Carrie has been completely ruined after her horrendous experience at the hands of a murderous psychopath who has turned her son into a monster. Her son has vanished into the blue. Her apathy and drunkenness is destroying her family life. Aaron Black is a writer whose ambition is to write a bestseller about the murderous psychopath of Devil's Cove. He has seen Carrie's son and has an idea of where he might be hidden. In exchange for an interview for his book he has promised to lead her to her son. What will his quest entail? Is he risking life and limb for a pipe dream? The fast paced action and the suspense had me on the edge of my seat. Intriguing plot.

Brilliantly written (make sure nobody's watching) Wow! I'm at a loss of words. May I never find myself in a situation like this! I would not know what to do! Accurately described emotions and feelings and decisions to situations that could actually happen in real life. I know the main characters by now and I need to know how and if these horrors will end. This is a must read for anyone interested in human nature and spine chilling suspense!
