E-book - The Coppersmith by Michael J. Scott (Only 69p!)
Michael J. Scott's latest offering is a psycho-thriller based in New York state called The Coppersmith. It follows the FBI's hunt for a religious zealot who is killing pastors across Upstate New York. His last book Jefferson's Road attracted 4 and 5 star reviews and, if the inside of The Coppersmith is as good as it's synopsis, then this one should follow the same pattern. It's definitely moved to the top of my to read list.
"He calls himself the Coppersmith…
A religious fanatic bent on murder, he begins systematically eliminating pastors in Upstate New York. From small towns to large cities he selects his victims, seemingly at random, and subjects them to a torturous death.
Janelle Becker is the agent with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit charged with solving the crimes. But even with the Bureau’s resources, she finds herself ill-prepared to unravel the Coppersmith’s message. Why do his methods keep changing? How can they know where he’ll strike next? And can she escape her own dark past before it’s too late?
As she and her fellow agents track down the clues of the Coppersmith, they find themselves following an ancient itinerary that hearkens back to the steps of the apostle Paul. It becomes a race against this faceless killer as they struggle to predict his movements and get ahead of his deadly message of judgment. Can they stop him in time?"
