“ … action-packed, relentlessly paced plot … much to like about Face of the Bell Witch … strong start to what could be an extraordinarily entertaining series.”
“ … a major cliffhanger … unique perspective of what life might be like if death weren’t the end of relationships.”
—Clarion Review (four stars)
“ … alternately tender and savage first installment of a paranormal series … prose is frequently clever … thick plot threads … brightened by local color but tinged with shocking violence.”
Deep within the bowels of a Tennessee cave, the vindictive spirit of the Bell Witch awaits the catalyst to unleash her vengeance again after a decade of dormancy …
Ten-year-old Abby Whitaker is troubled. Her devoted father, Brody, a gifted Clarksville medium, is aware that she is beginning to pick up on subtle signs presented by spirits of her late relatives. But who is the stranger loitering across from Abby’s school, seeking her attention and worrying her so? While Brody juggles Abby’s angsts along with the myriad demands of fatherhood and personal financial struggles, he fatefully crosses paths with two dangerous small-time hoodlums, leaving him to wonder if his unique ability is a blessing or a curse. As the slumbering Bell Witch is roused once more, Brody is propelled into a desperate life-or-death maelstrom where he is pitted against sinister forces that will stop at nothing to get what they want: the one he holds closest to his heart.
In this paranormal thriller, a gifted medium and his young daughter unwittingly become embroiled in a perilous clash with both criminal and supernatural worlds—awakening a vengeful spirit in the process.
