The Keeper of Darkness


Two women are missing! 

Several years ago, four women disappeared in the same way, but Jake Peterson solved those cases and a man was convicted of their murders.  Now Jake has just returned to Granelle as the associate pastor for the small gospel church.  On the night that the senior pastor is hospitalized, Jake’s old boss, the captain of the local police department, asks him to return to his old job as a detective take over the case from his ex-partner/ex-fiancée, Meg Riley, since there are similarities to the solved cases. 

As Jake is torn with his desire to help the police force and his commitment to the church, he hears that Meg is following a strange theory tied to animal hairs at the crime scenes.  People are talking about her and the captain is questioning her ability to handle the case.  As Jake struggles to meet the needs of the church, a ten-year old boy in his congregation is reported missing by his parents.  As Jake finds himself drawn into the investigation, he realizes that Meg may be the latest victim.
