Detective Joe "Preach" Everson, a prison chaplain turned police officer, is coming home. After a decade tracking down killers in Atlanta, and with a reputation as one of the finest homicide detectives in the city, his career derailed when he suffered a mental breakdown during the investigation of a serial killer who was targeting children. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Detective Joe "Preach" Everson is home after years of being away working and suffering mental issues. Now he's back on the case in his small town of Greenville, North Carolina when a local bookshop owner is killed in the manner portrayed in a famous book. With the help of a young law student and his new partner, they search for the killer. This book was really good. It was intriguing, mysterious, and full of danger and drama. The characters are all very real with real problems and they are easy to relate to and to like. I really grew to like Preach as a character because of his damaged past and his present. This book was written very well and as a crime book, it had it all. It had the good guys, bad guys, and crime, with drugs and murder and danger around every corner. It was definitely an edge of your seat read. I thought I knew the murderer, but the truth is a shocker that I never saw coming. I have not read anything from this author before, but this book was very promising and I hope to read more in the future.
