Darkness Rising: The East Salem Trilogy Book Two

Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson. Thomas Nelson, $26.99 (320p) ISBN 978-1-5955-4943-3
In Wiehl and Nelson's heart-pounding second East Salem thriller (after 2011's Waking Hours), forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris and her partner (both professional and romantic), ex-football star Tommy Gunderson, continue to investigate the ritual murder of Julie Leonard, last seen alive at a party attended by students from St. Adrian's Academy, an exclusive boys' school in New York's Westchester County. Another death—of an Alzheimer's patient and pious historian, Abbie Gardener, somehow crushed by sucking asphyxiation one night in her room at the school—complicates their inquiry. Romantic jealousy flares when Dani draws on the expertise of her neuro-chemist ex-boyfriend, while a demonically possessed friend tricks Tommy's model ex-girlfriend into thinking it's time for a visit. Wiehl's world, in which humanity plays a central role in the eternal war between God and the devil, will appeal to readers who like their morality unambiguous and their heroes righteous.
