The deputy sheriff of a small town in Iowa discovers a string of torture victims in a farmhouse--all bearing signs of a Satanic sacrifice--in a case that slowly reveals the dirty secrets of his seemingly innocent town. A first novel.

Blackwell North Amer
Iowa highway patrolman and deputy sheriff Carl Houseman is comfortable with his night-shift routine of speeding tickets and slow crawls through Nation Country's two-stoplight towns. But Houseman is in for the time of his life when a quiet weekend evening turns into eleven sleepless days after a 911 call from a terrified woman hits his dispatcher's office.
Upon arrival at the crime scene - a deserted farmhouse that even Hitchcock wouldn't be able to duplicate - Houseman finds the woman gone and the owner slaughtered and mutilated. Down the lane, another farmhouse contains the bodies of four more victims, tortured before their deaths and all bearing the markings of a Satanic sacrifice. As the investigation gathers momentum, the dirty little secrets underneath the placid surface of the quaint Iowa community are revealed, and Houseman ends up fighting for his life against a force of unimaginable horror.
