SHORTLISTED FOR THE WILLIAM FAULKNER AWARD

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold meets Invisible by James Patterson in a haunting, atmospheric contest between a female FBI agent and the monsters in the human soul.

When FBI agent Priya Conlin-Kumar tracks two different serial killers hunting in the same city, she begins to see visions of a demon king. After one killer falls, she hones in on the seemingly inhuman predator who continues slaughtering at whim.

The closer Priya gets, the more intense their battle becomes. Soon it touches all the law enforcement officers--female and male--assisting with the case. Inexplicable events make Priya and her lover, the county sheriff, wonder if gods and demons are walking through the city.

Immortal energies gather for a final event that will shake the mountain. Priya must access the dark, sensual power of the goddess Kali if she is to have any chance at defeating the demonic predator. And she must do so before more civilians and law officers become the latest victims.

Showcasing magical realism and the heartfelt sensibility of a strong female protagonist, Beloved blends the human darkness of Greg Iles (True Evil) and Mary Higgins Clark with the literary sensibilities of Yann Martel (Life of Pi) to interweave suspense, deep emotions, and stark prose.

Comparable titles: Fox and O’Hare series by Janet Evanovich, Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell, Quincy series by Lisa Gardner, Burn Factor by Kyle Mills, Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter.

Beloved was supported by fellowships and art residency programs from the Vermont Studio Center and Wildacres Arts & Humanities Center.
