“DeSario is a miracle worker. . . . [He] swings for the fences and knocks it clear out of the park.” Booklist In Joseph P. DeSario’s suspenseful novel, tabloid reporter Matt Teller’s discovery of a brutal crime leads to a world of murder, conspiracy, and the occult.
In the middle of an isolated road in the California desert, Teller comes across a horribly mutilated corpse lashed to a metal cot. But when Teller returns to the scene, the evidence is gone. Meanwhile in the remote highlands of Guatemala, ex-baseball great Bill Buchanan thinks he’s found salvation from his boozy bush-league life when he hears about an Indian kid with an amazing pitching arm. But when he arrives at the village, all that’s left of the kid is the arm. Soon Teller and Buchanan encounter bloody ritual and genocide, as they are entangled in a centuries-old prophecy with the power to destroy.
