My Mailbox Monday offering this week, is another author request, released to me as a PDF file.
This time, I think that the genre and storyline, is going to take me out of my normal comfort zone of the straight mystery/suspense novel, into the realms of bizarre and dangerous religious cults, in the troubled country of Zimbabwe … a real challenge that I am looking forward to.
‘The Summoner’ a Dominic Grey novel … by… Layton Green
Synopsis provided by Amazon
A United States diplomat disappears in front of hundreds of onlookers while attending a religious ceremony in the bushveld of Zimbabwe.
Dominic Grey, Diplomatic Security special agent, product of a violent childhood and a worn passport, is assigned to investigate. Aiding the investigation is Professor Viktor Radek, religious phenomenologist and expert on cults, and Nya Mashumba, the local government liaison.
What Grey uncovers is a terrifying cult older than Western civilization, the harsh underbelly of a country in despair, a priest seemingly able to perform impossibilities, and the identity of the newest target.
The first work in a globe-hopping series whose protagonists investigate the world’s most bizarre and dangerous cults, The Summoner is a stylish, haunting novel of mystery and suspense that will linger long after the last page is turned. 95,000 words.
About The Author
Layton Green is a prolific traveller, having visited more than fifty countries and lived in several of them, although at the present time, he is settled with his family in Miami, Florida, USA.
During his travels, Layton has held down a number of diverse and varying jobs, although he is a qualified and once practicing attorney, having attended law school in New Orleans.
With his love of all things spiritual and supernatural, his deep interest of religion and cults, together with his passion for Japanese Jujitsu, it is quite easy to see where Layton found his inspiration for his character ‘Diminic Grey’ and the genre in which Dominic’s adventures will be set.
