The Killing Storm By Kathryn Casey

About The Killing Storm

On a quiet afternoon in the park, four-year-old Joey Warner plays in the sandbox, when a stranger approaches looking for his puppy. While Joey’s mom, Crystal, talks on her cell phone, the stranger convinces the child to help search. By the time Crystal turns around, her son has disappeared. Yet her reaction is odd, not what one would expect from a distraught mother. Is Crystal somehow involved in her son’s abduction?

Meanwhile, on a ranch outside Houston, Texas Ranger Sarah Armstrong assesses a symbol left on the hide of a slaughtered longhorn, a figure that dates back to a forgotten era of sugarcane plantations and slavery. Soon other prizewinning bulls are butchered on the outskirts of the city, each bearing a similar drawing. The investigations converge at the same time a catastrophic hurricane looms in the Gulf. Finally, as dangerous winds and torrential rains pummel the city, Sarah is forced to risk her life to save Joey.

The Killing Storm 
By Kathryn Casey

My Review:
From the opening pages, as the four-year-old child plays near his mother in a city part, blissfully unaware of the unspeakable danger lurking near by, to the chilling climax amidst the violent forces of an advancing hurricane, the suspense is truly 'killing'.

Texas Ranger and profiler Sarah Armstrong is on the job, and she's a lady with deep desire and conviction. She must battle the unsettled situations in her personal life and the needs of her own daughter against the life or death reality of a small, terrorized boy.

And this is one case where weather does make a difference! Amazing Read!
