Recondito is a town full of mysteries and old legends. There was a killer who had left dozens of mutilated bodies everywhere after he killed them and cut their bodies up with his sword, and he has just been caught when the book begins. Agent Izzie Lafevre and Patrick Tevake have tracked down this sword carrying serial killer. The killer left these 2 – FBI Behavioral Analysis Investigators with his last words that haunted both agents even as they reunite 5 years later. “Firewalk” is the name of this thrilling book by Chris Roberson.
Izzie is called back to Recondito to help Patrick on a new case and she is reminded of those last words that brought her back to remembering her family’s ancestors who were mamboos, voodoo priestess and people who communicated with the dead and even protected the faithful from evil spirits. The killer had known Patrick’s Uncle told him of the evil that was located in dark places in Recondito.
Patrick is now on a vice squad that is working to investigate a new, dangerous street drug that he finds out is somehow connected to the serial killer he and Izzie had killed 5 years earlier. So, Patrick has requested Izzie’s help again. Izzie is very reluctant to bring up the past and come back to Recondito, but she does. This time around, Izzie sees Recondito in a new light. A lot more dangerous now.
This book is a supernatural thriller that will keep you afraid to turn the pages because it is so scary and you will be on the edge of your seat.

I don’t want to give the ending away because that defeats the purpose of you reading it, so here is just a little of what “Firewalk” has in store for its readers. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
