Her passion for myth and magic leads a woman into the
heart of a murderous evil
On a remote stretch of
the rugged coast of Ireland, folklorist and illustrator
Keira Sullivan pursues the mysterious Irish legend of an
ancient Celtic stone angel. As she searches an isolated
ruin, she's certain she's discovered the mythic angel, but
before she can examine her find, she senses a malevolent
presence...Is someone in there with her? Then the ruin
collapses, trapping her.
Keira's uncle, a Boston
homicide detective, enlists the help of Simon Cahill to
find his missing niece. Simon, an expert with Fast Rescue,
a rapid response search-and-rescue organization, is trying
to keep a low profile after secretly assisting the take-
down of a major criminal network, but he rushes to
Ireland, pulling Keira out of the rubble just as she's
about to free herself.
Simon isn't interested in
myths or magic, nor is he surprised when Keira can't find
a trace of her stone angel. He doesn't believe it exists.
But the gruesome evidence of a startling act of violence
convinces him that whatever she found in the ruin, the
danger she faces is real.
When the violence
follows them to Boston [and escalates], Simon and Keira
realize that the long-forgotten story that has captivated
her has also aroused a killer...a calculating predator who
will certainly kill again.
evocative, THE ANGEL is a riveting novel of dangerous
myths, haunting secrets and the shattering truth concealed
within them. It is Carla Neggers at her best.
