Forests of the NightBook - 2005
Possessing an intuition that borders on psychic abilities, patrol woman Charlotte Monroe intercepts a threat by one of the FBI's most wanted men, intended for her husband, a situation that turns more deadly when her deeply troubled teenage daughter runs away with the outlaw to the Great Smoky Mountains. By the author of Off the Chart. Reprint.
With the signature mix of brooding atmosphere, unforgettable villains, and mile-a-second action that readers can expect from his Thorn series, James W. Hall takes readers on an electrifying journey of suspense in Forests of the Night...
Policewoman Charlotte Monroe has an ability that borders on psychic-to read people's faces and body language, sizing up their intentions and acting before they do. It's a real ability that the FBI is trying to teach to its agents. But Charlotte's a natural with God-given skills, and the Feds want her in the worst way, maybe even to the point of blackmail.
But Charlotte's gift fails to prepare her for the stranger who shows up on her doorstep with a chilling warning for her husband Parker, a mysterious note scrawled in Cherokee hieroglyphics: "You're next." The threat becomes more ominous as Charlotte and Parker discover the man is on the FBI Most Wanted list.
When Charlotte's deeply troubled teenage daughter runs away to join the charismatic outlaw, she follows the two of them into the spectral mists of the Great Smoky Mountains-and to the beating heart of a 150-year-old blood feud that will endanger everything she loves and challenge everything she believes.
