DIRE SALVATION, Neff's New Thriller

6/2/2012 10:46:00 AM

by Charles B. Neff


DIRE Salvation, Charles B. Neff fifth thriller takes his readers back to Washington State's Cascade mountains where murder, a dangerous new drug, almost forgotten family histories and ancient lore combine in a breakneck story.

 

SEATTLE - Dire Salvation (Bennett & Hastings Publishing, May 2012), Charles B. Neff's captivating fifth thriller, is the story of a complex murder investigation that propels local law enforcement officers to search for the source of a sophisticated new drug. Set in the Cascade Mountains of Central Washington state, the pace of Dire Salvation is swift, as accelerating action over five days builds suspense at every turn.
Calla Ogden's carefully organized life as a social worker begins to fall apart: a man is dead and her half-brother is a suspect. The ensuing investigation focuses on workers at a fish hatchery operated by a local Native American tribe, and soon draws in Mayor Phil Bianchi and Greg Takarchuk, a junior police officer. As Phil and Calla grow close, the expanding implications of the investigation bring them face to face with the cracks beneath the surface of a quiet mountain town and with old events tied to Calla's native heritage.
Complicated family dramas make for an unusual backdrop to fast-moving action that draws readers in from the start. In the end, native lore and modern science combine in a treacherous final confrontation that threatens to sweep away many lives, and with them, new-found love.
