This psychological thriller is set deep in the secret heart of Kentucky cave country. Blue Crystal exposes evil and chaos lurking just beneath the surface of a picture-perfect rural town. In a world ripped apart by sudden and random violence, one man will struggle to survive, to find rebirth and redemption in the rising waters of an underground hell.
With driving, urgent prose, cinematic vividness, menacing atmosphere, and lightning quick speed, Blue Crystal is an action-packed and action-powered novel of suspense. But the cave is also an internal landscape of psychic terror.
