|It’s one of the hottest summers on record and a storm is brewing over the small town of Wellman, Georgia. |
Still reeling from the horrific events of the previous October, all Sheriff Carl Price wants is to get back to a normal life. Unfortunately things aren’t working out. He’s got the Brennert County’s DA breathing down his neck for answers about what happened in Crawford’s Hollow. He’s been served with a lawsuit by the Blackbourne family. And just after he witnesses a child abduction, the one person who always puts his life into a tailspin shows up to add to the pressure.
Meanwhile, against his better judgment, Wade Griffin agrees to look for a teenage girl who’s gone missing. It’s not his kind of case, but he’s trying to establish his private investigations business and perhaps abandon his past as a mercenary. But Griffin’s luck isn’t any better than Price’s and he ends up crossing paths with the man behind most of the organized crime north of Atlanta.
Both lawmen have their plates full, but then they learn that there is something abroad in the night. Not the supernatural menace they dealt with before, but something even darker. Just what is the secret of the charismatic Reverend Lazarus Cotton and what is he hiding in his small mountain church?
Once again, Griffin and Price must call upon all their deadly skills just to stay alive and even in the middle of a pitched battle against things that shouldn’t exist they are reminded that sometimes the darkest evils reside within the human heart.
Congregations of the Dead is the hard hitting follow up to Blind Shadows, again mixing hard-boiled crime fiction with blood chilling horror.

The real cover art isn't available yet, but I rather like the piece I substituted.
reviews: "With 'Congregations Of The Dead' Mr. Moore and Mr. Rutledge deliver a story that is furiously paced, with enough action, fright, terrors and blood to satisfy any horror and/or crime fiction fan. Once you start this book you will not be able to put it down." --Peter Schwotzer--Famous Monsters of Filmland.
"Plenty of action sequences and surprises fill this volume that will get you so involved that you won’t let it go until you have finished it and start looking for the next volume in this blood soaked series that begs for another volume."--Barry Hunter--Baryon Online
And the review from Horror-World is available right here.
