The Cry Beyond the Door
by M.A. Koontz

Overview


After being kidnapped and almost killed by a psychopath, a normal life was all Darla Kelly hoped for. But when she stumbles across evidence that her recently murdered father had hired a PI – and had kept it from her – her life becomes anything but normal. As she delves deeper into her father's secret, bizarre things start happening to her that she can't explain, and she suspects someone is trying to prevent her from finding out what he was looking into. When she crosses paths with her old friend Detective Mike Shafer, new secrets emerge — and murders begin to multiply. A John Doe everyone seems to want dead pulls Dar deeper into danger. Answers await her, if she can stay alive long enough to find them.

Description


After being kidnapped and almost killed by a psychopath, a normal life was all Darla Kelly hoped for as the new co-owner of The Contented Canine with her life-long friend, LaVon. But when she stumbles across evidence that her recently murdered father had hired a PI —and had kept it from her — her life becomes anything but normal. As she delves deeper into her father's secret, bizarre things, beginning with a recurring dream, start happening to her that she can't explain, and she suspects someone is trying to prevent her from finding out what he was looking into. She begins to keep secrets of her own that complicate her already questionable relationship with Dr. Shawn O'Reilly. While visiting the local hospitals with her dog, Merlin, Dar crosses paths with her old friend Detective Mike Shafer. Soon new secrets emerge — and murders begin to multiply. A John Doe everyone seems to want dead pulls her deeper into danger. Her old friends, including those with the FBI, become involved once again. Answers await her, if she can stay alive long enough to find them. Are the crimes being committed the work of one individual or more?
