A sacred practice…
A rite of passage…
A ritual ceremony passed down from generation to generation.
One hundred million of the world’s women are currently affected by this brutal act.

“In her bestselling 1992 novel, Possessing the Secret of Joy, Alice Walker opened a painful door to the attention of the reading public…”

In my new controversial novel NOTHING SACRED, a psychological thriller set against the backdrop of contemporary Charleston, South Carolina… this vicious act comes home. 

Traumatized by the recent separation from his family, and ricocheting back after the untimely death of his partner, Detective Dan Hammer of the Charleston Police Department investigates the bizarre case surrounding a local teenage girl, found half-dead, stumbling along Old Towne Road after dark.

Dr. Sydia Garrison, fifth year surgical resident at The Medical University of South Carolina performs the emergency surgery that saves the young girl’s life. The case quickly turns sour when a second victim is discovered, tied-up in ritualized fashion and not nearly so lucky. The sleepy town of Charleston is about to be put on the map.

Harry Wright’s plan for an early retirement from Quantico, Virginia’s FBI Behavioral Science Unit falls on deaf ears as he undertakes one of his most challenging cases. After a life-long career of profiling serial killers, Harry is forced to leave his wife’s bedside, suffering life’s greatest killer; terminal cancer. The one murderer Harry can’t contain.

In Charleston, a task force is formed. “The Mutilator,” as dubbed by the press attracts national, frenzied attention when the dreaded news arrives: another girl is missing.

Together, Hammer and Wright piece together a scenario of horror, one that appears to be the work of a psychotic, sadistic killer. What emerges is the result of a deep-rooted psychological scar, buried dormant, cross continents and time, back thirty years ago to a small village outside Dakar, Africa, where a small girl and her mother were left abandoned to die. 

Is there nothing sacred?
