Finally, Zeke is here!
Zeke is a dark novel of obsession. Naive college student, Sue Cox, is
ill-prepared for thepersuasive
waysof an experienced man like Zeke.
She falls hard and fast for his stunning looks, sensual touch, and
psychological manipulation. Before summer's end, he convinces her to go on the
road with him.
Once Zeke has Sue isolated from friends and family, his behavior grows more
deviant and increasingly volatile.
Sue's parents refuse to believe Sue left willingly. They hire Will Falstaff,
small town private investigator, to find her. He intends to locate Sue and
confirm she has not been taken against her will. That's all. But the more he
learns about Zeke, the more he becomes convinced that his clients' daughter is
in real danger. Will he find her in time?
If you tried to recreate the road trip in Zeke, it would drive you crazy. We
used an atlas when writing Zeke, but changed the names of most locations and
all roads. In Zeke,
you will not only journey across a portion of the United States, you will also venture into the
mind of a madman.
