Delightfully engaging and wickedly intense, The Gatherer by Jerry Bayne is an intelligent and riveting debut suspense thriller that proves to be a powerful dose of dramatic whodunit. Vastly original, the author takes the detective-novel formula to a new high and never lets up on the action. With language that is ambitious and characters that are unforgettable, the author sheds the layers of man's intense and primal need to survive at all costs and against all odds. Set in modern day Boston, a detective is forced to investigate a series of grisly murders that are ultimately tied to the death of his lover's colleague, a priest assigned to interpret a primeval scroll unearthed in Italy by the Catholic Church. The mysterious scroll's message is ominous. It reveals that a sinister and unholy entity has been unleashed to roam the earth, methodically killing its victims. The only two people who can stop this seemingly indestructible force just happen to be next on his list of prey.
