A Season of Sons
Rob Tucker, author

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

A Season of Sons is a paranormal thriller of deception, illusion... and murder.

The year is 2012. While investigating the heinous death of a prominent evangelist, FBI agent, Leon Safullo is unable to identify the killer through traditional methods of forensic analysis. Simultaneously, Leon learns of the sudden disappearance of Paul Evans, CEO of a major corporation.

Leon is a pragmatic realist whose career is based on interpreting symptoms of aberrant human behavior. The killer contacts Leon with the purpose of challenging the validity of his investigation. Leon perceives the threatening direct communication as a masquerade using digital technology, but fears for the safety of his family.

With the help of an illusionary alter ego named Pearl, Antonio Guzman claims to be a macabre combination of man and spirit, who has infiltrated society as a normal human being. He uses advanced technology combined with microbiology, drugs, and hypnosis to invade his victims’ minds and manipulate their unconscious desires. Guzman is in search of “candidates” to possess and convert those who embody “the perfect light.”

Paul Evans is a preferred target for Guzman/Pearl. Once a considerate and responsible husband and father, he has fashioned his life according to how he believes others perceive him, which exposes him to the influence of corporate greed, destroys the life of his business partner, and damages his own family.

Guzman invades and breaks down Paul’s resistance to acknowledging that dark powers have created his success, and now they want Paul’s only son, Matt, in a Faustian exchange. Matt and his sister, Jenny, possess the resistant strain of “Perfect Light.” Struggling to reclaim shreds of his identity incrementally taken and possessed by Guzman, Paul and his son flee into a mountain wilderness.

In the midst of a violent winter storm in the remote Rocky Mountains, father and son fight for survival against the forces of darkness whose sole objective is to possess them and extinguish the light wherever and in whomever it may exist.

The unfolding evidence and trail of mayhem and murder force Leon to confront his disbelief in paranormal activity as something more than the imagination and projections of a psychopathic killer.

 

Reviews
At the start of Tucker’s arresting series launch, Rev. Lawrence Livingston, who has devoted himself to “encouraging and promoting the acceptance and value of all religions,” is murdered in a New York City church by Antonio Guzman, a Georgetown University graduate raised by Jesuit priests, who injects the cleric with a drug before slicing open his abdomen with a machete. Guzman then masturbates with Livingston’s blood and ejaculates over the altar Bible, leaving a DNA sample that contains a dark, third spiral helix. FBI agent Leon Safullo investigates the bizarre crime, which is made even odder by Guzman having somehow removed any traces of blood from the scene. The plot thickens after Guzman emails the media and claims he resides “in the dark spaces of the universe. By putting a biological life form to death, I cause the vibration of energy, atoms, and the soul is set free. Lawrence Livingston is now one of us.” Tucker keeps the pages turning. This paranormal serial killer thriller isn’t for the faint of heart, though Blake Crouch fans may be intrigued. (Self-published)
