The Canal: A Suspenseful Thriller
Owen Smith, author
When Bobby Parrish discovers severed body parts in the local canal, so begins a tangled web of events tethered to the darkest secrets of Lorendale—a town accustomed to delinquency, but unprepared for the truths to be pulled kicking and screaming into the light. The evidence points to only one suspect, a man whose questionable involvement in another suspicious death continues to haunt the community one decade later, yet whose exoneration and attempts to rebuild his life since have not spared him from persecution. In the middle of all of this are a newly promoted police chief, her erstwhile partner, and a county judge trying to drive a wedge to the rhythm of his own agenda, as the canal flows, concealing as much as revealing what lies beneath.
