The Golden Hag
Rod Johnston, author
When a U.S. Marshal attempts to rid a national park of dangerous animals, he finds himself despised and unwanted by an autonomous administration that has evolved from traditionally managing the park to operating as a sovereign commune, void of outside influence except by supernatural forces that impose themselves through mind, body and soul.
Reviews
Johnston effectively blends murder and the supernatural in his exciting fifth thriller featuring U.S. marshal Cain Rippinger (after 2015’s Buoy 13). Rippinger, “sort of an ad-hoc agent that handles various details for the park service,” is dispatched to kill about a dozen mountain goats near Washington State’s Mount Olympus that have become a nuisance, but that mundane assignment becomes anything but when it turns out that the pilot of the small plane transporting him is actually Vindikis, an angel he once saw and spoke to before. (“[Vindikis’s] presence correlated with unbelievable rescues that would otherwise have left me, and others, dead,” muses Rippinger.) When the plane returns to the airfield, Rippinger loses credibility when he’s told that no one saw anyone else in the aircraft with him. That unsettling opening is just the prologue to another bizarre case, in which Rippinger probes a murder in a hot spring on federal land near Olympic National Park and crosses paths with a cult and evil spirits. Johnston’s solid prose helps to sell the paranormal premise. (BookLife)

“This book is a real page-turner—another treat in the Rippinger Series. Lots of action, intrigue and mystery. The scene with angels fighting demons within a park was especially harrowing. Keep the lights on when you read this!”

Rob Neufeld, Weekly Book Feature Editor, Asheville Citizen Times

“…‘The Golden Hag’ is a product of our times: a Joe Friday-type commando operating in a Wonderland-like Apocalypse, plotted with a video game’s pace and the poetry of a CSI episode.”
