Ghost (The Justice Chronicles Book 1)


Must read 🏆

An edge-of-your-seat type of book with an intricate weaving of plot and colorful wording.

Thrilling doesn’t do ‘Ghost (The Justice Chronicles Book 1)’ justice. Author Michael Jack Webb dazzles readers with his winding interlacing of his words and plot. So, no plain word like ‘thrilling’ will work. Riveting, hair-raising, rousing and stirring seem to be catered more to describing this potential best seller. And it all starts when the first breath Webb gives to the pages.

“Kate Justice stared at the young woman lying on the hospital gurney in the Woody Creek Emergency Room shocked by what she saw. The most recent victim of the serial killer the local media had nicknamed the ‘Ghost in the Darkness killer’ looked familiar. But that was unlikely. Kate wasn’t from here. She’d arrived in the city two weeks ago, brought in by the local police to help investigate the ritual murders of what, as of three days ago, totaled seven young boys between the ages of six and nine.’

See what I mean? Edge of your seat type of stuff.

Kate Justice is the FBI’s youngest profiler, who has been brought in on a serial kill case – the catch is, the killer is alleged to have supernatural abilities. This case has Kate wide open as she works fast and furiously to put the pieces of the ‘puzzle’ together. It baffles her as she tries to produce an angle.

The clock is ticking quickly, and Kate is obsessed beyond professional responsibilities in preventing another gruesome killing -especially when Kate discovers some eye-opening secrets about her own background. There’s not a minute to waste.

Webb obviously is more than just a master storyteller – he’s a researcher. It’s all in the his style of writing.

“The once-attractive victim’s eyes were rolled back. And the once-white sheets covering the metal gurney were stained bright red. No doubt soaked by buckets of arterial blood. There were several pieces of medical equipment attached to the young woman’s broken and battered body, including an IV and an intubation tube. The doctor and nurse used the former to supply saline solution, painkillers, and multiple pints of blood in their desperate attempt to save the raven-haired woman’s life.”

The fact that Webb knows ‘his stuff’ makes ‘Ghost (The Justice Chronicles Book 1)’ a worthwhile read! Book clubs would benefit reading it. It might be a good book to read when you cozied up under a furry throw with a cup of hot chocolate nearby.
