The Killing Storm Summary


The Killing Storm by Kathryn Casey

On a quiet afternoon in the park, four-year-old Joey plays in the sandbox, when a stranger approaches looking for his puppy. While Joey's mom, Crystal, talks on her cell phone, the stranger convinces the child to help search. By the time Crystal turns around, her son has disappeared. Yet her reaction is odd, not what one would expect from a distraught mother. Is Crystal somehow involved in her son's abduction? Meanwhile, on a ranch outside Houston, Texas Ranger Sarah Armstrong assesses a symbol left on the hide of a slaughtered longhorn, a figure that dates back to a forgotten era of sugarcane plantations and slavery. Soon other prizewinning bulls are butchered on the outskirts of the city, each bearing a similar drawing. The investigations converge at the same time a catastrophic hurricane looms in the Gulf. Finally, as dangerous winds and torrential rains pummel the city, Sarah is forced to risk her life to save Joey.

I go into it with expectations and have them dashed and replaced with something else. Opening THE KILLING STORM I was expecting a fast paced book about a detective. What I got was so much more. I finished reading this book and felt tired. Casey did such a great job keeping the tension building it just wore me out! Damn, this is a great book." -- "Crimespree Magazine""" "This heart wrenching story will keep you engrossed until the last page and is a must read!"-- "Suspense Magazine"
