Book Review: The Killing Storm by Kathryn Casey
Meanwhile, on a cattle 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 different but similar drawing. Before long, the investigations converge at the same time a catastrophic hurricane threatens. Someone very close to Sarah is brutally murdered, and the clock ticks, as the storm moves in. If Sarah doesn’t act quickly, the child will die.
I like books that explore the depraved mind and help us see our sinful nature in a unique way. I am fascinated by the reasons why evil people do what they do and how God uses others to restrain that evil and punish the wicked. Thank God he rescues us from ourselves!
I am grateful to Pump Up Your Book for sending this book to me for review. I am looking forward to reading more of Mrs. Casey's books!
I give The Killing Storm 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
