I’ve heard a lot of good things about Eric Wilson, but A SHRED OF TRUTH, is my first taste of his writing. Boy, can this guy cook!
Usually it takes a few pages to draw me in, but this book had me from the very first paragraph.
One thing is for sure. I’ll be coming back for seconds..., thirds..., well, you get it.
A SHRED OF TRUTH has earned my highest recommendation.
From the back cover:
“VIOLENCE HAS LONG BEEN MY WAY OF LIFE.
FOR YEARS, RAGE COURSED THROUGH MY VEINS LIKE A POISON...
LAST OCTOBER IT ALL BEGAN TO CHANGE.”
In The Best of Evil, Aramis Black uncovered family secrets and historical conspiracies, hoping that his own dark past had come to certain resolution. But now, in A Shred of Truth, he finds his brother unconscious and tied to a statue in downtown Nashville with the initials AX carved into his back.
A shadow from his former life has reappeared, casting threats of violence and retribution. And soon the attacker is swinging his blade of self-righteous judgment directly at Aramis, challenging him to "face his sins." Can Aramis finally break free from the guilt of his old ways, or will he succumb to the vengeance of an arrogant sociopath?
Eric Wilson is the author of Dark to Mortal Eyes, Expiration Date, and the first book in the Aramis Black series, The Best of Evil. He lives with his wife, Carolyn Rose, and their two daughters in Nashville, Tennessee. Visit him at wilsonwriter.com
Here’s what a few of my favorite authors had to say:
“The world through Aramis Black’s eyes is mysterious, rich, and brewing with surprise.” . -Brandilyn Collins, author of Coral Moon
“Eric Wilson can flat-out write!”–Creston Mapes, author of Nobody
“Now that I’ve had my second cup of coffee with my favorite bad-boy turned java-shop host, I’m hooked on Aramis Black. A Shred of Truth gives us a heaping spoonful of terrific writing, a double-dollop of historical intrigue, and a custom blend of danger, mystery, and family drama. Is there any question that Eric Wilson is one of the best suspense writers around? Not by me–I’m ordering another cup!” –Kathryn Mackel, author of Vanished
