Francis Ackerman Jr. is one of America's most prolific serial killers. Having kept a low profile for the past year, he is ready to return to work – and he's more brutal, cunning, and dangerous than ever.

Scarred from their past battles, Special Agent Marcus Williams cannot shake Ackerman from his mind. But now Marcus must focus on catching the Anarchist, a new killer who drugs and kidnaps women before burning them alive.

Marcus knows the Anarchist will strike again soon. And Ackerman is still free. But worse than this is a mysterious figure, unknown to the authorities, who controls the actions of the Anarchist and many like him. He is the Prophet – and his plans are more terrible than even his own disciples can imagine.

With attacks coming from every side, Marcus faces a race against time to save the lives of a group of innocent people chosen as sacrifices in the Prophet's final dark ritual.

Review: The author had me hooked by the second chapter and I only put the book down and halfway through, when I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore! The second sitting had me finishing the book, as the second half is a steam roller of a ride! The author says that he" wanted to explore the world of doomsday cults and the abuse of power wielded by the charismatic leaders of such groups but also on how the sins of parents affect their children", and he takes those basic ideas and crafts one heck of a tale! This is actually the
second book in the Shepherd series, so I'm hoping that the cliff hanger of an ending, means a third book is in the works! Pick this one up if you want a roller coaster of a read!

About the Author:
When a fireman or a policeman would visit his school, most of his classmates’ heads would swim with aspirations of growing up and catching bad guys or saving someone from a blazing inferno. When these moments came for Ethan Cross, however, his dreams weren’t to someday be a cop or put out fires; he just wanted to write about it. His dream of telling stories on a grand scale came to fruition with the release of his first novel, the international bestseller, THE SHEPHERD.

Ethan Cross is the pen name of a thriller author living and writ- ing in Illinois with his wife, two daughters, and two Shih Tzus. In addition to the Shepherd series, he has published two novellas––The Cage and Callsign: Knight (with Jeremy Robinson). Check out his website for more info!

And lucky you BTHM readers, I won a lot to be able to offer the previous book, The Shepherd, away to of you! WOO HOO! (and stay tuned, as the review copy of The Prophet may be on next month's Top Shelf Giveaway!)
