A blonde woman is found on the side of the road. She's bleeding, bewildered, and holding a small child--a child she doesn't know.
A man, believing he is righteous in his quest, is killing women who share physical characteristics. Characteristics that are strikingly similar to the woman on the side of the road.

Passion becomes personal.
Coble explodes and extends her craft in this new stand-alone, providing us with a sideline education into geocaching, swans, twisted minds, and Greek and Scandinavian cuisine. Her research into these areas as well as various theological viewpoints create pinpoint detail that rivet.
And to my delight, Abomination brings back characters from Coble's Rock Harbor series I love.
It's all better with friends.
