"Wow! I absolutely loved this book. Even better than the first! The bestselling Devil in the Grass. [...]
Strong characters you’ll love to love or hate, different plot lines that really move along, fascinating combination of Native American, Spiritual and satanic beliefs. (I won’t give satan a capital letter). The ride to the ending and the final chapters were original, exciting and explosive." Maxine, Goodreads

Jackson Walker once again faces his demons in this haunting sequel to Devil in the Grass.
Now working as an investigative lawyer for Peter Robertson, Jack teams with Janie Callaghan to solve the disappearance of a sleazy client specializing in taboo pornography. Meanwhile, the evil head of the Church of Satan weaves an intricate web to lure Walker as the sacrificial lamb in an Everglades Black Mass ritual.
Devil in the Grass
When his pro football career fails, Jackson Walker returns to his home in southwest Florida to sort out his life. He lands an internship with Republican state senator James Hunter, whose Clean Water Bill puts him at odds with influential members of The Brotherhood of Set, a Satanic cult. They have deep roots in Florida, and are led by the sinister Henrietta LePley.
After Walker begins a relationship with a member of the Brotherhood, he is framed for the horrific killing of two elderly people. To clear his name, Jackson turns to his Seminole family to evade the police and a particularly nasty bunch of malevolent characters who specialize in the disposal of dead bodies. The Everglades provides an ancient and frightening setting for the unfolding action that will prove whether Jackson Walker will pull himself free from the dark evil that lurks there.
