This tale of Africa, where the writer is so obviously at home, isn’t the easiest society for a Westerner to feel comfortable in. You immediately feel like an interloper, making all kinds of judgments about situations that are foreign to you. Then the author magical takes command of your brain and leads you into that world with a firm guiding hand. Before you realize it you are bonded with Kenawari and he’s showing you a lifestyle you can never imagine in the twenty-first century. Seeing everything through him, it isn’t all that difficult to become immersed in the action. And there is a lot of action.
The plot is a clear brisk read, that is difficult to set aside. You won’t regret adding this to your list of must reads for twenty/eleven.

The Devil Came East, and landed in a perfect playground. The Devil Came East is avaliable at Amazon.com in Novel or Kindle--It is also offered at IFWG.com (my publisher).
Neil Harris, a psychiatrist, on a late night radio talk show is the first to realize Satan has appeared in New York City. Lonely women who call his show to chat are committing suicide at an unusually high rate. When Neil shares his suppositions with his friend, Detective Sergeant Joseph Farley, of the local police department, the hunt commences.
The early chapters are used to establish what the readers will be allowed to view, but law enforcement will only surmise. A serial killer is and has been performing throughout the city. Naturally the political disease that infects any human organization is propagated by the vast size of the groups involved here. The police brass can’t admit the truth and tarnish their image. Elected officials can’t allow the voters to realize how long this killer has operated in their midst.
Not only a mystery, but a personal drama, Joe Farley, forty-five, recently divorced with some heavy financial baggage, is a bit of an underachiever. He is hampered by the fact he is given minimal help to find the killer and must share authority with a much younger ‘man on the move’ sergeant. Joe naturally has a love interest, a belligerent child, and a fierce loyalty to Neil (considered a suspect) thrown into the mix of complications.
We chose 'The Goal Oriented Serial Killer' because; they possess an obsessive-compulsive mind-set, but are neither delusional nor insane. The crime scenes, along with the method used can differ, but the victim’s resemblance in some way will be the same. In this case they are small, shy, dark-haired girls—their ages between 18 and 26. None of them were born or grew up in the City and they live alone. There is a chapter that shows why our killer finds them despicable.
When our killer finds the perfect female, he makes a mistake and stays in one place too long. With the police rapidly closing in on him, the Devil decides to go west.
