Behold the Child by Harry Shannon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First appeared in the Cemetery Dance Anthology:
Author Harry Shannon tells the tale of Sam Kenzie, a LAPD cop haunted by a child killer case. He’s a good cop but a ‘cowboy’ too much in the media’s eye. It’s suggested he circulate his resume, maybe take early retirement. He returns to the desert town of his boyhood, Twin Forks, Nevada to take over as The Law and battle his demons.
Harry Shannon expertly draws the picture of a burned-out and haunted cop on a road to follow his destiny in this dark fiction.
