Untreed Reads has released M.R. Gott’s novel, Where The Dead Fear To Tread, in an ebook edition for $4.99.
Description: A police officer and a serial killer search separately for a missing child while running a malevolent labyrinth populated by creatures they never knew existed.
Former prosecutor William Chandler, disgusted with his past inaction, spills the blood of those who victimize children to correct the ills he sees in the world. A self-admitted serial killer and uncomfortable with his actions, Chandler attends the funerals of those whose lives he has taken in an effort to retain a true understanding of the nature of violence.
The carnage left in his wake is investigated by Detective Kate Broadband, who becomes progressively more comfortable with the corpses left by Chandler. Envying the power she sees in him, she pursues Chandler as each search for Maria Verde, a missing eight-year-old girl.
As Chandler and Broadband draw closer to discovering what happened to Maria they are forced to confront The Devourer, an unnatural being trafficking in stolen children.
“When writing Where The Dead Fear to Tread I tried to create a novel where the repercussions of violence were as vital to the story’s progression as possible,” says Gott. “Even the most heinous and unforgivable characters have families and those who care for them. By doing this I hoped to better portray the emotional breakdown of my protagonist William Chandler.”
Where the Dead Fear to Tread is a tale of hard-boiled macabre, bridging numerous genres to reveal a story of horror, crime and revenge. It’s available from the Untreed Reads Store, Amazon and most major e-book retailers.
