Sandprints of Death - Out Now
Jim Young is banished by his family to a desolate winter beach to rebuild his smashed feet and legs. His left eye and racing career vanished as the prints in the sand are washed away by the tides.
Maud Tosh, a family friend, finds Jim on the beach as she is consigning the ashes of her abusive husband to the ocean. Together they discover the body of a young woman under the boardwalk stairs who was last seen in the hotel slapping a man no one can identify.
Matt Young’s football career was destroyed during a game that would have put the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl X. The brothers enjoyed an oyster harvest until Matt uncovers the garrotted corpse of an FBI agent.
Isaiah Young stops by for a visit before making his way to New York for his first major art exhibit. A maid is murdered while he plays the piano for all the hotel guests.
The wisest course for the Youngs is to leave the investigation of the deaths to the authorities, but Maud convinces Jim to seek answers to her questions.
Will those questions expose past and present secrets that are best left buried in the shifting sands?
Nash Black’s descriptions leap off the page to paint a stark picture of a barrier island’s winter landscape where a killer is bent on closing all escapes.
