Duration: 3 hours 25 minutes
A mind-blowing mystery that will have you on the edge of your seat until the shocking ending.
On a gorgeous morning in paradise, tourists find a dead body on the pristine white beach of St. Killian, an island in the Caribbean.
The victim was killed in a ritualistic murder. The dead man was castrated and branded. Burned into his skin is a strange word-"eros."
Investigative journalist Vivian Thomas-Bronson heads to the scene of the crime. She's got to cover the story alone. Her husband, Leo Bronson, has to do a mysterious favor for his father.
Leo is less than thrilled when he's asked to find the missing son of a billionaire. There's only one clue to go on-something known as "eros."
Could the missing scion be connected to the dead man on the beach? And what is the mystery behind "eros'?
Their investigation uncovers an ultra-secret cult whose members perform bizarre rituals.
When Leo goes undercover to get more information, he finds himself face to face with a demented killer. Can he escape with the truth? Or, will he fall prey to a psychotic villain who believes that murder is a sacrifice worth making?
THE PRODIGAL CAPTIVE is Book 1 in Rachel Woods' popular Palmchat Island Mystery series but can be read as a standalone.
