GALLOWS ASCENDING continues the saga of tracker and psychic visionary Luke Stone in Book Two of the Stone Quest Series.
It is thirteen years after the confrontation with Luke's nemesis, black magician Armand Jacobi in Death Valley. Luke's wife Consuelo, whom he met during that confrontation, has died and Luke has once again escaped into exile-- this time his wanderings have taken him to the seaside village of New Camen, NH.
Into his solitude has dropped Dr. Bethany Rutledge. Accused of the murder of her eight year old daughter, stripped of her license to practice medicine, her marriage to politician Adrian Montzaire in tatters, Beth is haunted nightly by the chilling vision of a woman's brutal death by hanging.
Adding to the mix is the disappearance of a young boy-- his vanishing centered in the tiny hamlet of New Camen. Then, Mountzaire turns up dead-- in the sand at the edge of the sea-- right beside his slowly awakening wife.
Now Luke must not only find the lost boy but save his beloved from the same fate that haunts her restless terrifying dreams.
