MURDER AND HORROR IN THE HAUNTED JERSEY PINE BARRENS
MURDER AND HORROR IN THE HAUNTED JERSEY PINE BARRENS SEND A YOUNG SCHOLAR ON A DEADLY QUEST TO DISCOVER AN UGLY TRUTH.

Archaeology Professor Rebecca Glass is murdered hours before delivering a paper proving that a fire that killed eight Cloistered nuns in the nearly uninhabited New Jersey Pine Barrens was purposely set. But the proof — and the paper — are missing.
His university assigns Assistant Professor of English Dominic Rossi the task of locating the missing paper. Unbeknownst to him, its grisly revelations would be devastating to a network of powerful people who are determined to stop him — at all costs.

“Well plotted and deftly paced, A Darkness in the Pines blends mystery and suspense with a rich academic environment that keeps the reader fully involved throughout. Excellent fiction.”—John Vance, author of Awake the Southern Wind, (forthcoming), Echoes of November, Death by Mournful Numbers, and Convergences.

“Mr. Luce expertly explores greed, arrogance, and family dynamics — and pathologies — using exciting storytelling as his vehicle. A gem.”—Dr. Pat Pope, Clinical Psychologist.

What connection does the brutal murder of Rebecca Glass, an archaeologist from Mount St. Benedict University have with a fire decades ago that killed a dozen nuns in the remote New Jersey Pine Barrens? Dominic Rossi a young English professor at the university who shared an office with the dead woman is surprised when the college provost concerned about the reputation of the college asks him to investigate the murder. Rossi quickly learns no one is quite who or what they seem to be as he navigates a web of deceit and danger to find the answer. Before he finishes the investigation, he suddenly realizes the truth has put his own life in jeopardy. The characters are engaging, the dialogue flows and the action moves. Hank Luce has crafted a complex, well-written mystery with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing and turning the pages.—Preston Holtry, author of the Morgan Westphal mystery series.
