IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER by M. R. Sellars

THE SMALL TOWN OF HULIS, MISSOURI
HAS A KILLER CHRISTMAS SPIRIT…

… AND IT’S¬†HIDING A KILLER SECRET.

In 1975 the small town of Hulis was ground zero in a frantic search for 10 year-old Merrie Frances Callahan, as well as an intense manhunt for her abductor.

35 years later, it seems the FBI would like to pretend it never happened.

Special Agent Constance Mandalay didn’t get that memo…

IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER is based on the short teaser novella MERRIE AXEMAS: A Killer Holiday Tale, (see below) but it tells the whole story of ten-year-old Merrie Frances Callahan’s 1975 abduction, and the present day murders that are somehow intricately linked to that event.

I’ve been a Rowan Gant fan since I picked up my first copy of HARM NONE (I got it autographed, too – teehee), and I am so happy that SA¬†Constance Mandalay got her own story! (soon-to-be-series ūüôā¬†I¬†can’t wait¬†for Book 2:¬†INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE!!).¬†¬†¬†ITBM¬†is going to impact¬†the rest of the RGI Series for me. Constance¬†was already growing on me, but I like her character much more now. ¬†Getting¬†to go along with her on this investigation, and see how she handles¬†the (I’m quoting Ben here…)¬†“Twilight Zone” stuff¬†without Rowan being there is¬†eye-opening. ¬†I definitely see her a little differently, and have more respect for her. She has earned her place in The Ghoul Squad, haha! ¬†I would LOVE¬†to see both Constance and Ben shake off their traditional beliefs and… well… a girl can dream. ¬†¬†‚ô• Blessed Be!

SA Constance Mandalay is assigned what appears to be a 7-year-old cold case that echos the events of the 35-year-old child abduction. Unfortunately for all involved, the case heats up for a short time each year with a brutal murder that appears eerily staged, and occurs under impossible circumstances.

Undaunted, she faces the task with no backup, a mysteriously redacted case file, and the inevitable murder fast approaching.

Mandalay‚Äôs experience as the ‘handler’ for an FBI occult/paranormal expert (Rowan Gant) makes her the perfect choice for this investigation. However, even her brushes with the unexplained still cannot prepare her for the answer she was not supposed to discover‚Ķ
