Dr. Ellis Poe is shy, timid, and keeps to himself-not a hermit, but not much more than one. He thinks the life of a monk would be pretty good. A huge sin of omission that he cannot forgive himself for is about to revisit him in a very dangerous way.Detective Carmen Rainmondi, hard-nosed and unforgiving, is about to come face-to-face with the crime that changed the course of her life. In the midst of trying to stop a serial killer the detective encounters the reticent Dr. Poe, whom she didn’t know was a part of her past, and finds that he is the key to solving the worst case of her life.
Wounds is a great story, but not the feel good kind. Alton Gansky has put together a great murder mystery that has protagonists that are full of angst, remorse, hatred, and self-loathing. And while in the end the mystery is solved, the main characters, even though they have taken tiny steps to move past that which haunts them, they are not tidied up to be more perfect people. Some readers might not like the depth of crime scene detail given. I do not think it is terribly graphic, particularly if you compare it to television crime dramas. However, there are some you may wish to take this aspect into consideration when choosing to purchase this book.For more information about this book visit B&H Publishing Group and Alton Gansky's websites!
