Where The Dead Fear to Tread Synopsis
A police officer and a serial killer search separately for a missing child while running a malevolent labyrinth populated by creatures they never knew existed. Former prosecutor William Chandler, disgusted with his past inaction, spills the blood of those who victimize children to correct the wrongs he sees happening in the world. A self-admitted serial killer, who is uncomfortable with his own actions, Chandler attends the funerals of those he kills in an effort to retain a true understanding of the nature of violence.
The carnage left in his wake is investigated by Detective Kate Broadband, who becomes progressively and disturbingly more comfortable with the corpses left by Chandler. Envying the power she sees him wield, she pursues Chandler as the search for Maria Verde, a missing eight-year-old girl, commences. As Chandler and Broadband draw closer to discovering what happened to Maria, they are forced to confront "The Devourer", an unnatural being trafficking in stolen children.
Some thoughts quoted about the novel are shown below.
“The world of William Chandler starts out dark and grim and M.R. Gott is not afraid to make it darker and grimmer with every page.”
Dana Fredsti, Author of Plague Town
"Frantic, horrific, brutal, and without doubt the darkest thing I have read in years, maybe in my life."
Marc Nocerino of She Never Slept
"Well-thought out. The main character, like the writing, is a complex man who you’re not sure if you can classify as “good” or “bad”. The story takes him through a supernatural mystery that will leave you wanting more."
Nerds in Babeland
