Summer with its oppressive heat and stifling humidity has yet to arrive in Dallas, Texas. Nevertheless, things are heating up for one promising couple and their young daughter; all of whom are highly visible in the public arena.
Liz Carstens and her daughter Cass are feeling lonely and neglected by Damon. They seem little more than footnotes to Damon's busy life in service to others as a local minister. But Liz will soon discover the real reasons for their deep feelings of unease. These hard realities will involve far more sinister elements of society than she can imagine.
When Liz's best friend, Didi, gently suggests to her that Damon may be having an affair, the idea hardly comes as a surprise to Liz. But as reality settles in, dictating there is indeed another woman in the picture; that "other woman" turns out to be anything but just any other woman.
The coppery smell of blood is in the air; permeating some of grimy back alleys and the underbelly of the city.
Thirst for Flame tells a troubling, behind-the-scenes story of a hidden, yet disturbingly real segment of today's contemporary society. Two Dallas detectives and a pair of elderly citizen helpers are among those who go along for a ride that often challenges our conventional, comforting perceptions of what the "real" world is.
This harrowing tale of mayhem and deceit takes the reader into the heart of the deepest pit of a dark, underground realm of satanic ceremonies and unconventional worship. From the audiobook's memorable beginning we find ourselves inexorably taken down an all-too-frightening road most often not taken.
