Act of Evil
About the Book
Hal Bannatyne is a successful actor in town to shoot a big-budget film. Spotting an old flame, Mattie, he immediately becomes involved with her family. When Mattie’s father-in-law tries to protect his land from the hands of a fervent land developer, Bannatyne soon finds he is mixed up in the conflict. Thus the intrigue begins, with a crooked land-development scheme, where someone is willing to stop at nothing to get what is wanted. Things take a turn for the worse with an attempted murder. Soon, the lives of all are in danger.
With a cast of characters that is truly genuine, Bannatyne unravels seemingly innocuous events that all become intertwined and more than anyone bargained for. A death isn’t what it seems, no one is who they say they are, and life does not seem real at times. Truly, this read is an Act of Evil. Also available in hardcover.
