Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Tuscon, twenty years ago, a psychopath named Andrew Carlisle brought blood and terror into the home of Diana Ladd and her family. But Diana fought back, blinding and crippling her assailant. When Carlisle died in prison, Diana and her husband, ex-sheriff Brandon Walker, believed their long nightmare was finally over. They were wrong.

Their beloved adopted daughter Lani has vanished — a beautiful Native American teenager kissed by the bees and destined, according to Tohono O'othham legend, to become a woman of great spiritual power. A serial killer is dead, but his malevolence lives on in another — and now the fiend holds Lani's innocent life in his eager hands. Before he snuffs it out completely, he intends to make his young prisoner — and, more importantly, her parents — suffer a slow and agonizing torture. For only this will avenge his friend and mentor, his dark god, Andrew Carlisle. Kiss of the Bees is a dark and brilliant excursion into evil's domain that will haunt the memory as long as the most vivid dream...or lingering nightmare.

Synopsis:

From critically acclaimed master of suspense J. A. Jance, the New York Times bestselling author of Fire and Ice, comes a nerve-shattering tale of rage and retribution, and a nightmare even death cannot end.

Twenty years ago, a darkness rose up out of the blistering heat of the Arizona desert and descended upon the Walker family of Tucson.

A personified evil, a serial killer named Andrew Carlisle, brought blood and terror into the Walkers' world, nearly murdering Diana Ladd Walker and her young son, Davy. Now much has changed. The family has grown larger.

There's Lani, the beloved adopted daughter—a beautiful Native-American teenager "kissed by the bees" and destined, according to Tohono O'odham lore, to become a woman of great spiritual power. And now the psychopath Carlisle has died in prison, so Brandon and Diana Walker believe they and their loved ones are safe at last.

They are wrong.

The monster is dead, but his malevolence lives on . . . in another.
