About My Novel Hell is Empty

Surviving evil takes courage. Fighting it requires persistence.

When an obsessed man kidnaps high school freshman Samantha Dobson as she walks along a deserted street, Detective Tony Pantera must find her - with virtually no clues to help him.

While Samantha must deal with a depth of evil she never knew existed, her family is disintegrating. Her mother tries to hold the family together, but her father buries himself in his work while her older brother and sister deal with the loss in their own destructive ways.

Meanwhile, Pantera, whose last kidnapping case ended with a dead girl and no suspects, does everything he can to find Samantha before her case goes cold--or worse.
