"The screams emerged from the house like enraged thunder and were carried on a gentle, guiding breeze that securely deposited them in the robust cornfield where they, at once, became silent." Author Cassius Shuman's debut novel, The Dead Boy's Legacy is a dark, spellbinding tale that revolves around the legacy of a missing boy, the family who loves him, and the predator who abducted him. Shuman's intense, haunting and heartbreaking novel begins with the chilling abduction of young Tommy McCarthy from a desolate road in his quaint hometown. The loss shatters the lives of the boy's parents, who become embroiled in an arduous battle with their demons as they struggle to overcome their unfathomable grief. From research acquired while assisting Jeff Mudgett with the book "Bloodstains," about the author's great-great-grandfather, notorious serial killer Dr. H.H. Holmes, Shuman brings an educated perspective to the serial killer genre and explores the world of psychological trauma, using sobering prose while weaving the narrative through a factual historical landscape. The Dead Boy's Legacy is on one hand a thrilling and complex family saga that illuminates the dark side of human nature while exploring the strength of a family's love and on the other a compelling journey through hell that's filled with suspense, intrigue, hope, and miracles."-- Provided by publisher.
