CLAW Emergence Book 2: Into Daylight
Caleb Cantrill still can’t find where he hid the bandit’s gold or his cavern of riches. The only thing it seems he can find is more and more of the monstrous blight he unleashed on the peaceful valley he now calls home. Adding to his troubles, his twenty-four-hour reprieve from the gang is up soon, and the bandits will be returning, looking for their gold, or his life is forfeit.
Kitty Welch is swept up in a corrupt scheme which may result in her arrest and deportation back to Scotland. Though she wants to flee, there is something keeping her in the valley, something very surprising that she thought she’d never have.
Creeping, crawling, slithering death now lurks around every corner of the small mountain town, threatening to devour the unwitting population. With the help of Doctor Brown and Sandy, Caleb hopes to eradicate the horrific creatures. But even if he is successful, unless he can recall the locations of his golden fortunes, he might just die anyway.
CLAW Emergence Book 1: From the Shadows
One man stumbles across a vast fortune but learns that retrieving it may cost him more than he’d ever expected…
When a bank job goes wrong, explosives expert Caleb Cantrill accidentally ends up with all the gold. His criminal associates, members of the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang, want nothing more than their gold returned and to see Caleb six feet under.
In a small valley in the rugged mountains of Western British Columbia, Caleb hides his ill-gotten gains, then finds a place in which to lay low, a mysterious cavern with something inside that makes his sacks of gold seem worthless. But there’s a problem inside this cavern, a problem that wants nothing more than to have him for dinner.
Fighting for his life, Caleb releases untold horrors from the past onto a small town nestled in the heart of the valley, a town already in the grips of a massive gold rush. When a powerful local businessman learns of Caleb’s amazing find in the cavern, he decides he wants it all for himself and won’t take no for an answer.
Thanks to a blow to the head, Caleb discovers he can’t remember the location of either of his fortunes. Now, he and his newfound friends must fend off the incoming bandits while trying to cleanse the valley of the monstrous blight he unleashed, which, if left unchecked, might eat every living thing in sight.
[This is the first book in a brand new THREE-BOOK prequel series to Katie Berry’s award-winning CLAW: A Canadian Thriller, which expands and enriches the previous adventures of Caleb Cantrill and Kitty Welch and takes them both to places they never expected.]
