One Last Prayer for the Rays

by Wes Markin


DCI Michael Yorke faces his most harrowing case yet.

When 12-year-old Paul disappears from school, Yorke’s only clue is a pool of animal blood. Fearing the worst, he turns toward the most obvious suspect, recently released local murderer, Thomas Ray.

But as the snow in Salisbury worsens, Ray’s mutilated body is discovered, and Yorke is left with no choice but to journey into the sinister heart of a demented family that has plagued the community for generations. Can he save the boy? Or will the evil he discovers changes him forever?

One Last Prayer for the Rays introducing DCI Michael Yorke.


Christie’s Review


This book literally starts off with a bang, and it doesn’t let up…not really even at the end. If you are like me, your head will still be spinning long after the last page is finished.

What starts out as a missing school boy turns into so many unexpected twists and turns! It all centers around a twisted, crazy family that illustrates what evil truly is and the dark secrets they are hiding.

DCI Yorke is a complicated character that appears to have many mysterious layers to him. I’m glad this is a series because I think there is a lot more to discover about him. There are characters that are pure evil and ones that are downright crazy! They add so much depth and really drive the story!

If you are looking for a crime thriller to keep you up at night, along with a twist you won’t see coming, then this is a book should not to be missed. Really looking forward to the next one in the series!
