Season of Guilt

Private investigator Merrill “Hock” Hocken takes another swerve to the lane of deceit, schemes, and mystery as he tries to make something out from the Season of Guilt. In this story of hot days and no rain intertwined with an increasingly frustrating case of murder, one typical woman slowly transforms. From someone with a fresh sense of herself and her possibilities, she turns into a woman who dares to realize those possibilities. But will this do her good?

Following the Design of Darkness and Crystal Palace—where Hock impressed with his suave method of investigating—, Season of Guilt tells a fast-paced tale where drought, a case of murder, and the yearnings of the flesh interwoven.  In the end, each surprisingly concludes in the satisfaction of a shared denouement.
