Boston, MA, November 22, 2013, 1:45 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- International author, Wentworth M. Johnson is pleased to announce the release of his new gothic suspense novel, The Beast of St. John's Cove.
The legend says that St. Bedric slew the griffin and gave prosperity to all the Christian people of the area. It is written that keeping the faith and remembering the griffin will maintain wealth and happiness for all. But does it? In truth the legend becomes the excuse for wholesale slaughter, degradation and enslavement. By pure chance one man, who should have died, finds himself the only survivor of an inhuman massacre. An all-consuming evil has engulfed St John's Cove leaving only this one living human to solve the riddle.
Evan snatches the beautiful Rebecca from the very jaws of death and the two learn to love and trust each other. Pulling himself through all manner of adversity he is forced to save not only himself but also his attractive new bride. Discovering a black monk in the ghostly silence of the deserted village they tend his injuries but instead of thanks he demands the removal of the human heads from the avenue of death. The monk believes in their quest but nothing must interfere with the destruction of the evil force that holds the Cove in its grip. The monk has his own agenda and forces the good to face the evil.
The Beast of St. John's Cove is available in both print and ebook format.
Mr. Johnson is also the author of the Bill Reyner Mystery Adventure series, including titles such as Magnuscarter and The Mermaid.
