The Palm Reader by Christopher Bowron


Jackson Walker once again faces his demons in this haunting sequel to Devil in the Grass.

Now working as an investigative lawyer for Peter Robertson, Jack teams with Janie Callaghan to solve the disappearance of a sleazy client specializing in taboo pornography. Meanwhile the evil head of the Church of Satan weaves an intricate web to lure Walker as the sacrificial lamb in an Everglades Black Mass ritual.


Jackson is on the trail of a Russian ring of pornographers, thanks to a client. This client is just plain trash. He was arrested because of child pornography. This leads Jackson to the Russians. The whole time….strange things are happening. Jackson is blaming the Russians, but is it really? Could it have something to do with the Church of Satan?

I have not read the first book in this series, The Devil in the Grass. I will go back and pick it up. If it is half as good as this one…I gotta have it.

I loved the strange characters in this book. I think Lolita and Jackson’s grandad, Nathan, are my favorite. Nathan is an Indian shaman and Lolita is a palm/ tarot card reader. Plus, there is Jackson. He is one tough lawyer. He doesn’t always play by the rules. That is what I like about him!

There are places in this story that are disjointed, especially at the beginning. I think it is the way the author introduces all the players. It takes a few chapters to actually figure out what is going on. But when you do…WOW!

Sometimes you just need a little change of pace. Well! This one is definitely a change of pace! Let me tell you, this book is evil, hypnotic and downright scary! This is not a read for every one. But, if you need a fast paced thriller…GET THIS ONE!

I received this novel from Netgalley for a honest review.
