When the monster is murdered, who will work to bring the
killer to justice when faced with a wall of silent approval?
Wretched delivers the disturbing high paced realism
that John David Bethel is known for, pitting law enforcement and the FBI on the
side of justice, even for a dangerous chronic bully like Ken Plough. What unfolds is a story of investigation in an
Iowan town, fraught with obstacles that gradually reveals a daringly complex
tale that rivals true crime stories on serial killers, leaving you obsessed as
you try to figure out who is kidnapping the missing women. I highly recommend Wretched to anyone
who enjoys true crime. Based on true events! This is my kind of novel!
