Overview

Gwen Marcey takes death in stride. Until she's faced with her own mortality.

Forensic artist Gwen Marcey is between jobs when she accepts temporary work in Pikeville, Kentucky--a small town facing big-city crime. But before Gwen can finish her first drawing of the serial rapist who is on the loose, the latest witness vanishes. Just like all the others.

Gwen suspects a connection between the rapist and the "accidental" deaths that are happening around town, but the local sheriff has little interest in her theories. When her digitally-obsessed teenage daughter joins her, Gwen turns her attention to a second assignment: going undercover in a serpent-handling church. She could get a handsome reward for uncovering illegal activity--a reward she desperately needs, as it seems her breast cancer has returned. But snakes aren't the only ones ready to kill. Can Gwen uncover the truth--and convince anyone to believe her--before she becomes a victim herself?

In a thrilling race against time, When Death Draws Near plunges us into cold-case murders, shady politics, and a den of venomous suspects.

In Parks’s (The Bones Will Speak) third Gwen Marcey Novel forensic sketch artist Marcey travels to Pikeville, Ky., for what is supposed to be a temporary assignment. While helping solve a serial rapist case, she is drawn into a second open case of seemingly accidental deaths. After receiving a chilling death threat and a growing number of odd questions from the investigating officers, Marcey becomes suspicious of everyone and decides she must rely solely on herself to figure out what is really happening in Pikeville. With no one to turn to, Marcey must rely on her faith and wits to maintain hope in such bleak circumstances. Making use of her artistic and forensic skills, she slowly homes in on a stranger living in the community as the prime suspect. And the deeper she digs, the more the evidence mounts connecting the two separate cases. With no time to waste, Marcey must use her investigative skills to solve the dangerously entwined cases before more victims are harmed. The compelling crimes, inscrutable community, and resilient heroine propel Parks’s latest thrill-packed installment in the chronicles of no-nonsense Gwen Marcey. (Aug.)
