We all possess secrets. We lock them away. We bury them into the deep recesses of our mind. We go about our day and pretend they aren't there.
That's exactly what Thomas Loggins was doing. Going about his days. The head pastor of a small church in a small town. A family man, with a loving wife and a wonderful daughter.
Until one day, that all changed. It began as a typical meeting with a new member of the congregation. But Thomas soon realized this was anything but typical. This man knew things. Things that nobody should know. And he was making impossible demands.
Thomas’s simple life in the quaint town of Black Rock crashes into life or death when the stranger utters, "I know your secrets, pastor, and it’s time to pay the price…"

No one is without sin. All of us have hurt others during our lifetime and most of us feel remorse for the hurt we’ve caused. Remorse isn’t enough if you’re unlucky enough to live in Black Rock. A strange man may call on you and tell you that it is time to pay. This man, Benjamin or Michael or whatever he calls himself today is in Black Rock to give you absolution,….at a price. You must make an impossible, unbelievable and deadly choice. You have a few days to ponder your choice. Pastor Thomas is given this choice and decides to must be a way to fight back. Take this scenario, add in a pack of mad dogs and you have Hell in Black Rock.
This book starts like a horrific scream and shudders all the way through to the end. Excellent storytelling and characterization with some foreshadowing that made me want to reach into the pages and warn one character in particular. Note to travelers: don’t turn off at Black Rock. Beware of dogs. Just keep,driving.
Thank you #netgalley and #BlackRoseWriting for the #BlackRock ARC.
This is my first book from this author and I definitely plan on reading more. This book had a creepy atmosphere and it kept me reading.

The horror novel is dark. It has rage and violence. There are surprises. In joyed this novel as I am a fan of horror. I was amazed by what happened and didn’t happen. It’s a story you might want to read during daylight. I will be checking out his other novels and future novels. This novel is a refreshing horror story.
