Flashes and Shadows: The Tale That Shattered Summerville

A Coming-of-Age Mystery for Young Adults and their families.

by Champlin Michaels

Who fired the shot that launched the investigation in Summerville?
Thirteen-year-old Cade Watters,  and his family and friends are being pursued, shot at, wounded. Why? Are the shots just warnings? Or are some people marked for death? Others in and out of the circle of friends and family are already dead. What is it that pursues them? From out of who’s past is the danger coming that threatens to engulf or destroy them all?
Who has been tainted, and who hasn’t?
This is a tale of exploitation, intrigue, murder, drugs, and a internationally sponsored secret society that creeps its way right into our own back yards.

This is a must-read book about one of the most dangerous practices that face not only the youth of the last century, but the youth of today!
