Someone out there is murdering the living… and desecrating the dead.

Ebook edition. Delivered by Bookfunnel, read on any device.

Detective Jamie Brooke is a woman in the depths of despair. Her career is on the ropes. Her daughter is dying — there are only hours left before the end, and decisions have to be made.

Museum curator Blake Daniel is a man on the edge of destruction. Cursed with the ability to “read” objects — to see where they’ve come from, and the bloody histories they experience — Blake splits his time between working as a researcher at the British Museum… and binge-drinking to forget his nightmare visions.

Together, these two broken souls are all that stand between London and a serial killer. A young woman has been murdered, her uterus and unborn child removed during a gala event at a college of surgeons, any of whom could have committed the crime. The only clue is a small ivory figure of a woman undergoing a Cesarean section, dating to the seventeenth century.

Body modification, grave robbery, Nazi eugenics, a laboratory that specializes in extreme genetic experiments. All come together to create a mystery unlike any Jamie has experienced, and a danger greater than any Blake has ever seen in his visions.

It will take all Jamie’s detective skills, and all Blake’s psychic abilities, to find the killer. To end the murders. To stop something that wants to destroy all that is good… and leave behind only DESECRATION.

Desecration is the first book in a thrilling new series by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J.F. Penn: a blend of crime, psychological thriller — and the supernatural. Click “buy now” and find out what’s behind the world you think you know…

Reviews

★★★★★

"Desecration is focused on a surgically precise murder, which is perfectly appropriate, because this story eviscerates its readers. It had me hunched over the screen in horror and sitting back in tears, within the first two chapters. By the end of the book I was a mess, but what a ride!
This is a meticulously researched and emotionally gripping story created by an author at the height of her powers."

"I was not sure what to expect from this book by its title but, was I floored when I started reading it!

Desecration deals with the dark aspects of human psyche and has the readers wondering about the mental and emotional make-up of such people ... Joanna has made the character of Jamie so down to earth and one in which the reader can believe."

"This book is not for the squeamish or faint of heart ... It freaked me out and I loved it! The heroine Jamie Brooks takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions ... I hope J.F. Penn keeps writing forever. Her books are a treat for readers."

"Desecration will have you begging for more books with Jamie and Blake ... An excellent read, not only for crime readers but also for those fascinated with death, the supernatural, and the macabre. There are body snatchings, secret societies, teratology [genetic monsters], body modification, psychic readings, and more."
