Descrizione del libro

2 gennaio 2014

It’s December 1949, and the holidays have descended upon a small, rural town. But not all is cheerful.

Sheriff Gordon Maxwell, emotionally broken, with an affinity for the drink, wakes up in the hospital—nose broken and jaw wired shut. Memory returns like a fog, as his deputy explains that the teenage boy he’d saved from an abusive father is in a coma down the hall.

And then he hears that two children have been abducted, which triggers flashbacks in Maxwell’s mind that resurface suppressed childhood horrors.

Maxwell’s investigation into the missing children digs up a secret society within the Catholic Church— the Fundamental Legionnaires of the Cristo, which has morphed to include nondenominational pedophiles and other sickos making a fortune from child trafficking.

When his deputy mysteriously disappears, Maxwell realizes he must face this evil underground, as well as his worsening visions, alone. The two worlds converge at a seminary, where he once studied, and where he must dig up something buried in the far reaches of his mind to finally find the answers he’d been looking for at the bottom of a bottle.

Fans of Dean Koontz, Joe R Landsdale, Andrew Vachss, and Stephen King will appreciate this exploration into the world’s hidden evils and the secrets of the human psyche.

Descrizione prodotto


Augustus G. Van Slyke devotes his time to promoting the belief that humans’ first, and most sacred, obligation is to protect our children.

Van Slyke is a member of PROTECT, a national, pro-child, anti-crime association, and of Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP). He is currently a hospice volunteer, has volunteered with Big Brothers and Big Sisters, is a former member of the US Twenty-Fifth Infantry Division during the Vietnam War, and is a lifetime member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart. He has over thirty years’ experience in the field of communications and has devoted years of research into child abuse and child trafficking.

Digging Up Bones is an extension of actual police reports, victims’ testimony, perpetrator testimony, and personal stories that have been told to me by perfect strangers for my first book, Angels Never Lie.

Van Slyke lives with his wife in Scottsdale, Arizona. They have three children.

If you like Andrew Vachss, Gerry Van Slyke is better. Though the plot has unspeakable crimes, but also brings the element of hope into the novel.

A strong but tortured alcoholic sheriff, a sexy nurse, a Lutheran minister who likes make-up and pink dresses, an angel, and an angel apprentice; these are just some of the wild cast of characters in Digging Up Bones. Set in 1949, this novel takes on new significance with the recent revelations of clergy child abuse.
Two children are kidnapped setting off a multi-level mystery story set in a small town in the upper Midwest. The story has dizzying twists and turns touching on the spiritual and the sensual.
I found the novel entertaining. It kept my interest and I wanted to keep reading to see what would happen next. There is so much going on on so many levels; the mystery, the conspiracy, the supernatural. the serious and the comic. The author does a wonderful job of capturing the vernacular of the small town characters and the rhythm of their life in 1949.
Digging Up Bones will make you mad, make you wonder and make you laugh, but you will never be bored.
