Devious. Conniving. Deceitful. Beatrice Miller is a serial kidnapper of three children. To her son, David, these horrific crimes are the most appalling and horrendous acts he can imagine any human committing. He can’t imagine his own mother doing, or saying, anything more monstrous.
David Miller is about to discover how wrong he really is.
When his mother is sentenced to thirty years in prison, David moves to Phoenix and opens a foundation dedicated to finding and returning home missing and exploited children. For the crimes committed by his mother, David feels it is his duty—his responsibility—
It is said that beneath every secret another secret lies, and for David, reading his mother’s journal opens a Pandora’s Box of both knowledge and emotion, and soon he finds himself determined to repair their relationship. But as Beatrice herself tells him each time he visits her in prison, “Remember, David, things aren’t always what they seem.”
David’s Never Give Up Foundation is more successful than ever, earning its reputation off of cases where other agencies, and even law enforcement, had failed. But all of it, and David’s life, will come crashing to the ground when the police come knocking on his door. Arrested, taken to North Dakota, and charged with the heinous murder of a newborn baby, David learns quickly how prophetic his mother’s words, indeed, were.
Can Beatrice Miller save her son? Will she? Is anything what it appears to be?
“R.K. Avery is one of those rare writers who is willing to honestly reveal herself on the written page—every emotion, every experience no matter how terrifying are laid bare for the reader to feel,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing. “Her bravery, her courage as a writer, is the reason for her success, and the reason her fans have been so vocal asking for more since turning the final page of her first book. NOT MY MOTHER'S SON will impress and astound and continue building a name for this very fine writer.”
R. K. Avery, a recent graduate of the Institute of Children’s Literature, discovered one thing during her coursework – she loves writing adult fiction, especially fiction that makes you ponder about it long after you’ve put the book down. R. K. Avery lives in Macedonia, Ohio, with her family, which includes three Morkie dogs. NOT MY MOTHER'S SON is her second novel. Please visit her at http://www.rkaverybooks.com
