PRLog - Jul. 12, 2012 - CHANDLER, Ariz. -- CHANDLER (AZ)—Brighton Publishing LLC announces the eBook release of Dawn Whidden’s mesmerizing new novel, A Child is Torn: Innocence Lost. This intriguing mystery is sure to stir the reader’s secret fears of mental illness, childhood abuse, and the ravaging effects it has on our own lives and those around us. A Child is Torn: Innocence Lost is now available in all popular eBook formats from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other leading eBook retailers.
A Child is Torn: Innocence Lost engages readers from the outset as a double homicide occurs in a small town in upstate New York. Brad Madison, a ten-year-old boy, is covered in blood and found playing video games in his living room while the bodies of both his parents are discovered slain upstairs. When questioned, young Brad confesses to both murders.
Mental health specialist Doctor Hope Rubin is brought in to ascertain the boy’s mental stability and to offer a suitable medical treatment for Brad. Dr. Rubin’s extensive training and experience in child abuse and mental trauma lead her to believe that something is amiss. Unfortunately, Dr. Rubin suffers from her own issues as she struggles to regain control of her life from her domineering mother.
Meanwhile, Detective Jean Whitley, a happily married mother of two and Officer Marty Keal, a striking bachelor with a deep sense of family loyalty, are assigned to investigate the grisly killings. To both detectives, though, the facts don’t line up—something more sinister appears to be lurking in the shadows of the case. Detective Whitley’s maternal instincts lead her to believe in Brad’s childhood innocence. She is convinced that something or someone drove Brad to commit this horrible act.
Eventually, Doctor Rubin stumbles across some Madison family skeletons that may lead them to understand what lead to this terrible tragedy.
“Dawn Whidden has taken on the demons of mental illness and childhood abuse with her own powerful weapon—the written word,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing LLC. “With the skillful precision of a master craftsman, Ms. Whidden guides her readers into a world fraught with tawdry characters and nightmarish realities—a truly compelling book from every angle.”
Author Dawn Whidden is a 1976 graduate of Queensboro Community College, New York. She is currently married to her husband of fourteen years and resides in a small farming community in north central Florida.
