Lapse of Humanity

Authored by Kevin J. Curtis

The late summer night is disturbed by a gruesome scene as police are called to investigate the murder of a fellow officer. The man's throat was cut in a confrontation with a killer who was trained by the U.S. military and who "fell off the humanity wagon" while working for the CIA overseas.

Don Fredericks becomes the subject of a manhunt in the northern wilderness area of Parson's Valley. U.S. Fish & Wildlife volunteer John DeLoss, is recruited by the somewhat cantankerous, heavy drinking police detective Lars Swenson-to lead the way into the wilderness that John knows so well. As John attempts to help the authorities to find their quarry, he falls in love with a female forest ranger-while also becoming the target of the killer he is chasing. In order to survive, John DeLoss finds that he not only has to face the former Special Forces commando-turned-killer, but he must also face a part of himself that he fears has become like the killer in the process.

Eventually John must elude and then confront Fredericks in the wilderness in a showdown that you will not believe. Don Fredericks lost his humanity when he was forced to watch the beheading of his special ops partner years before. Will he regain his humanity in time to save himself and John DeLoss?
