Product Description

Rachel Taylor lives a rather mundane existence in 1797 at the way station her family runs along the Wilderness Road in Tennessee. She attends her friend Sally Rice's wedding only to watch the marriage dissolve into horror as the groom, Wiley Harpe, and his cousin Micajah become murderers on the run, who drag their families along. Declaring a "war on all humanity," the Harpes won't be stopped, and Ben Langford is on their trail to see if his own cousin was one of their latest victims.

Editorial Reviews

"A brave book, taking an almost forgotten piece of southern history and shining God’s redemptive light into the darkness. The Blue Cloak is pure historical suspense, well told, that will keep you on the edge of your seat until justice is served." 
–Laura Frantz, Christy Award–winning author of An Uncommon Woman
 
 
"With careful respect and diligent research, McNear uses a deft stroke to depict a terrible, dark piece of history. The writing is powerful, and the suspense had my gut clenched as I journeyed with these characters along the Wilderness Road. The Blue Cloak is masterful, historical suspense!"
–Ronie Kendig, best-selling author of The Tox Files
 
 
"A haunting story of innocence gone wrong, The Blue Cloak is a devastating account of a true eighteenth century killing spree. Author Shannon McNear handles the heart-wrenching details in a fashion that keeps you at the edge of your seat."
–Michelle Griep, Christy Award–winning author of the Once Upon a Dickens Christmas series
 
 
"Shannon McNear handles a dark chapter of true history with her customary skill and tact, drawing redemption from the clutches of evil while illustrating the strength of the human spirit when undergirded by the power of prayer. You won’t rest—or be able to stop turning pages—until the guilty are brought to justice."
–Denise Weimer, LPC historical imprints managing editor and multi-published author of The Witness Tree
 
 
"If you love true crimes from the past and yet want to see how good triumphs, don’t miss The Blue Cloak. Equal parts history, horror, suspense, redemption, and grace, this is a story not to be missed!"
–Jennifer Uhlarik, award-winning author of Sand Creek Serenade
 
"Shannon McNear has become one of my top favorite authors of historical fiction. Her ability to create a vivid, historically authentic world inhabited by a cast of memorable characters immediately draws me into her stories. The Blue Cloak illustrates this precious truth in a deeply moving way that left me humbled by the undeserved grace poured out to all of us weak and wayward sinners."
–J. M. Hochstetler, author of the American Patriot Series and coauthor with Bob Hostetler of the Northkill Amish Series
