The call came in the middle of the night. Rich Brant was just sweating through another Vietnam nightmare when the phone rang.
“It’s Kit,” his brother moaned. “They’ve taken her.”
They don’t know what they’ve done…
Kidnapped from a busy mall, Brant’s beloved 19-year old niece is in a world of trouble. Hard-nosed inquiries suggest that she has been snatched for auction by the international sexual slavery ring run by the ruthless Goran, also known as The Serb. Kit’s final destination: a modern harem, a brothel, a dungeon, or one of the Serb’s kinky slavery clubs.
Now Brant will need his inconsistent and sometimes unreliable psychic ability more than he ever did in Vietnam and what came after… He reconnects with his Vietnam buddies, some of them ex-cops, to help him pry Kit from Goran’s clutches.
Brant becomes rescuer, avenging angel — and executioner. In his quest, there may be redemption for his own past sins. Or there may only be new sins…
If you liked the movie “Taken,” let SAVAGE NIGHTS take you much, much farther into the darkness…. Will appeal to fans of “Taken” and Lee Child’s Reacher books, but only if they prefer a pulls-no-punches hard-noir thriller that’s not for the faint of heart.
Includes bonus material: excerpts from other horror thrillers by W.D. Gagliani, and a complete crime short story by David Benton and W.D. Gagliani (excerpt from the Benton & Gagliani collection, Mysteries & Mayhem).
“I was familiar with Gagliani’s horror work but I’m pleased to see he can take it to the streets, too. Tense, raw, and rich with drama and passion. Gagliani’s a keeper.”
— Scott Nicholson, author of The Skull Ring, The Red Church, and Disintegration
“SAVAGE NIGHTS is, in a word, intense! … The action in this book is incredible. As I got closer to the pinnacle of the plot, it was as if I could not read fast enough. My eyes flew across the words, hungry for what would happen next. I was surprised at some of the twists and turns, and when the story was over, I was exhausted. It was that intense.”
— Tiffany Harkleroad, Tiffany’s Bookshelf
“I truly enjoyed it and the pages kept turning… the suspense grew, the shocks had real jolt, and the big scenes were big and satisfying…better than (David) Morrell!”
— Brian Pinkerton, author of Abducted and Vengeance
