Theo’s interest in a memorial launches him…

The subtitle “A Legacy of Memories” reflects the story’s connection with the sequel coming in March. Published by Palmetto Publishing Group. Available in Kindle and paperback.

Testament – An Unexpected Return (March 2018)

“Do you know what a banshee is?” This repeated inquiry in the opening chapters of the story sets the tone for the rest of the drama that unfolds in Testament, An Unexpected Return.

In this sequel to Sanctuary, A Legacy of Memories, Theo and his wife Liddy are finally sinking deep roots into their new hometown of Shiloh. Friendships are blossoming as Liddy ponders an offer to become the new art teacher at Shiloh High while Theo sends off his manuscript for Jessie’s Story to be published. Life appears to be settling down, but ominous shadows from the town’s past herald more tragedy lie ahead in little old Shiloh.

“The testament of a man lies not in the magnitude of possessions and property left to his heirs, but the reach of his legacy long after his death.” Theo Phillips

Third & Final Novel in the Shiloh Mystery Series. May 26, 2020 Release

WHEN THEO AND LIDDY retired to the small Georgia town of Shiloh, they expected a quieter life, but then Theo became the investigative reporter for the local Sentinel and discovered that small towns can be just as dangerous as big cities for people devoted to seeking the truth. Having narrowly escaped a brush with death, in Purgatory, Theo tackles what he hopes will be an easier investigation: helping the orphaned Pepper trace her murderous mother’s past. But when an armored limousine purchased by Theo’s friend and neighbor Zeb brings another spate of shady characters to Shiloh, Theo finds himself in the middle of another high-pressure plot, building to an explosive conclusion at the town’s Independence Day celebrations.
