Two hundred years ago, a runaway slave calls upon the gods of his people seeking vengeance against his murderous master. After a strange but wondrous secret ceremony, the gods send their most fearsome servant, the Eater of Hearts, to Earth—with a mission to assure justice is served.
In 1991, paramedic Galen Morris responds to an emergency call involving an old friend, a retired anthropology professor named Albert Gaston. With his dying breath, Gaston begs him to deliver a box to a former colleague. But Galen cannot resist the temptation to look inside, and releases a terrifying relic from the past.
After two hundred years, the Eater of Hearts is once again free, and Galen is running for his life. His only hope is Gaston’s colleague, Professor Paxon, who is hundreds of miles away. Together with his beautiful partner, Audra, he must seek out Paxon and pray the professor has an answer.
There is no time to sleep. Or eat. Or breathe. The Eater of Hearts is coming…

“Few debut novels pack the punch of a seasoned professional, but Dark Justice does just that. Visceral, complex, and riveting, here is a story that spans time and pushes the genre’s boundaries. Kept me reading until the early morning hours.”

—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle



Dark Justice is a story that begs to be finished in one huge gulp. Light pulls the reader along, moving effortlessly between the past and the present as he spins a tale of revenge, loss, love, and yes, well-deserved justice. This book was as taut and enjoyable as any high-speed car chase movie. Give it a try!”

—Sylvia Shults, author of Borrowed Flesh and Ghosts of the Illinois River



With a dual storyline from both past and present, this novel (Dark Justice) wove the two tales together in expert fashion. The suspense in each storyline is tremendous and Mr. Light really knows how to build on it with each chapter. I truly had trouble putting this book down… the storyline was enthralling. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.”
