Author: B.K. Sweeting
Genre: Fiction, Mystery
Filled with mystery, thrill, and unexpected twists and turns, “PEARLIZED” is a must-read fiction masterpiece. The novel tells the story of Oisín Murphy. As a boy, he discovered a small lustrous pearl in a pool of crimson gore, next to the numeral twelve drawn in blood, on the frozen bay behind his home. Before he knew it, Oisín was drowning in the darkness below the icy surface. His harrowing experience would haunt him for years because it was the anniversary of his mother’s unsolved disappearance.
Oisín has long since believed that the Pearl Point Murderer had killed his mother. Although, both the authorities and his peers don’t acknowledge what he saw as a boy. Oisín’s internal demons arise from an isolated routine during a worldwide pandemic.
To make matters darker, the past comes knocking on the 13th of October as an ominous birthday note, summoning him to face that bone-chilling day on the bay. A deadly adventure ensues, across east and west coastal waters, intertwining the ones closest to Oisín and bringing him to a climax that you won’t see coming.
