If You Like S.A. Cosby Books, You’ll Love…

S.A. Cosby Synopsis: My Darkest Prayer is a standalone novel by S.A. Cosby. Whether it’s working at his cousin’s funeral home or tossing around the local undesirables at his favorite watering hole, Nathan Waymaker is a man who knows how to handle the bodies. Formerly a Marine and Sheriff’s deputy, Nathan has built a reputation in his small Southern town as a man who can help when all other options have been exhausted. When a local minister with grandiose ambitions is found dead, Nathan is approached by his parishioners who feel the local police are dragging their feet with the investigation. What starts out as an easy payday soon descends into a maze of mayhem filled with wannabe gangsters, vicious crime lords, porn stars, crooked police officers and a particularly treacherous preacher and his mysterious wife. Nathan must use all his varied skills and some of his wit to navigate the murky waters of small town corruption even as dark secrets of his own threaten to come to the surface.
