Max Point is a tightly woven suspense thriller that pits two unlikely allies against a force of evil that can be traced to the very dawn of creation. On an overgrown logging trail in the remote little vacation town of Max Point, Jack Kelly begins his return home after a summer of solitude in his lakeside cabin. Another season’s passing to Jack meant nothing more than another year separating him from the agonizing memories of his wife’s death and the horrors he saw when he served in Southeast Asia. Lisa Freemont’s return from her last summer of employment at the Tide Pool Inn to college was to her the beginning of a new life. The drive back to school was filled with plans and visions of what doors her graduation from Stonehurst College would open. As they begin their journeys they are inexorably drawn together into a secret world of darkness and sexual excess.
