Advanced praise for Cracks in the Wall
“Duke Southard skillfully transports the reader into his story with deftly chosen details and subtle humor. I got an immediate feel for his characters and was driven to know more about them. So compelling!”
Lynn Cullen, bestselling author of Mrs. Poe and Twain’s End.
“Duke Southard has done it again. Cracks in the Wall goes above and beyond the craftsmanship and suspense of the first two Parker Havenot novels. This story will keep you guessing and you’ll be tempted to flip ahead to the ending. Don’t do it! Enjoy the up and down ride as the disturbing plot unfolds.”
Denise Roessle, author of Second-Chance Mother
“Perhaps the book’s greatest strength is its ability to function as a warning to women who are in an abusive relationship. The small, tell-tale signs are presented in such a way that any woman in such a situation will be able to identify the danger signs and hopefully choose to extract herself. In this sense, the book does not just have entertainment value, but can be incredibly important.
