About the book:
When Death Draws Near (Thomas Nelson, August 2016)
Death has always been part of Gwen Marcey's job. But when faced with her own mortality, everything takes on a different hue.
Forensic artist Gwen Marcey is between jobs and homes when she accepts temporary work in Pikeville, Kentucky. The Eastern Kentucky town, located deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, has been plagued by a serial rapist and a series of unexplained deaths. Before Gwen can develop a composite drawing, the latest witness vanishes, just like all the previous victims.
Turning her attention to sketching the face of an unidentified body, she discovers a link between his death and a Pentecostal serpent-handling church. Serpent-handling is illegal in Kentucky, and the churches have gone underground to avoid the authorities and continue to worship as they believe. Gwen is offered a handsome reward to infiltrate the renegade members, a reward she desperately needs as it seems her breast cancer has returned.
Joined by her digitally-obsessed, Generation Z daughter, Gwen goes undercover to a nineteenth century revival, planning to draw the faces of the snake handlers so they can be identified and arrested. Instead she uncovers a murderous plot and a festering evil.

About the author:
"When Death Draws Near" is the first of Carrie Stuart Parks' Gwen Marcey's novel that I have read and I am now looking forward to reading the other two books in the series. Gwen takes on a temporary job as she is in between work at the time. This small town has a huge amount of issues going on as their appears to be a serial rapist, deaths and possibly some underground activities and illegal events taking place. However, Gwen isn't receiving the support she was hoping for and she soon finds herself right smack in the midst of the problems and quite possibly her own life on the line. This is a fast-moving book filled with twists and turns, drama and suspense. Gwen is a great main character as she has a fascinating and never boring job, and is facing real life challenges; therefore making her completely relatable and easy to empathize with. I highly recommend this latest read from Carrie!
