Dark Debts

Karen Hall

In Dark Debts, Karen Hall masterfully combines Southern Gothic, romantic comedy, and mystery in a wildly original theological thriller that has become a cult favorite since being published 20 years ago. In this new anniversary edition, the author has reimagined her work. The result is a suspenseful, irreverent, and deeply spiritual novel that captivates from the very beginning and doesn't let go. When Randa, a reporter for an alternative newspaper in Los Angeles, receives an urgent phone call from her estranged lover, Cam, she rushes to his apartment. She arrives to discover that he's leapt from the building to his death. Police believe that before committing suicide, Cam also murdered someone in a convenience store, but Randa does not believe Cam was capable of such an act. She seeks out Cam's brother, Jack, who is living off the grid somewhere near Atlanta, in hope of figuring out what really happened. Meanwhile, a Jesuit priest named Michael Kinney has been exiled from New York City to the boondocks of Georgia after making controversial public statements. He has said things that educated people of faith are not supposed to express. Even more problematically, he has fallen in love with a woman, and the last surviving member of his family has kept a shocking family secret from him. How these characters converge is part of the thrilling mystery of Dark Debts, a cult favorite first published 20 years ago. In this new edition, author Karen Hall has reimaged her Southern Gothic tale, and the result is a work of even greater power - a brilliantly realized and suspenseful evocation of the conflict between good and evil.
