Today's Wednesday feature book has appeared on this blog before, during the author's blog tour and otherwise. I'm happy to feature an excerpt this time from the mystery thriller Oracle by J C Martin.
Days before the Olympics, a serial killer stalks the streets of London. Detective Kurt Lancer, as he struggles to raise a disabled daughter, is in a race against time to find the killer before he strikes on the biggest stage of all—the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games.
My eyes began to burn—an incredible, searing pain as if someone had shoved glowing hot pokers through both my eye sockets.
I cried out. My hands shot to my face as I tried to wipe the fiery chemical away, but every brush of my fingers left a blazing trail of hot coals across my corneas. My eyes watered. As my vision descended into a red haze of pain, my cheeks and lips started to tingle.
My whole face was on fire.
