Award-Winning Author Joanne Parsons Releases New Suspense Novel "Predator in the House" Raises Awareness to Child Abuse and Sex Trafficking
“Bestselling Author, Dr. Melissa Caudle, sums up Predator in the House. “…dynamic and compelling. It grabs you from the first word and doesn’t let you go until the very end. Bravo for Parsons for writing this book.””
“Predator in the House” by Joanne Parsons is not a grim story, but it is suspenseful. It’s a fast-moving cat and mouse game between a dysfunctional couple with the Goal to Bring Awareness to the Dangers of Sex Trafficking
HARWICH, MA, USA – AUGUST 14, 2020 –Joanne Parsons is fulfilling a commitment she made to herself during her career in healthcare to donate proceeds to a charity of her choice. “I wrote Predator in the House as an entertaining and intriguing crime novel with authentic characters.” She is standing behind her commitment, donating the first one-thousand dollars in pre-order sales proceeds to an organization that specifically helps children -- The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Parsons began writing after being widowed and retiring. She is author of two historical fiction novels, award-winning, Kitchen Canary, and its sequel Through the Open Door.
“Predator in the House is not a grim story. It’s a crime suspense novel that deals with an issue facing many families today – their children are missing while others have been kidnapped and forced into sex trafficking. Missing and runaway children have become a mainstream issue in America, and as parents, teachers, and healthcare workers, we need to be aware of the methods used to lure them away. My goal is to educate and inform and encourage people to intervene when they suspect a child is not safe, is in a situation of abuse or is being sex trafficked.”
“It’s a fast-moving cat and mouse game between a dysfunctional married couple who share a common bond. Karl Shea is a law officer searching for a missing child; his wife, Shirley, has her own complex agenda and faces dilemmas and when faced with the unthinkable joins her husband. Their shared secrets tie them together until the very end,” Parson says.
Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review, recently previewed the novel. “Readers who like a good investigative piece accompanied by broader social and ethical issues will find Predator in theHouse a perfect choice. It is a crime novel like no other.”
