In this tour de force of literature, Kenney takes us to Spokane, Washington, but it isn`t a city you`d recognize. The houses are all identical. Food is distributed courtesy of the Agriculture Council. Religion has been declared illegal, and the United States is governed by a dictatorial Socialist Regime, headed by a godlike figure, Czerno, with whom disobedience breeds death.
Welcome to the world of Erik Christian, the Assistant District Attorney for Spokane. Patriotic and well educated, Erik is a perfect example of an upstanding Socialist citizen. But he is also a veteran of America`s massive and bloody Second Civil War, and Erik is plagued by ghosts of his past. When two police officers are murdered, the DA asks Erik to take the case. Soon Erik is engulfed in conspiracies, hidden agendas, and secrets that some would kill to keep covered. With one simple stroke, Erik`s world comes crashing down on him leaving him to wonder; in a world of lies, is anything real?
Witch Hunt is a stunning magnum opus crafted by the quick witted, and sharp tongued, Jacob Kenney. It`s an exploration into the idea of justice, and even though told through the perspective of another world, it shows some eerie similarities with our own. Kenney fills every space from the title to the end with awe striking descriptions, mind numbing terror and haunting narratives that leave the reader breathless. Every word from the moment you turn the first page to the second you finish the last isn`t simply bound to engross you, it will change you!
