Echo from a Bayou by J Luke Bennecke
MURDER, TREASURE, AND A SUPERNATURAL TWIST COLLIDE IN THIS HIGH CONCEPT SUSPENSE THRILLER
Approaching middle age with an overwhelming sense of disappointment is not what John Bastian envisioned for himself. Hoping to shake his despair and change his luck, John hits the ski slopes, plunging headlong into an accident that leaves him in a coma.
Post-coma John may seem physically well, but mentally he is a changed man, different in ways too bizarre to explain to others. Something like a dream, but more like a memory, clings to his psyche. Unshakable visions of a cursed treasure, a brutal ax attack, and a vibrant red-head consume his thoughts, propelling him toward a dangerous future that feels as inevitable as his past.
John sets out on a journey to find answers and hunt down the man who murdered him in his past life. Faced with danger at every turn and with a hurricane fast approaching, John must fight for his survival and the safety of those he loves. With threats haunting him at every turn, will he find redemption, or will he be consumed by his quest for revenge?
