Biblio Publishing of Columbus, Ohio, has released Hunter of Giants, a story set in Southern Ohio, by T. Dale Jones (Terrence Jones). The author is an Ohio native and faculty member of Eastern Arizona College.
The story begins in the Portsmouth region along the Ohio River: Millbrook Park in New Boston, Shawnee Park, West Union, Peebles, Serpent Mound and several other Ohio settings and references are included in the story.
The central characters are believable, the settings and historical references accurate. The plot revolves around William Harper who serves as a special deputy for the U.S. Marshals Service Special Operations Group. He returns to his birthplace in southern Ohio after the curious death of a friend.
As he relives memories of his early life, a central plot emerges from his childhood conflict with a local street antagonist.
The reader shares Will Harper’s journey through the colorful and idyllic days of his childhood into the treacherous territories of the underworld in pursuit of the story’s formal antagonist.
The manhunt culminates in the once notorious Hocking Hills, home of Ohio University.
The book will have great appeal to readers who appreciate the influence of childhood experiences, who enjoy conflict and suspense. It will also engage those who are charmed by the inexplicable.
An early, unpublished version of the novel was a semi-finalist in an annual Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society writing competition.
