WIN an e-copy of Gae-Lynn Woods’ first novel in the Cass Elliot crime series by answering a simple question in the Comments below:

Justice and vengeance each play a role in the Cass Elliot Crime Novels. In your mind, is there ever a time when vengeance is the right answer to a wrong committed against you or someone else?

About The Devil of Light


When young Detective Cass Elliot responds to a 911 call at the home of a prominent businessman, she finds him violently murdered in the barnyard with his battered wife unconscious near the tool that killed him. Still raw from her own unsolved attack six years ago, Cass is stunned when confronted with graphic photographs scattered across their kitchen floor that lead to a shadowy sect called The Church of the True Believer.


Cass and her partner Mitch Stone delve into a cunning world of blackmail and violence – and find a cult concealed for nearly a century beneath the genteel, small town façade of Arcadia in East Texas. Their investigation triggers a brutal response from powerful men who will protect their identities at any cost. They unleash a ruthless killer whose actions create a media frenzy and destroy the fabric of trust within the police department.


Cass and Mitch circle closer to the cult’s few members, following a slim lead into a night lit by fire. A night that begins with a blood ritual and ends with Cass holding a man’s life – or death – in her hands and struggling to walk the fine line between vengeance and justice.

  1. I love novels where the bad guy gets what’s coming to him and I feel it should be that way in real life. I like to think that what goes around comes around and the people get what they deserve. Whether I need to dole it out myself is another story.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to reply, Sherry. I agree with you – I like it when the bad guys get what’s coming to them! Please send your email address to contact @ and I’ll send a copy of The Devil of Light to you – enjoy!

  2. Oops! Didn’t answer the question, which is a good one. Yes. If there’s no one to defend the helpless, we must find a way within or without to stop those who work in darkness.

  3. This book, “The Devil of Light”, sounds scary good!! Maybe a good DAYTIME book!! 😉 Will have to read it!

  4. My personal opinion is that people will eventually reap the consequences of their actions, so it’s not up to us to seek vengeance ourselves. It’s just the age-old saying of “what goes around comes around”. Depending on the nature of the injustice, we may or may not want to be there when it does! 😉

    1. Hi Angie – thanks for the comment. I get what you’re saying, and I certainly don’t want what I’ve done to come back around to bite me!

      Send your email address to contact at gaelynnwoods dot com and I’ll get an e-copy of The Devil of Light to you.

  5. Just finished Avengers of Blood, loved both books. I was intrigued from the first page and can’t wait for the third book, so hurry up.
