This new book published by Dog Ear Publishing is the third installment of Robert Paul Blumenstein’s fascinating Ascension Trilogy; Peyton Costello is back, as is his arch-nemesis, the evil Opossum, who was responsible for Peyton’s wrongful incarceration as well as the grisly murders of Peyton’s parents. Opossum’s escape from prison kick-starts the thrilling adventure as Peyton races against time to keep Opossum from potentially destroying humanity.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Blood in the Ground” by Robert Paul Blumenstein.

Peyton Costello is a hero readers can cheer for as they hope for the ultimate destruction of the dark and twisted Opossum.

Peyton Costello is a man who is searching for some peace in this new novel. He’s hunted down the man who murdered his parents, Opossum, and handed him over to the authorities, who quickly determined that the death penalty is in order. However, Peyton is haunted by visions of horror -- a brand of horror that is applied by Opossum alone. These visions are terrifying enough to tear him from his pregnant wife, Oriana, and their young son and compel him to contact Captain Phil Mahoney in Richmond, Virginia, where Opossum was held on death row. Shortly after Peyton’s inquiry, the worst-case scenario becomes reality: Opossum is free, and he’s coming after Peyton.
Accompanied by Father Gates, a priest who spent time with the former prisoner, and Dr. Kirkpatrick, one of the psychiatrists who worked closely with Opossum during his imprisonment, Mahoney makes his way to Germany, where Peyton and his family have lived quietly for the last few years. Together, Mahoney and Peyton follow Opossum around the globe, attempting to stop him from wreaking havoc among the innocent. Can Peyton and Mahoney keep Opossum and his evil impulses at bay? Will light ultimately triumph over darkness, and can Peyton survive the battle?
"Blood in the Ground" is a thrill ride, with twists and turns that will keep the reader wanting more. Peyton Costello is a hero readers can cheer for as they hope for the ultimate destruction of the dark and twisted Opossum. Self-proclaimed “writer of metaphysical fiction” Robert Paul Blumenstein has published two other novels, the first two books of the riveting Ascension Trilogy.
