Canberra, Australia (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
In her new book “The Hand of Kali” (published by Balboa Press), Freya Dauth tells the story of a troubled young woman pursued by a murderous cult who tries to strip her of the only connection she has to her family.
Mimi lives a life of seclusion – not only from the world, but from her own feelings. She lost her parents and husband in a fatal car crash years earlier in Pakistan, and she has since become increasingly detached from the world. Now, all she has left is a collection of rare sacred objects and art – gifts from her parents. When she returns home one day to find her home and beloved dog ravaged by burglars, her shock is great that she can’t see the crime as more than what it is – a simple home invasion.
But what Mimi doesn’t yet know is that the break-in is a targeted attack by a vicious cult whose members are determined to recover an ancient piece of sculpture Mimi inherited from her father. They believe that the sculpture of the hand of the goddess Kali, holding a sickle and noose, has supernatural powers – and they will stop at nothing to recover it from Mimi’s collection.
Mimi’s solitude and peace of mind are threatened by these attacks, but ironically, this may be just what she needs to regain control of her life, as she and Tom, an investigative journalist, work to expose the cult to keep her safe.
