Cold Water by Samuel Parker


Release Date : Jan 2, 2018

“They fear us because they know—they know!that with one momentary lapse of reason they could be us.” 

Cold Water by Samuel Parker



Wow! This book was intense. Pulse pounding is right!  From the first page right to the last. Aside from the suspense, Samuel Parker provides much food for thought. This book is somewhat like a mirror wherein you find you are examining your own motives, your own thoughts and thinking , “What would I do if I were in that situation?”

Cold Water is the second book written by Samuel Parker, the first was Purgatory Road. I found Cold Water  brilliantly thought out and more than just a suspense novel, it was challenging on  personal level. Sort of like a moral plumb line of sorts. Without giving away too much, you will learn a lot about yourself and what you believe while reading this book. Parker examines the very fabric of humanity. Lots to think about.

Having forfeited his youth to the state prison system, Michael moved back to the only home he’d ever known. An empty shell of a man who now lived–if it could be called living–in the still vacant house of his parents in a town with one stoplight. A town that hated him. Had always hated him. And was ready to pick up where the prison system had let off.

Now he’s on the run from men who’ve tried to kill him once; but Michael is more than an ex-con. A powerful, sinister force creeps inside him, threatening and destructive. Who–and what–it will destroy next is the only real question. From the bold voice that brought readers down Purgatory Road comes a new pulse-pounding, spine-rattling tale of vengeance and justice that will have them up all night.




Samuel Parker was born in the Michigan boondocks but was raised on a never-ending road trip through the U.S. Besides writing, he is a process junkie and the ex-guitarist for several metal bands you’ve never heard of. He lives in West Michigan with his wife and twin sons.
