Someone is stealing souls, and Cay’s is next.

Where Cayenne Jensen grew up, Warrior Rock Lighthouse stands sentinel above waters split by Sauvie Island, Washington and Oregon states, and the good and evil intentions of a serial killer.

Found adrift in a storm-tossed boat on the Columbia River, four-year-old Cay believes the lighthouse shadows have forever hidden the reason she was abandoned, and her mother’s fate. Now, as an adult, she is drowning in the dark and frigid currents of losing her husband, her home, and being suspected of murder.

The secrets of her past, and how they tie to her present, remain hidden—until an innocent encounter makes her the target of a twisted mind. To survive, Cay must cut open memories, face her fears, and follow a trail of raw bones into the killer’s lair.

“Split River” carries the reader through an idyllic world of lush vegetation, wildlife, and island people, as a young woman struggles to channel her fractured life streams and wash clear the mystery of Warrior Rock.

Editorial reviews:

“Jessie Tyson evokes the sights, smells, accents and atmosphere of early 20th century northern England to give us a tale of re-incarnation that marches past even our present times; a novel of hope and of the multiple chances that re-incarnation provides the soul in search of enlightenment.” —Shane Joseph, author of The Ulysses Man

“A terrifying tale of reincarnation, demons and protective blue ghosts. Debut author Jessie B. Tyson paints a literary landscape of bygone days so skillfully the main characters leap off the pages into our hearts.” —Betty Dravis, best-selling co-author of Six-Pack of Blood

“Jessie has written a fast paced book with vivid characters. The sense of place is thoroughly described and puts the reader firmly in the scene—I could imagine everything clearly. Her main character is likeable and you will find yourself wanting to know what happens next. A great book to get lost in on a rainy day.” —Dionne Lister, author of Shadows of the Realm

“Nobody knows how to entwine a novel together better than Jessie B. Tyson, as she draws us into a life with Beth, a young lady who seems to have the most complicated life and survival. Beth’s path is paved with horror, suspense, paranormal, life, death, love and hate all woven together with such powerfulness, so real, so fragile, yet gripping enough to keep you on the edge to know more. I fell in love with Beth and her sharp mind, fragile body, and her warm heart, and you will too.” —Peggy Grigowski, author of A Glimpse of What If

Previously published as a Pinnacle Book under the pseudonym J. Knight.

Synopsis: The residents of a small town find that the secret to immortality is murder.

Welcome to Anderson. It’s quiet here and that’s how we like it. Except….

Madge Duffy sliced her husband’s throat last week. Thought she killed him, but then John walked out of the morgue none the worse for wear.

The new preacher’s calling it a “miracle,” but I don’t know. It isn’t right.

I think there might be other people coming back, too.

Like Deputy Haws, for one. He’s got a bullet hole in his one good shirt and he won’t talk about it.

You know Peg Culler down at the diner…the one with the little girl on life support? Well, she’s talking about pulling the plug, and nobody ever thought she’d do that, not in a million years. She thinks it might be the only way to get her back.

Then there’s that gang of kids that hangs around the reservoir…not one of them can look you in the eye without breaking into a cold sweat. They’re keeping a secret, and it’s got them all on edge.

Something’s going on in this town of ours, something that makes your skin crawl and your teeth grind in the night. I don’t know what it is, but I know this:

It scares me.
