NEW YORK, July 1, 2019 – Alonce Thomas, a native of Detroit, Michigan, who taught college-level composition and technical writing, has completed her new book, “Root of Evil”: an engrossing book that follows a twisting, perilous quest to uncover the mystery of a woman’s disappearance from a retirement community.

Thomas writes, “Rose Abernathy was a fixture around the Woodland Hills Active Adult Community.  Careening around in her golf cart with her canine companion, walking the wooded trails, or reading on a bench, Rose was recognized by all.  Then one day she vanished. 

While four frantic neighbors try their hands at amateur sleuthing to find Rose, her husband also disappears, their home burns to the ground, and human remains are found in the ruins.   When the hunt for two missing persons and an arsonist turns into a double murder investigation, the four women ignore warnings from local law enforcement and become targets themselves.  Can the ‘snooping’ group solve the mysteries before one of them is added to the list of casualties?”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Alonce Thomas’s new book presents a suspenseful plot that pushes people beyond their normal behavioral boundaries to help someone in trouble.

Root of Evil is the story of four retired friends and their dangerous investigation into the disappearance of a neighbor.

Readers can purchase “Root of Evil” through bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
