Have you read Oracle by J C Martin?

Today’s Wednesday feature book has appeared on this blog before, during the author’s blog tour and otherwise. I’m happy to feature an excerpt this time from the mystery thriller Oracle by J C Martin.

Elevator pitch:

Days before the Olympics, a serial killer stalks the streets of London.
Detective Kurt Lancer, as he struggles to raise a disabled daughter, is in a
race against time to find the killer before he strikes on the biggest stage of
allβ€”the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games.

Teaser Excerpt:

My eyes began
to burnβ€”an incredible, searing pain as if someone had shoved glowing hot pokers
through both my eye sockets.
I cried out.
My hands shot to my face as I tried to wipe the fiery chemical away, but every
brush of my fingers left a blazing trail of hot coals across my corneas. My eyes
watered. As my vision descended into a red haze of pain, my cheeks and lips
started to tingle.
My whole face
was on fire.
