ASHES and DUST are two heart-pounding novella-thrillers in Sahar Abdulaziz’s Evil Never Dies Series that will captivate readers with their gripping narratives and suspenseful storytelling.
In ASHES, Abdulaziz thrusts readers into a world of intrigue and danger after Tobias Brandt is found dead. His eldest son, with the support of his siblings, writes an obituary and has it published in the local newspaper. But instead of celebrating their father’s accomplishments and honoring his memory, it’s a scathing, contemptuous, and revealing account of the legacy of damage he caused.
Without closure, Tobias’s death ignites an unforeseeable sequence of events that force his surviving children to unravel, one perilous upset after the next.
DUST (Book 2) takes readers on an adrenaline-fueled journey when Sydney Hanes—her past problem (literally) dead and buried, a “new” family she could only dream of having, and an exciting life-affirming career change, finally feels like she belongs. That was until a State Senator was pronounced dead under suspicious circumstances. The widow reaches out to a mutual friend, imploring him to convince Sydney to help in the way that only Sydney can.
However, unbeknownst to Sydney, a not-bargained-for, underhanded change of plan is in the works. But before she can put two and two together, police arrest Sydney and charge her with extortion, leaving her unaware that someone dangerously powerful is behind the scenes, plotting to turn the blackmail charge into murder.
ASHES and DUST from Sahar Abdulaziz’s series Evil Never Dies—is a riveting 2-part suspense story laden with hidden agendas and conflicts threatening to tear Sydney and those she loves apart. It is also a story about broken people navigating the complexities of a social system designed to reward the powerful. With pulse-pounding plots and well-crafted characters, both novellas promise to keep readers on the edge of their seats from beginning to end, making them must-reads for thriller genre aficionados.
