Dayton, OH, April 27, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- "Junction" by Cody Schlegel was chosen as Medalist Winner in the Psychological Suspense category of the New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.
Joey Sheeks is the biggest drug dealer in Junction, Iowa—not much of a claim given the town’s size, but Joey makes a tidy profit until his body is found by two raccoon hunters. While most in Junction believe Joey’s death was unfortunate, they aren't surprised. When local no-account Zack Harmen “inherits” Joey’s illicit business, suspicion naturally falls on him. However, it’s also possible that a newcomer to the local drug trade named Eric Marquez took out Joey. Marquez has been running rings around the local law, leaving no trace of his dealings. Then one of the town’s deputies vanishes and a local priest dies under suspicious circumstances. Junction seems to be in the midst of a killing spree, and only the murderer knows the reason why. This tense, character-driven thriller explores just how far people can fall out in the boonies.
