Bones Beneath the Pale

Michael Rutherford has always been different. An orphan who never knew his family, he was mocked as a child for his odd looks. But after Michael sees a wealthy philanthropist on television who has the same strange features he does, Michael volunteers at the man’s charity organization to get close to him. This he would find was a mistake.

The volunteer job takes him to the deepest recesses of the Brazilian rainforest, where Michael makes a shocking discovery about a secret laboratory that may hold the truth of Michael’s mysterious past and his odd appearance.

A story of body horror and centuries-old secrets in the vein of H.P. Lovecraft, Bones Beneath the Pale is the first volume in the Belle City Chronicles series.
