About The Hunting Ground A mild mid-winter day draws Chicago newspaper columnist Deuce Mora to a South Side nature preserve where she plans a simple outing to get some fresh air and exercise. But a shocking discovery hurls her into a personal and professional train wreck. Someone is kidnapping and murdering the city’s children. As the body count rises and the threat creeps in on Deuce, she finds herself in a quagmire of international intrigue. Nobody seems willing to help her uncover the conspiracy behind the horror.

One of the earliest life-changing decisions I made was at sixteen, during the height of the Vietnam War, when I decided to enlist in the Marine Corps. And when I look back and ask myself now about  what could have possibly motivated me to make that decision, I can see precisely the kinds of archetypal fantasy structures at work that I talk about in the book. I can still hear the small voice inside me at  that time, calling to me, telling me that something wasn’t quite right about what I was doing. This was the voice from the lost child. You may have heard your own lost child somewhere along the way. It’s comes as a faint intuition, perhaps more a feeling than a sound. It’s one of those things we tend to brush aside, tend to rationalize away. It calls out, asking that you turn toward it… especially during those times when the your defenses are most activated. As long as this voice goes un-heard, the un-seen hand of…
