About The Snare by Award-Winning Author, Charles Besondy

The Deceiver’s Plan is Working. Is it Too Late for Charley Austin and the world?”

In the small coastal town of Reef Bay, Washington, Charley Austin is graduating from high school.

He has no way of knowing that his life will be hell for the next 9 months because his view of the world and faith will be turned upside down.

All because he is a pet project of Phobley, whose goal is to destroy the boy – not to kill him physically – but to destroy his faith. And for that purpose, Phobley has a sinister and seductive plan.

Can three strangers and a visit to the lighthouse reveal to Charley a purpose that saves him and gives hope to a shattered world?

The Snare is classic Besondy – a vivid, suspenseful story with an inspirational ending.

It’s 2038 in Reef Bay, but the story reads like today’s evening news, as Charley, made bitter by tragedy, becomes enchanted by a woman, and is swept up in a political movement that threatens his very freedom.

The Snare is Book Three in The Lighthouse series by multi-award-winning author, Charles Besondy. It was written to be enjoyed fully without reading the two preceding novels, The Hidden Saboteur and The Chase.

The story takes place between June 2038 and December 2039 (with one flash back to 1947). The action occurs in western Washington and Oregon (with a few detours to the foothills outside Roswell, New Mexico).
