Seventeen-year-old Trais Johnson (a sexually dangerous person) is dead. He was beaten to death in the middle of the afternoon at a bus stop on Chicago's west side. The news of Trais's death and the awful crime that led to it makes national headlines. Hundreds of miles south of where Trais had lain dead on a street corner, Christian Mental Health Counselor Oakland McCall reads the news. He takes one look at the young man's face and immediately Trais's past becomes his future. While pondering the details of the case, Oakland makes discoveries and connections that involve his past. Fueled by the unexpected recall of repressed childhood memories, Oakland embarks on a psychological journey and supernatural quest to discover the history of Trais's transgressions and while doing so uncovers the darkness of his own life. The narrative of Traces ascends to its spiritual crescendo when Oakland and a small group of believers identify and confront the demonic forces that plagued Trais, his family, and their community. Traces is a Christian horror novella about the dangers of unresolved sexual abuse. This creative work examines sexual trauma, investigates its spiritual strongholds, and challenges those who struggle with such trauma (directly or indirectly) to cast aside thoughts that support an "I'm unhealable" belief.
