BEWARE THE SANDMAN-HE’LL PUT YOU TO SLEEP. . .FOREVER
He collects women. Imprisons them. Plays with them. Tortures them. Then gathers souvenirs. His trophies are many.
DON’T ANSWER THE PHONE
The image of a pair of eyes staring back from a darkened abyss haunts Meagan McInnis. She’s become the victim of a vicious stalker playing psychological games. Her dog barks, but when she looks out, no one’s there. Time and time again, the phone startles her awake, but only dead air answers her plea.
Until the night she stumbles upon a grisly display in her garden.
THE CALLER IS SILENT NO MORE
Homicide Detective, J.J. Thomas, is working his most horrific case to date. The monster he’s hunting ranks up there with Ed Gein. He wouldn’t be surprised to find furniture made out of human skin in the psycho’s living room.
THEY CALL HIM THE SANDMAN
Thomas is called to a crime scene. The original plan is for him to pass off the investigation immediately to focus on The Sandman. That is until he learns the cases are linked. Better yet, the witness is the key to discovering The Sandman’s true identity.
With his department grossly understaffed, only he and his partner, Shadowhawk, are able to guard Meagan. At the same time they must delve deep into her past to uncover why this twisted killer is obsessed with her before she becomes his next prize.
NOTE: While reading this book, please keep in mind that the original manuscript was written when DNA technology was not as advanced as it is today and people weren’t glued to their cell phones like a lifeline. Thank you.

Cody joins Jilly at the scene. What they find doesn’t belong in the sleepy little town. An underwater grave filled with the mutilated bodies of several women. Chained by their ankles to cinder blocks. Their long flowing tresses waving back and forth with the current. Their distorted faces crying out in a silent scream for all eternity. A serial killer has been using the lake as his own personal dumping ground.
Due to the advanced decomp of the deceased; Cody and Jilly know the victims have been in the water a long time. Naturally they assume the killer has moved on. Until someone starts taunting them with psychological games. Then women begin disappearing at an alarming rate. Together they must stop this twisted killer or die trying.

Alex has been staying in Boston for the last few weeks while her adoptive mother heals from a stint in the hospital. She’s reconnected with the family, and with her childhood crush, Shane Donovan. There’s nothing like being home for the holidays. Especially when your family runs the Irish mob. What starts out as a pleasant Thanksgiving weekend turns into a blood bath when the Murphy estate is hit by a rival hell-bent on taking control of the organization. So what’s the plan for Christmas?
The only man she’s ever loved, Shane Donovan, is going through a nasty custody battle and needs her help. Whether he knows it or not. Alex is certain that his soon to be ex-wife has skeletons in her closet and is on a mission to unearth them. Each secret she uncovers is darker than the last until the investigation comes to a grinding halt when Alex starts dodging bullets.
Assassins are crawling out of the woodwork like cockroaches to get her, but just as quickly, they’re murdered. The signature is familiar. It belongs to a maniacal psychopath known as The Shredder. The name alone evokes horror in even the most hardened criminals. He doesn’t simply take life. Instead he savors each and every drop of blood he elicits from his prey until they beg for death. For him, that’s when the real fun begins.
UNLESS SHE KILLS HIM FIRST
When Alex becomes The Shredder’s next plaything, everyone she loves scrambles to find her, but no one is more driven than Shane Donovan. He’d rather die than let anyone harm a single hair on her head. Now the clock is ticking. Will Shane find Alex in time?
After graduating from The Farm in Langley, Virginia, she’s banished from the only family she’d ever known. Heartbroken and alone, Alex settled in Paris and threw herself into her work by taking every operation the CIA offered, as well as volunteering for those no one else would. In doing so she’s made herself the most valuable female spy at The Company.
Through the years, she’s built quite the reputation. The chatter throughout the underworld is ‘Kill the Griffin,’ but as a master of disguise, no one truly knows what she looks like. Not even her lovers.
Out of nowhere she gets a call to return home. Alex jumps on the next flight to the States where she learns that her adoptive family is in trouble. The Murphy clan is involved in organized crime and Margaret Murphy is the head of Boston’s Irish Mob. When she is rushed to the hospital word spreads that her life is hanging in the balance. Someone has decided that he will be the next crime boss and is willing to murder every last Murphy to make that happen.
Deception has always been a major part of Alex’s life and returning home means facing the biggest deception of all, the one truth she’s hidden even from herself: her love for Shane Donovan - the only man oblivious to her existence. The real reason she has forsaken romance her entire adult life.
SHE’S THE GRIFFIN
Now Alex has joined her family in taking down the enemy. The only question is, how many will die in the process?
