"I would recommend this book to anyone who likes James Patterson or books like his. I can't wait for the next book to come out."

--Sandra Labella, Amazon reviewer



Fans of Lee Child, James Patterson and Dean Koontz will love this
exciting mystery thriller from New York Times bestselling author Aaron
Patterson as intrigue and conspiracy drips off each page.



*Note: This is a fun and sort of silly story. It is not for
everyone, but if you want a fun short story to pass some time you will
like The Craigslist Killer.



I dare you!



Three friends make a bet that turns out to be deadly.

Online dating is not the norm, but for Bill, it is a way to make
some quick cash. Take a girl out; get a second date and a kiss
goodnight—nothing to it. However, some hearts should not be broken, some
women should be left alone, and some dares should be passed up.



The Craigslist Killer is a Digital Short from the mind of
bestselling author Aaron Patterson. Digital Shorts are perfect for the
quick read on a bus ride home or if you just are bored to tears. Aaron
lives in Boise Idaho and is the author of the WJA series as well as
Airel, a teen thriller.

He is never bored.

the WJA Series) and IN YOUR DREAM (Book 3 in the WJA Series). Aaron is
