THE FINAL SCREAM IS HOLLOW

When a dog appears with a severed hand in his mouth, local law enforcement searches the George Washington Jefferson National Forest for the rest of the body.  What they find is so shocking that the local sheriff calls in the FBI immediately.    HIS BURIAL GROUND HAS BEEN DESECRATED

Forensic Psychiatrist Wyatt Thomas has fled to the sleepy mountain town of Crescent Hollow to finish his latest book involving serial killers and the insanity plea.  As the foremost authority on the subject, he’s often asked to assist the FBI with their most difficult cases. He instructed his secretary to hold his calls as well as cut himself off from all forms of news.  All his attempts to hide fail miserably when he hears that multiple dismembered corpses were discovered in the vicinity. As more victims are unearthed there appears to be three separate MOs.  The mystery is more than he can resist.

HIS ANGER IS UNSURPASSED

Special Agents Annie Thomas and Blake Hayashi of the FBI’s Behavioral Analyst Unit have been sent to a small town in Virginia to aid local law enforcement with a disturbing case.  Either a deranged murderer has been active in the area for roughly fifty years, or three separate killers are using the same dumping ground.

SOMEONE MUST PAY

Homicide Detective Merrybell Montgomery left her career with the Philadelphia Police Department to move her ailing husband to his hometown. Now that he’s passed, she’s lost. Although romance was the last thing on her mind, she finds herself falling in love with the visiting author, Wyatt Thomas. Then her dream turns into a nightmare when she learns a deranged killer is stalking her.

NO ONE IS SAFE

That’s when Wyatt teams up with his sister, Annie, and her partner, Blake, to stop the most devious killer of his career, or die trying.

 

Authors Note: The main character in this book delves into the disturbed minds of some of the most horrendous killers of all time.

Book 6
A haunting scream floated on the breath of a hot summer breeze. The mournful cry echoed throughout the bayou while the willowy limbs of the Spanish moss swayed in its wake.

HE PROWLS THE CITY

Clarice Bordelon is a journalist at The Times-Picayune newspaper in New Orleans. When her sister goes missing no one will listen - not even her husband. An insensitive remark by a policeman prompts her to research missing women of a certain socioeconomic status and color. The results are staggering. The deeper she digs the more she realizes her city has a huge problem and it’s not new, it goes back years.

BY COVER OF NIGHT

Armed with this new information she tries in vain to convince the authorities to launch a search. Worse, she’s labeled a conspiracy theorist. Clarice fights back the only way she knows how, by writing a series of articles to share her newfound knowledge. In doing so she attracts the attention of the one person she’d warned the city about. Now that his work’s been revealed the killer is eager to share more with the author herself.

DON’T GET CAUGHT

Homicide Detective Jesse Thomas is in New Orleans to attend a conference. He’s brought Meagan McInnis with the intention of turning a business trip into a romantic holiday. Then fate intervenes. They meet up with his old friend, Andre Bordelon and his wife, Clarice. The women hit it off instantly and make plans for multiple excursions.

OUT ON THE STREET

The following evening Thomas runs into a man he’d met in San Diego during the SANDMAN investigation, Homicide Detective Beau Chase who’s recently moved back to NOLA. He’s landed a case involving a serial killer and asks Thomas to lend a hand.

IN THE DARK

Clarice shares with Meagan a grisly experience that happened recently. Then their private swamp tour takes a horrifying turn into a hellish nightmare. Not believing in coincidence, Detective Chase delves into the journalist’s past and finds she’s all but drawn a map for a psychotic lunatic to follow her every move.

ALONE

Now Thomas and Chase must race against time to catch the elusive killer who’s hidden in the shadows for decades.

Book 1

BEWARE THE SANDMAN-HE’LL PUT YOU TO SLEEP. . .FOREVER

A serial killer on the loose, a woman with a psychotic stalker and a homicide detective who must find the connection before it’s too late.

He collects women. Imprisons them. Plays with them. Tortures them. He gathers souvenirs. His trophies are many.

LOCK YOUR DOORS AND PULL THE SHADES

Meagan McInnis is being psychologically tormented. Her dog has become restless. He barks incessantly, but when peering out into the darkened abyss, there’s no one in sight. The image of a pair of eyes staring back from the pitch haunts her. The phone startles her awake, only dead air answers her plea. Until the night she stumbles upon a grisly display in her garden.

THE CALLER IS SILENT NO MORE

Seasoned, Homicide Detective, J.J. Thomas, is working his most horrific case to date, and he’s seen some pretty gruesome things in his time. The monster he’s hunting ranks up there with Ed Gein. He wouldn’t be surprised to find lampshades made out of human skin in the psycho’s living room.

THEY CALL HIM THE SANDMAN

With no one else available, Thomas is called out to a crime scene in the wee hours of the morning. He’s told to pass the case off as soon as possible, so he can focus on his own investigation. But that’s before he realizes the ghastly exhibit and his case are linked.  Better yet, that Meagan McInnis, is the key to discovering the Sandman’s true identity.

SWEET DREAMS

With his department grossly understaffed, only he and his partner, Shadowhawk, can see to Meagan’s safety. At the same time delve deep into her past to uncover just how she became the obsession of this sadistic killer before she becomes his next prize.

NO ONE WILL HEAR YOU SCREAM

 A psychotic killer terrorizing a small mountain town sets his sights on those hunting him.             

 Special Agent Cody Thomas, from the FBI’s Violent Crimes Unit in Los Angeles, decides to take a week off in the small mountain town of Big Bear. Do a little fishing, a little hiking.

 

HE'S WATCHING

 

Deputy Jilly Reid left the Central Homicide Unit of San Bernardino and moved up the mountain to her hometown to get away from death and the devastating things people do to one another. Handing out parking tickets all day is just fine with her.

 

 

No sooner does Cody hit the town when he runs into Jilly, a girl he knew in high school. But there's no time to reminisce, she's in a hurry. An incoherent call came into dispatch. A fisherman down in Hunters Cove is carrying on about finding dead women.  A lot of them.

 

HE'S WAITING

 

Cody joins Jilly on the call. What they find doesn’t belong in the sleepy little town. An underwater graveyard. A deranged killer used the lake as a dump site. Seven mutilated bodies. Chained by their feet to cinder blocks. Fish food.  Completely unrecognizable.  The only assumption is they’re women because of their long flowing tresses waving back and forth in the current.  Their distorted faces set in a silent scream for all eternity.

 

HE'S PISSED

 

The victims had obviously been in the water for some time, so naturally Cody and Jilly think the killer is long gone. Until he begins taunting them. He’s out there watching their every move and letting them know he could take them out whenever he wants. Then women begin disappearing at an alarming rate.

 

YOU'RE DEAD

 

Now they must stop this sadistic killer or die trying.

If she wants to work it she'll have to partner up with one of their own.                                         

HE WILL NEVER

Lorelei Hamilton finally conquered her numbing fear and left her abusive husband. She followed the instructions by the underground network to the letter.

Everything was running smoothly until she got in the wrong car.  By the time she realized her mistake it was too late. She’d been abducted by a sadistic fiend who made her husband's violent outbursts look like child's play.

   WHAT HE SEES WOULD SCARE YOU TO DEATH

Jon-Luc Boudreaux is in Paris hunting a serial killer. That's nothing new. Seeing the bloody victims in the way they were slain? Not new. But watching the gruesome murders through the killer’s eyes as if he’s committing them with his own hands? Now that’s something new entirely.

                            HE WILL FIND YOU

FBI Profiler, Jon-Luc Boudreaux, has a secret-he’s clairvoyant.  A psychic medium who can see, but not hear ghosts.  They communicate with him through visions he must decipher on his own. That's how he achieved the highest solve rate in the history of the FBI, a fact that did not bode well with his fellow colleagues. So after years of enduring questions, rumors, and innuendo, Jon-Luc has left the FBI.

                          WHEN YOU LEAST

While determining his next course of action, he heads to France to visit an old friend. The moment he arrives, he's asked to assist with a case. It’s Fashion Week in Paris and the grisly bodies of mutilated models are popping up all over the city.

                                   EXPECT IT

After she's blacklisted by the fashion industry in New York, Angela Henderson moves to Paris to try her luck. Designing clothes is in her blood and she'll stop at nothing to realize her dream. The last thing she counted on was becoming the target of a psychotic killer.

 Now Jon-Luc is on the hunt for the most diabolical killer he's ever encountered and Angie's next on his list. Can he stop him in time?
