Book 1

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. 

                                                     SWEET DREAMS

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.

NO ONE WILL HEAR YOU SCREAM

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

Special Agent Cody Thomas, from the FBI’s Violent Crimes Unit in Los Angeles, takes a week off to do a little fishing, maybe a bit of hiking, in Big Bear.

 Meagan McInnis and Jesse Thomas join Cody at the family cabin, but their vacation is cut short when Meagan’s sister, Bridgett, goes missing.

                                               HE'S WATCHING

Deputy Jilly Reid left the Central Homicide Unit of San Bernardino and moved up the mountain to get away from death. Handing out parking tickets and dealing with noise complaints is just fine with her.

                                                   HE'S WAITING

No sooner does Cody hit town when he runs into Jilly and sparks fly, but there's no time waste.  An incoherent call just came into dispatch. A fisherman down in Hunters Cove is carrying on about finding dead bodies. Lots of them.                

                                                     HE'S PISSED

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.

                                                       YOU'RE DEAD

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.

                                     EVIL DOES EXIST

An abandoned house, a serial killer, and a victim reaching out from the grave. A woman races against time to unearth deeply buried secrets before she becomes a ghost herself.

                                       YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Madeline Anderson goes to Isabelle Island, Washington, to sell a family home abandoned over forty years before. Strange things occur the moment she arrives, items move about on their own accord. Noises come from empty rooms. She has a recurring dream of a woman running for her life. But most disturbing is that the wind rustling through the trees sounds like urgent cries. When the cacophony dies down, one single word emerges:                                                                                                                                                                                            Madeline, Madeline, Madeline.

                                      YOU CAN’T HIDE

The man helping her with the renovations, Doug Lindstrom, is certain she’s jumping at shadows because the local kids called the house haunted. That is until he witnesses horrifying events that even he can’t explain. After Maddy’s life is threatened not once, but twice, Doug vows there won’t be a third. He’d rather die saving Maddy than live without her.

                                          THEY SEE ALL                

While searching for answers, Maddy uncovers dark family secrets that only lead to more questions. She digs deeper until she stumbles across evidence of an old cold case involving a serial killer named The Seaside Strangler.

Now Maddy must unmask a killer. The life she saves just might be her own.

 SOMETHING OLD…

Anthony Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave and chief superintendent for New Scotland Yard, will marry Kate Wakefield in three weeks. It’s inevitable–the invitations are out, the flowers are ordered, the cake is chosen. But murder waits for no man, and no wedding.

 SOMETHING NEW…

In London’s prestigious West End, a disgraced CEO has been murdered at Hotel Nonpareil, an exclusive destination. No one, it seems, liked Michael Martin Hughes. Not his estranged wife, Thora, or his defiant son, Griffin. Not Hotel Nonpareil’s manager, its head of security, or perhaps even the other two women in Hughes’s life: his future bride, Arianna, or his secret girlfriend, Riley. Still more ominously, before Hughes died, he incurred the wrath of a potentially more unforgiving foe: Sir Duncan Godington, longtime nemesis of both CS Hetheridge and DS Deepal “Paul” Bhar.

SOMETHING BORROWED…

For the first time, CS Hetheridge, Kate and Bhar find themselves under tremendous pressure to uncover the killer in the shortest time frame ever. Has Scotland Yard, not to mention Downing Street, lost confidence in Hetheridge? Will the murder conviction rest on hard forensic evidence, a mountain of circumstantial details, or an impulsive theft?

Return to the world of Ice Blue and Blue Murder in Something Blue, the third mystery in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series.

The author would like to thank all her readers for their loyalty, patience, and kind words. The two questions new readers always ask are, "Will there be more Hetheridge--'Blue'--books?" and "What else have you written?"

Regarding question one, will there be more Lord & Lady Hetheridge ("Blue") books, the answer is yes. When asked when she plans to end the series, she replied, "Never." She is already at work on book #5, Blue Blooded.

Regarding question two, what else has she written, please try the Dr. Benjamin Bones cozy mystery series. Set in wartime England beginning in September 1939, this nostalgic, romantic series follows the amateur sleuthing of Dr. Bones, a native Londoner, in his adopted Cornish village, Birdswing. Book #1, Marriage Can Be Murder, and book #2, Divorce Can Be Deadly, are available now. Also available is Dr. Bones and the Christmas Wish, a charming novella about love lost and love found.

EACH SCREAM COULD BE YOUR LAST

He kidnaps them, punishes them, and sends them to Hell. Then he displays his victims in a way that tells the world they are sinners.

 Texas Ranger William Thomas is called to a gruesome crime scene where the body of a mutilated woman has been found displayed in a horrifying manner. No sooner does he catch the case when the FBI swoops in to steal it.

 ONCE HE HAS YOU

 Special Agent Savannah St. Germaine is working a case in Louisiana where a killer has been posing his victims in a macabre fashion. When a similar MO pops up in Texas she’s certain it's the same monster. She heads to Austin to investigate further. Her suspicions are confirmed, but the powers that be aren't willing to hand over the case. If she wants to work it she'll have to partner up with one of their own. 

 Special Agent Cody Thomas of the VCU in Los Angeles finally has a weekend alone with Jilly Reid. That is until he gets a call from the San Diego office of the FBI. It seems that a person of interest he flagged on one of his cases is involved with an investigation of theirs. He has no choice but to drop Jilly off at his brother’s home in Laguna Beach to follow up.                                

 HE WILL NEVER

 Lorelei Hamilton has finally left her abusive husband. She’s followed her instructions to the letter. Ditch her car. Check. Destroy her cell phone. Check. Leave behind anything that could identify her. Check. Her journey is handled by a different driver at each checkpoint. That way no one knows her final destination. Plausible deniability is a must in case a driver is compromised.

 LET YOU GO

 Everything ran smoothly until she got into the wrong car.  By the time she realized her mistake it was too late. She’s now at the mercy of a lunatic who makes her husband's violent outbursts look like child's play.                                     

 ALIVE

 Together Will and Savannah hunt for the most prolific serial killer the South has ever known. Can they catch the beast before he claims his next victim?

                                      EVIL HAS A FACE

The children of New Orleans are disappearing one by one. No bodies have been found. No ransom demands made. Poor or Rich. Black or White. Boy or Girl. The kidnapper does not play favorites.                   

                                               PRAY

Nineteen year-old Jon-Luc Boudreaux is trying to manage his gift. He’s a psychic medium. In other words, he sees the dead. They appear to him as living, breathing people. At times it’s hard to know the difference. One night he is visited by the ghost of a young girl named Charlotte. Her message is simple: Save the children.

                                           THAT EVIL

Jon-Luc has no idea how to do that. He’s not a cop. He knows nothing about finding missing kids. He tries to ignore her, but Charlotte won’t leave him alone until he promises to help. Since her visits started, he’s had some very disturbing visions. When the signs begin to point toward Voodoo, he has no choice but to find an expert.

                                          DOES NOT

Celestine Glapion is a Voodoo Priestess and a descendant of the great Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau. The minute Jon-Luc walks into her family’s shop, she remembers him, but he has no memory of her. So when Mama Arelia tells her she must help with this crisis, she’s reluctant to work side-by-side with Jon-Luc. But she’ll do anything for the sake of those innocent lives.

                                           FIND YOU

Their journey takes them to the underbelly of New Orleans where dark magic lives. Jon-Luc escapes death not once, but twice, and still he pushes on. Knowing time is running out, the kidnapper speeds up the schedule. Now the children’s lives hang in the balance and only Jon-Luc holds the key to their survival. Can they rescue them in time?

                  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 eyes of the killer as if he’s committing these atrocities himself? Now that’s something new entirely.

                                                      THE KILLER

 FBI Profiler, Jon-Luc Boudreaux, has a secret-he sees dead people.  That's how he achieved the highest solve rate in the history of the FBI, a fact that did not bode well with his peers. So after years of enduring questions, rumors, and innuendo, Jon-Luc left the FBI.

                                                         IS CLOSER

 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.

                                                          THAN YOU

 After she's blacklisted by the fashion industry in New York, Angela Henderson gets a job in Paris. Designing clothes is in her blood and she'll stop at nothing to realize her dream. The last thing she imagined was becoming the target of a deranged killer.

 THINK

 Now Jon-Luc is on the hunt for the most diabolical killer he's ever hunted and Angie is next on his list. Will he catch this monster in time to save the woman he loves?
