202

                                              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 on the property. Inside the dilapidated old house, items move about on their own accord. Noises come from empty rooms. She has a vivid, recurring dream of a woman running for her life. The wind rustling through the trees sounds like urgent, murmuring voices. When the cacophony dies down, one single word emerges: Madeline, Madeline, Madeline.

                                                        YOU CAN’T HIDE

The next door neighbor helping to restore the place doesn't believe anything bizarre is going on. He’s certain she’s jumping at shadows because the local kids called the house haunted. That is until he witnesses horrific violence that can’t be explained. After Maddy’s life is threatened not once, but twice, Doug  Lindstrom, vows there will not be a third. He’d rather die than live without her love.

                                                             THEY SEE ALL                

While searching for answers, Maddy uncovers astonishing secrets about her aunt's past. Finding more questions then answers, 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 might be her own.

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.

 ALL BOOKS IN THIS SERIES STAND ALONE. NO NEED TO READ IN ORDER. THANK YOU.

 

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. If you are sensitive or have a problem turning off the emotional side of your brain to view these studies in a clinical fashion, please skip the parts written in italics. I promise it won’t interfere with your enjoyment of the story. Thank you.

 

ALL THE BOOKS IN THIS SERIES STAND ALONE. NO NEED TO READ THEM IN ORDER.

 

 

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

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

DON’T ANSWER THE PHONE

Meagan McInnis is being psychologically tormented. The image of a pair of eyes staring back from a darkened abyss haunts her. Her dog barks incessantly, but no one’s there. 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, and he’s seen some pretty gruesome things. 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

Thomas is called to a crime scene in the wee hours of the morning. He’s supposed to pass off the case to focus solely on the Sandman. But soon discovers the cases are linked.  Better yet, that Meagan McInnis, is the key to discovering the serial killers 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 they must delve deep into her past to uncover just how she became the obsession of this sadistic killer 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.

 

 

 

 

                                                YOU CAN’T SCREAM

Somewhere in the vast Alaskan wilderness hides a psychotic fiend. His methods are unlike any other serial killer to date. He likes his women cold, frozen to be exact. Once finished with a victim, he displays her like a ghastly piece of art.

 Back in California, Fawn ‘Shadowhawk’ Quinn has a deranged stalker. Luckily her partner, Homicide Detective Jesse Thomas, and his lover, Meagan McInnis, have her back. But will that be enough against someone hellbent on getting revenge?

                                             YOU CAN’T RUN

Special Agent Annie Thomas is on leave from the FBI after the loss of her fiancé, Matt Locklear. She has spent the better part of a year in a one-room cabin deep in the woods. Lately she’s had the feeling of being watched.

                                            YOU CAN’T HIDE

Homicide Detective Stone Wooshkeetaan found his best friend’s mutilated body, an image he’ll never escape. For the last year he’s been walking around with a hole in his heart.

                                              YOU’RE FROZEN

The locals gather at Draper’s Pond. The air is filled with the sound of laughing children as they race around on the ice. Little do they know a dark cloud looms ahead. A skater’s mishap brings a blood curdling scream that silences the crowd. Directly beneath her is the body of a woman trapped under the ice; her mouth frozen in a scream.

                                                    HE WINS

Now women are showing up all over the Mat-Su Valley looking like horrific ice sculptures. Annie teams up with Stone to hunt this twisted killer in a state over twice the size of Texas and largely comprised of uninhabited wilderness. Will they be able to capture him before he finishes his sick game and disappears, only to start over somewhere else?

                                                        AGAIN
