The method of operation (MO), of this killer is complex and gruesome. All of his victims are women between the ages of twenty and thirty and they are all attractive brunettes, either artists or patrons of the arts in and around the Washington, D.C. area, and their bodies are found in secluded areas in the counties surrounding Washington, D.C. In all the cases, the women are abducted and taken somewhere to be raped and tortured, later taken to the place of execution where, in a satanic ritual, they are sodomized and then crucified upside-down, and then killed by an arrow through the heart. The killings had begun thirteen years ago and then suddenly stopped with the fourth victim. After an apparent long cooling-off period of eleven years, the killings begin again two years ago and the F.B.I. task force was augmented. Special Agent Adrian DeWinter, sixty-two, and the most experienced and successful agent in the field is appointed Lead-Investigator, and special agent Vivian Dubary, twenty-nine, is made Co-Investigator. A new murder, with the victim discovered in Rock Creek Park, in Washington, D.C., yields only moderate leads. The psychotic killer is meticulous, but is partially identified by a family of hikers. Vivian goes undercover as an artist at the popular Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria hoping to attract the murderer, while Adrian, with a close-nit team, investigates the Satanic Church, leading to an apparent dead end. The (UNSUB) unknown subject, is cornered in two shoot-outs with police and, on both occasions he kills them all with a powerful hunting rifle, no witnesses, but the task force is slowly closing in. In the meantime, Adrian is contacted by the Society for Paranormal Analysis and is informed that a four-year old girl, Becky Williams, may be a genuine case of past-life memories, a reincarnation of Cameron Summers, the fourth victim thirteen years ago. As Adrian explores this direction on his own, Becky reveals vital information leading to the identification of the murderer. Combined with Vivians undercover operations, the investigators successfully identify the killer. But without solid evidence they have to resort to a dangerous trap which leads to an exciting violent end. Filled with horrible serial murders; police shoot-outs, factually based F.B.I. investigation methods, a delving into the world of art, Satanism, and a case of genuine reincarnation, Satans Arrow is a paranormal thriller with unique twists and turns, entry into the dark dimensions of a psychotic mind, and an interesting surprise ending.

About the author

With a strong, unique, yet sensitive voice, Richard Webb brings to life the intricate and accurately detailed story of an investigation of a brutal serial killer in his novel Satan’s Arrow. Author of the bestselling novel America’s Most Dangerous, the science fiction classic Mantis, and the cult classic Cotton Girls, Richard chose the vocation of a full-time novelist fifteen years ago after a twenty-five-year career as an independent commercial property and casualty insurance agent and president of Atkinson & Webb in Fairfax, Virginia. Yet he has always been a writer—first as a reporter during college with the Mercury Newspaper in Richmond and later as a regular contributor to Action Magazine in Washington DC. He has a degree in history and an MBA. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia, where his vocation keeps him at his desk for twelve hours a day. Satan’s Arrow is his second published mystery-thriller about a serial killer. His novel combines deep and thorough research for accuracy and the development of complex true-to-life characters with a dramatic, thrilling plot. Satan’s Arrow explores the emotional stress on serial killer hunters and the dark and gruesome character of a full-blown psychopath yet has an unusual paranormal twist—the reincarnation of the killer’s fourth victim from eleven years ago, the four-year-old Becky who is beginning to have past life memories. Richard grew up in Arlington, Virginia, where he was always the editor of the school newspapers and often editor of the school yearbooks too. He has written twelve novels and, as a university-trained historian, is currently working on a historical novel. His next publication will be Blueprint for Terror, an exciting atomic thriller based on the real and terrifying possibility of a terrorist obtaining nuclear material for a bomb.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER •  Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, “one of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes” (The Washington Post).

BONUS: Includes a sneak peek of Lee Child’s new novel, Past Tense.

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.
