Killer Pursuit

Killer Pursuit

Book Two: Allison McNeil Series

USA Today Bestseller!

When a high-society call girl is murdered in her Georgetown home, investigators find two cameras hidden in the walls of her bedroom. One has its memory erased, presumably by the murderer. The second is connected to the Internet through an encrypted connection…and no-one knows who’s on the other end.

Special Agent Allison McNeil is asked by beleaguered FBI Director Clarence Mason to run an off-the-record investigation of the murder. The most direct path to apprehending the killer is to find the videos, but with rumors that the victim’s client list may have included Mason’s political enemies, Allison worries about the director’s motives. As she starts her investigation, she quickly discovers that she’s not the only one pursuing the videos. In fact, the most aggressive person racing against her might be the murderer himself.

The Torment Of Rachel Ames

The Torment Of Rachel Ames

A thriller horror novella

A Kindle Single

Suffering from writer’s block, novelist Rachel Ames escapes to a lake cabin to calm her mind and regain a sense of herself. The location is perfect. Isolated. Beautiful. Inspiring. It even comes with a good-looking landlord who shows an interest in her. But she can’t shake the sense that something terrible has followed her to the lake, something just beyond her consciousness, something out on the edge where the sounds of a raging fire and sirens linger whenever she slows down to listen.

How research works: my new thriller has a chase scene up into the North Tower of Notre Dame. I saw online that there was a gift shop at the top of the first set of stairs. In my current draft, one of my characters hides in the gift shop while the other keeps going up, drawing the bad guys his way. Once they pass, she goes back down, takes out one bad guy and gets away. It all works, but it's not terribly exciting. On the tour yesterday, I saw this cool stone staircase that was off limits. I asked the guy behind the counter what was up there. Once a bedroom, it now serves as a small office. I explained to him I was a writer creating a chase scene so I needed there to be a way out of the room. He thought about it and said there was a window that might work. He took my phone and took a pic of the room for me (there was a meeting going on) then came down and opened a little door in the side of the wall. We crawled through on our hands and knees and we're on the roof, looking at the path down out of the window, across this cool arched area and down the side of the building to the street far below. Not perfect, I need to ignore the screens on the window (or maybe have that on the floor after being pulled out, I'll figure that out later) but far better than anything I could have figured out via google. Thank you Luc Arrends for the assistance! ... See MoreSee Less

Janice CoomesThat place is amazing! What did it feel like in there? Did it smell musty or like a deep cave smells? I am just very curious about what you experienced in there. Wondering if it felt like stepping way back into ancient times. I'm not sure I would have what it takes to explore in there. I am really looking forward to your next book.2 days ago

How cool is this? Rabbit hole leads to 700 year old Knights Templar cave in England.

A farmer found a rabbit hole that led to an entrance to a mysterious cave network used by the Knights Templar 700 years ago. Would have been a perfect setting for a Jack Templar adventure!
