A Guilty Mind (Published September 2012)
George Vandenberg is a broken man with a volatile temper, haunted by the memory of the young woman he once loved and “accidentally” killed. Wrestling with the guilt and pushed by his psychiatrist to confess the circumstances of her death, he teeters on the edge of a nervous breakdown. The past collides with the present when the doctor turns up dead, brutally stabbed to death in his office. Stunned and confused, George emerges as the primary suspect even as he becomes a target himself. To prove his innocence, George must face the police, his manipulative wife, and the past he’s been unable to forget. When the truth is finally divulged, no one, including George, is prepared for the collateral damage or the shocking identity of the killer.
A Guilty Mind is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other popular book sites.
Stay of Execution (Coming in late 2013) marks the return of Detective Michael Cancini.
Little Springs, Virginia is the kind of small college town that families can appreciate. Just the kind of place where everyone knows everyone else and violent crime is nonexistent – that is – until a series of rapes and murders at the college terrorizes the town and the local residents. But when Leo Spradlin is arrested, convicted, and placed on death row, the assaults and murders come to an abrupt halt. Now, two decades later, the “Co-Ed Killer” is granted a stay of execution and freed, suddenly declared innocent based on new and unshakable DNA evidence. But when the first body is discovered, a new hysteria strikes Little Springs. Can Detective Cancini, the man who wrongly arrested Spradlin the first time, find the killer or killers, both present and past?
