A GUILTY MIND is the first in a series of psychological mysteries featuring Detective Michael Cancini to be published by Witness Impulse, an imprint of HarperCollins. A GUILTY MIND is the story of one man’s struggle to find truth and redemption after losing everyone and everything he’s ever loved. It is also a story about choices, secrets, and the deadly consequences of keeping those secrets.
Accused of murdering his psychiatrist, a broken man must face his horrific past in order to protect his future.
George Vandenberg is a drunk with a volatile temper, haunted by the memory of the young woman he once loved and tragically lost. Wrestling with the guilt and pushed by his psychiatrist to confess his role in her death, he teeters on the edge of a nervous breakdown, blacking out drunk more often than not.
But when his doctor turns up dead, brutally stabbed to death in his office, George has no where left to turn. Stunned and confused, George emerges as the primary suspect in an investigation led by Detective Mike Cancini, a D.C. cop who knows all too well how far a man can go when he’s pushed.
To prove his innocence, George must face the police, his manipulative wife, and the shell of a man he’s become. But as much as George wants to forget his history, the past is not done with him…

More Praise for A GUILTY MIND:
“It kept me on my toes the whole time and I found myself unable to put it down…kept telling myself ‘Just one more chapter!’ I equate it to Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, but an easier, more intriguing read.” Laura Bell
“A Guilty Mind is every murder mystery reader’s delight. The book’s subtle foreshadowing brings out the detective in ALL of us. But read carefully because Kellie Larsen Murphy can dish out the Red herrings as well as Agatha Christie.” M.C.V. Egan, Author of THE BRIDGE OF DEATHS
“At various junctures, I thought I had this mystery figured out only to be blown away by the ending. For those with an affinity for the Richmond-DC corridor, so much the better… Read it, enjoy it, tell a friend.” Chris G.
