Six teens murdered. A suspect behind bars. A desperate father. In a case this shadowy, the truth is easy to hide.
Psychiatrist Dr. Gwen Moore is an expert on killers. She’s spent a decade treating California’s most depraved predators and unlocking their motives—predators much like the notorious Bloody Heart serial killer, whose latest teenage victim escaped and then identified local high school teacher Randall Thompson as his captor. The case against Thompson as the Bloody Heart Killer is damning—and closed, as far as Gwen and the media are concerned. If not for one new development…
Defense attorney Robert Kavin is a still-traumatized father whose own son fell prey to the BH Killer. Convinced of Thompson’s innocence, he steps in to represent him. Now Robert wants Gwen to interview the accused, create a psych profile of the killer and his victims, and help clear his client’s name.
As Gwen and Robert grow closer and she dives deeper into the investigation, grave questions arise. So does Gwen’s suspicion that Robert is hiding something—and that he might not be the only one with a secret.
When a community is rocked by the horror of 6 teens gone missing and 5 brutally murdered… not just murdered but tortured…everyone is on edge. When the sixth victim returns home and identifies the kidnapper, it seems logical for the words “The End” to appear signifying that the story is over.
This story rapidly turns from good to OMG quickly as the plot unravels and readers learn just who is lying and who has secrets that will surface and change everything!
The people in charge of the investigation may not be telling the complete truth. Why would Robert, father of a murder victim and defense attorney, offer to defend the very person accused of being a serial killer… HIS SON’S killer? Why would he hire Gwen, psychiatrist, to profile the killer? Was this a deliberate choice? Is an innocent man sitting in jail?
No spoilers here but I will say this…nothing is what it seems, the details are horrifying, and the ending is completely shocking. In other words… it’s a must read!
