Like A Suicide: The Wraith

by John J. Archer

After tracking down the perpetrator, James and confronting him, Wraith concludes that he is either a genius or a stupid thief who just happened to mess with the wrong man. Either way, Wraith promises himself to enjoy this kill.

Wraith concludes James must die but decides to take his time and find out if this is the guy that might provide the challenging kill he has been looking for all along. He has to do all this with Detective Sweeney, the local superstar detective hot on his trail.

As he gets ready to go for the kill Wraith can sense that something is wrong. It’s just that this time, the kill feels â??Like A Suicide’.

A MACABRE MASTERPIECE PAINTED IN BLOOD

A STROKE OF THE HAND, OF KNIFE, OF PAINTBRUSH

Sarah Anne Matthews is just a normal girl with a 9-5 job and a roommate that is almost like a sister, except her roommate is blonde and she is dark-haired.

One winter day, she comes home early to catch a stranger in their house. She finds herself hiding, only letting herself out after she was sure the man has gone. What she finds in the upper bedrooms will change her life forever.

Det. Christopher “Kit” Sorenson and his team are after a serial killer who tortures, murders a string of dark-haired women, and paints the scene using the victim’s blood. He follows the trail of mayhem until he arrives at Sarah’s town. For the first time, the serial killer has made a mistake – he killed the wrong woman.

And he is here to make sure that when he comes back for the intended victim, he is waiting.

When Kit and Sarah meet each other, they feel a bond deeper than the circumstance that brought them together. The sexual tension is palpable, and as forceful as the lurking evil waiting for another chance at murder, so is lust waiting for just a chance to let loose and consume them both.

EXCERPT

When they got me down to the station, this man who looked like a Native American was standing there in the squad room with snow sticking to his hair. It was his brown skin and the long, jet-black hair that made him look like he had a background. He has a surprisingly handsome face, and his color made him look exotically beautiful. I could not believe at first that he was a detective. I thought he could be a model because he was also tall, reaching six feet easily, and the way he carried himself attracted attention from men and women alike.

But he was not smiling and his brown eyes were cold as they observed me silently. It looked like he just got out of the shower and was wearing two different boots on his feet.

I was talking to officer Timmons then. “He didn’t feel like he meant any malice or wanted to do harm to anyone. I know how strange that sounds, but I can only tell you what I felt when I looked into his eyes.”

“So, you have attached yourself to him, and that you sympathize with him. Is that what I’m hearing from you, miss? Maybe you are part of this as well, and you stalked the target, and then called your partner to finish the job.”

I lifted my head, my tears still streaming down my cheek, with this red-hot rage building up inside me. If I could kill him with just my look, he would be dead at my feet with blood coming out of his ears.

“How dare you even suggest that I would have anything to do with this? I don’t know who you are, but I don’t like you. In fact, right now I really want to kick you in your face.
