MURDER IN MANHATTAN

by Jerrold Larssen

A killer is on the prowl in Manhattan. More than anything he likes to talk. Well, almost anything except to kill.

It’s a slow Monday afternoon at Manhattan’s Midtown North Precinct when the call comes in and Detective Devlin Stark is willing enough to be amused. For an hour he listens as the amiable caller describes in detail two murders he claims to have committed, one in 2012 the other in 2014.

When asked by Stark if he’s calling to confess, the man says, “No, Detective, I’m calling to say I’m just getting started.”

With that the caller offers Stark a Manhattan location where shortly after Stark and his partner, Reba McIntosh, arrive on scene to discover a third victim.

But are McIntosh and Stark dealing with a serial killer, a copycat or a manipulative and cunning adversary who only wants it to appear this way? Where in claiming credit for multiple murders he draws attention away from the one single homicide that truly matters?

But like any homicide investigator, Stark and McIntosh are willing to accept the Serial Killer theory: after all, a serial killer investigation is the Holy Grail of a policing career; book deals, guest appearances on Fox News and CNN, Dateline and Forty Eight Hours, maybe even a Netflix Original Series.

With his mobile phone ringing through the night with calls from The Chatterbox, the body count rising and the media, the Mayor and the Police Commissioner watching, Stark is drawn into a game of catch-me-if-you-can with a killer determined to engage in one final, deadly confrontation that could leave Stark, his partner, or both dead.



Death By Nail Gun (The Kim Murphy PI Series Book 2)

by Violet Ingram

PI Kim Murphy’s staycation is rudely interrupted by a dead body that refuses to stay putâ?¦

Too broke to go on a real vacation, Kim’s plans include napping, sunbathing, and eating lots of junk food while indulging in a few romance books. Her plans certainly do not include anything that has to do with a medical examinerâ?¦or so she thought.

When one of Kim’s besties discovers a body in the back yard, they follow procedure and call the authorities. But by the time police arrive, the cadaver is missing, making both Kim and her friend look like “overreacting, distraught females.”

When Kim’s on-again-off-again boyfriend, officer Grant Tompkins, arrests a suspect for the murder, it might just be the end of their sort-of relationshipâ?¦

Of course Kim wants the killer behind bars, but not if she’s sure Grant has arrested the wrong person. Desperate to find the real criminal, Kim ignores the lawâ??and her own common senseâ??to track down a calculating murderer whose new plans may include sending Kim on a permanent vacation.

If Kim isn’t careful, the next disappearing body may be her own…

Day after day in his endless cycle he followed the rules of his imprisonment. Playing nice with the others, talking to his doctor once a week. He ate the bland meals with his plastic spoon and took the medications to keep the visions at bay. But when he was alone in his room, his eyes burning against how bright it was, he felt the madness seeping back in.

The grief coursed through him as he stared out that singular window, waiting for the moment when he could re-join the world. The others laughed at him when he spoke of what he would do when he got out, but without that singular hope, he knew that he would fall into permanent darkness. He refused to accept that he was as far gone as the others believed.

So out the window he stared, like a gargoyle frozen in time. He bit his lips to try and restrain the screams building within him as his mind tore itself apart, in constant mental battle with himself.
