Well it's officially live! Lorne rides again.

The headless body of a wealthy widow is discovered decomposing in Chelling Forest. Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins and her partner, DS Pete Childs are assigned to the case. A few days later another victim, this time a young girl, is discovered. Who could the killer be and what's the connection between the two victims?

Then after a third murder, the killer contacts Lorne with a grisly surprise. It looks like Lorne has a serial killer on her hands - and one that has become fixated on her. As she tries to solve the crimes, Lorne is also coping with a failing marriage and new, unsympathetic boss with whom she has a secret past. Then, as she begins to despair at the lack of clues, help arrives from an unlikely source.

  1. Best of luck with sales, Mel. Looks to be an interesting premise. If I ever get the chance to read (after all the editing I'm doing), I may very well have to give it a try.

  2. Thank you, I know where you're coming from! lol Good luck with the editing.
