About “The Carriage House”:

His latest novel is another thriller about an FBI criminal profiler who assists the police in going after a serial killer…  “Before He Kills Again”.

About “Before He Kills Again”:  (Taken from Amazon)

Before He Kills Again is my latest thriller novel. Based in Portland, Oregon, the protagonist is Veronica Vasquez, an FBI criminal psychologist and profiler who returns to her hometown to assist the police in tracking down a frighteningly serial killer. The “Rose Killer” kills beautiful women in pairs.

Soon he sets his sights on Veronica, even as she tries to get to him first, while also seeking to repair a damaged relationship with her estranged sister.

Further complicating Veronica’s life is a romance with the lead detective on the case, who has his own issues he’s dealing with.

For anyone who enjoys taut serial killer fiction that reflects the verisimilitude that can only come from a veteran criminologist with an expertise on serial murder, you are sure to find this a compelling read.

With numerous series on the go at the same time and hopping from one genera to another it is amazing the talent that flows from today’s guest.

As we here all the time on TV, radio and in the news papers identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America. Incidents have reached around 10 million cases a year in the US, every minute around 20 people fall victim of identity theft.

My guest on today’s A Book and a Chat is David Snow, whose book “Someone Has Taken My Place” shares with us a true international chase, investigation and capture of Insurance Fraudster who stole identities of deceased Irish babies.

David is the real-life investigator who handled the case on which SOMEONE HAS TAKEN MY PLACE is based: it involved Jeremy Cochran, a Texan who traveled from Dallas to Ireland intent on creating fresh identities from Irish babies who died around 1975, the time of his own birth.

The plot hit home hard in many ways for David having lost his own son Andrew in 2003 at the time of his birth.  This perhaps motivated David to get to the bottom of what at first glance looked like a simple insurance fraud but turned out much more.  David felt compelled to share the story, hoping that in some way to give justice to the parents whose children’s identities had been used for committing crime.

About “SOMEONE HAS TAKEN MY PLACE”:

Based on actual facts of the case, the novel follows Stone as he chases the Cowboy across Europe and the United States and–with the help of FBI, ex-KGB and CIA agents, the Secret Service, Interpol and the Irish police force–pieces together the Cowboy’s web of illegal aliases and criminal intent. Just how did a Texan travel to Ireland and obtain so many official Irish passports? 

What is the evil secret at the heart of the multiple identity thefts? 

Will Stone catch the Cowboy in time for the innocence to be restored to the children’s identities?

As David shared with us on the show, his book has already lead him to appearing on Ireland’s longest running chat show and won him many plaudits around the world.

It’s David’s hope that  “SOMEONE HAS TAKEN MY PLACE” will alert readers to the problems of insurance fraud and identity theft, and to educate them “that ripping off of insurance companies is a crime we all pay for and how law enforcement, working together, can stop it
