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.
