Blood Sportby Michael Newton
“The Reaper pauses, almost finished, studying his hands. Blood glistens, ruby bright on rubber fingers, fading into darker, rusty stains above his wrists…. The ritual is nearly finished. One more demonstration and the Reaper will be free to put this now silent house behind him. It would not be fair to leave the woman unfulfilled, unchastened. He has dealt with all the others, saving her—the best—for last.”
Los Angeles is city primeval, home base for the sociopathic elite. Charles Manson. The Hillside Strangler. And now—the Reaper. He hunts at night terrorizing whole families at gunpoint, mutilating and finally slaughtering them. Dozens of victims. No survivors. No Clues.
Special Agents Joe Flynn and Martin Tanner, are highly trained members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program. But the Reaper never leaves a trace. Flynn and Tanner can do nothing except pace in the shadows of the sleeping city waiting for the Reaper to strike again.
The case files of Special Agents Flynn and Tanner are a scorching record of brutal crime. Their Los Angeles is an urban nightmare ruled by psychotic lords of violence. But VICAP agents are tough and resourceful—and they never give up.
VICAP #1 of a series of nine
Thought this series is fiction, VICAP is a real organization initially conceived in the late 1960s when the crimes of the Boston Strangler, Charles Manson, and other “motiveless” killers began to make national headlines.
