Enter the psyche of a serial killer, a desperate man trapped in a treacherous maze of murder, lies, love, and suspense.
The violent love story Justified Murder defines destiny – accepting that which is written – versus fighting for control of one’s life. It is the classic battle between good and evil, only the thin line separating them is not so distinct.
This thriller introduces David Hawthorne, a killer who must choose between true love and embracing the dark desires buried in his soul.
Raised by a zealot Catholic preacher, David is betrayed by a treacherous woman. After his release from a mental hospital for her killing, a chance encounter leads to murder. Once the flood gates are open, David is compelled to kill again.
David uses his dynamic personality as a TV reporter to manipulate viewers into feeling compassion for the killer, and his popularity soars. Unaware of his crimes, District Attorney Melanie Hunter begins a romantic relationship with David.
Investigating the murder case is a well-respected detective, Harold Thompson. As the cat and mouse game between them begins, the detective learns that he and David have much in common. Meanwhile, David struggles to keep his three lives separate: his peaceful life with Melanie, his dark life as a serial killer, and his glamorous life as a TV reporter.
Will David tame the monster within and live happily ever after with Melanie? Or will Harold bring the killer to justice?
