A MACABRE MASTERPIECE PAINTED IN BLOOD
A STROKE OF THE HAND, OF KNIFE, OF PAINTBRUSH

Sarah Anne Matthews is just a normal girl with a 9-5 job and a roommate that is almost like a sister, except her roommate is blonde and she is dark-haired.

One winter day, she comes home early to catch a stranger in their house. She finds herself hiding, only letting herself out after she was sure the man has gone. What she finds in the upper bedrooms will change her life forever.

Det. Christopher “Kit” Sorenson and his team are after a serial killer who tortures, murders a string of dark-haired women, and paints the scene using the victim’s blood. He follows the trail of mayhem until he arrives at Sarah’s town. For the first time, the serial killer has made a mistake – he killed the wrong woman.

And he is here to make sure that when he comes back for the intended victim, he is waiting.

When Kit and Sarah meet each other, they feel a bond deeper than the circumstance that brought them together. The sexual tension is palpable, and as forceful as the lurking evil waiting for another chance at murder, so is lust waiting for just a chance to let loose and consume them both.

EXCERPT
When they got me down to the station, this man who looked like a Native American was standing there in the squad room with snow sticking to his hair. It was his brown skin and the long, jet-black hair that made him look like he had a background. He has a surprisingly handsome face, and his color made him look exotically beautiful. I could not believe at first that he was a detective. I thought he could be a model because he was also tall, reaching six feet easily, and the way he carried himself attracted attention from men and women alike.

But he was not smiling and his brown eyes were cold as they observed me silently. It looked like he just got out of the shower and was wearing two different boots on his feet.

I was talking to officer Timmons then. “He didn't feel like he meant any malice or wanted to do harm to anyone. I know how strange that sounds, but I can only tell you what I felt when I looked into his eyes.”

“So, you have attached yourself to him, and that you sympathize with him. Is that what I'm hearing from you, miss? Maybe you are part of this as well, and you stalked the target, and then called your partner to finish the job.”

I lifted my head, my tears still streaming down my cheek, with this red-hot rage building up inside me. If I could kill him with just my look, he would be dead at my feet with blood coming out of his ears.

“How dare you even suggest that I would have anything to do with this? I don't know who you are, but I don't like you. In fact, right now I really want to kick you in your face.

About the Author

Lily Green is 41, divorced, and lives in Pacific Heights, San Francisco. She has two sons—Michael, 22 and Todd, 18. Lily has a dark past—she was adopted as a child by a well-meaning, homey schoolteacher and her husband, a bartender. Her adopted father abused her as a child, and in her late teens, she decided she had had enough and reported the incident both to her mom, and the local police. Her mother, instead of coming to her aid, decided to evict her. Lily, therefore, had to move into the city and fend for herself, working odd jobs to put herself through college. She married Howard, a fellow student, and father to both her sons. They parted ways when Todd was 3. Michael is in medical school—an intern—with a pre-med degree in Psychiatry. Michael resides in L.A. Todd is a student at San Francisco University, taking up Dance as his major. Both Michael and Todd are single. Her former husband is Howard, head of an architecture firm. Though he and Lily are estranged, he helps put the kids through college. Lily herself was a dance choreographer—and now teaches Development of Dance Techniques and Dance Theory—part time. She is known to date men several years her junior, as she finds most men her age or older to be “too serious” and “boring." She has a healthy appetite for sex, but finds getting into a serious relationship for long periods “a waste of time." She feels she has yet to find a man her equal both intellectually and physically. She does not believe in “love”—she defines relationships as a meeting of minds and a consensual approval of helping the other grow. Lily is into organic food and is a health and exercise buff (though mostly incidental—the exercising helps “clear her mind”). She is into “centering” and yoga. She has yet to give up smoking, though. She loves to shop but within reason. Anything excessive and lavish has to be justified, she feels. Lily is deeply into social work (she is a member of the local LGBT group as a generous donor for free HIV testing drives, among other advocacies.). She is also an advocate for animal adoption. She describes herself as “a city girl with a small-town heart."
