"Dear Violet, I am about to die." Thus begins a series of letters to noted Palm Beach astrologist Violet Day, self-written epitaphs from elderly women later found brutally murdered.
As the letters and murders make headlines, Violet's daughter Lorraine Day contacts her old friend, former cop Ken Blackburn. As a detective on the Dallas force, Blackburn developed an uncanny instinct for tracking down serial killers by predicting when they would strike again -- until that meeting in an alley with one deranged man who had eluded him for months, a meeting that proved fatal to the killer and forced Blackburn's suspension from the force.
So convinced are Lorraine and Ken that they are dealing with a man who fits the profile of a serial killer, Ken announces on a local talk show that he knows the killer's identity. And then they wait, hoping against hope that the killer falters and exposes himself before he kills again – because this time his target is the Day family itself.
With a climax that will leave readers white-knuckled, C. Terry Cline Jr. once again proves himself a master of psychological suspense.

About the Author
Writing was an early interest, and he was selling articles on nature and short stories by age seventeen. As an adult, and creator of his own advertising and public relations business, Terry once trained a chimpanzee to bowl – a unique way to draw crowds to newly opened bowling alleys. He traveled the U.S. with Judy the “Chimpion” Bowler, appearing on every major TV outlet. The outgrowth of working with a chimp was a magazine, Land Alive, and an educational program on animals offered to schools.
At age 37, Terry sold his business to concentrate on writing novels. The first of his ten novels of psychological suspense sold after a three year effort. Cline was called a “master of suspense” by more than one reviewer. He finished his last work, The Cordoba Connection, a few months before suffering a stroke, which resulted in his death in 2013.
C. Terry Cline’s wife of thirty-four years, author Judith Richards, collaborated with him in the writing of all his works.
