Can the paranormal be the key to catching a killer?
Alan Graubard's supernatural crime drama, The Astral Sacrifices©, foretells a new standard in suspense!
Does the future of a murder-torn city depend on the paranormal? Two visionaries join forces with cops in a desperate attempt to solve a series of unrelated killings in this innovative whodunit.
Welcome to the New York City tristate area where a series of unrelated violent deaths are beginning to mount up. But a body count is growing elsewhere too, as employees of animal shelters, zoos, and pet shops are being mercilessly killed. Are the murders connected? Robert Crowley, commander of the Violent Crimes Division, is determined to find out. But the kind of help he's going to need is anything but orthodox.
The FBIs are in Crowley's arsenal, but so are psychic Justin Fuller and his mysterious mentor, an astrologer, and an innovative computer database. The team suddenly begins to notice some extraordinary relationships between the crimes, and Graubard's story begins to twist and turn with lightning speed. Interspersed with the nail-biting suspense are gripping passages narrated by the killer himself. But even as this evildoer reveals his life story and his nefarious present-day activities, he keeps his identity secret.
Who is this deadly killer? Who and what is he really after? You may think you know the answer, but The Astral Sacrifices forms a puzzle-piece thriller, with the shocking solution not revealed until the final shattering pages. This is the first book of a brilliant new series, and waiting for the next installment is sure to be murder!

About the Author

Alan Graubard was born in Monticello, New York, on Christmas Day in 1941. Growing up in the 1950s fuelled his “showbiz” urges with Monticello’s proximity to New York City, enabling his introduction to the Broadway stage; the Golden Age of Television gave him a front-row seat to the wonders of live TV; the many hotels in the Monticello area allowed him to see the nation’s top entertainers perform.
He won a Dramatic Scholarship to Ithaca College and started his formal training in 1959. The next summer found him working with the famous playwright Edward Albee, on the touring production of The Zoo Story. The following summer he was the production stage manager for the touring company of The Fantasticks, the longest-running musical in the history of the theater. After a short stint on the staff of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, he went back to Ithaca College. But wanderlust set in, and he travelled Route 66 with a close friend before settling in Los Angeles.
He married in 1963 and entered the young world of data processing, leaving the world of “showbiz” to others. His family grew in the 1960s, with the addition of two wonderful daughters, Lori and Stephanie.
Alan has been in the information technology industry for the past fifty years but has never lost his writing and performing urges.
Alan moved to Melbourne, Australia, in 1986. In the mid-1990s, Alan decided to start writing and attempted to sell some TV scripts to the Australian networks. One of the scripts, The Psychic formed the basis for Alan’s book, The Astral Sacrifices. This manuscript laid dormant for a number of years excepting for some friends and family who read the first draft. Their positive comments persuaded Alan to pursue the publication of the book.
Alan returned to the United States in 2007 and is currently residing in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He is still in the IT industry.
