What do you do when the serial killers aim for you next? Robert Schwimer digs up the past, exhumes the dead, and turns the suspects against each other.
A murder thriller with a psychotic twist; a sociopathic killer has a list of sociopathic teenagers and young criminals; kids who are burning hay fields, shooting cattle, tagging businesses with graffitte, and drowning dogs. The killer or killers are exacting their own permanent justice before the police even know the felons in training even exist by staging the murders to appear as a railroad accident, accidental deaths, runaways and drug overdoses.
Other works by Richard Howes: Praise for Julie Rayzor; “Crisp, fast-paced action novel... Writing style is very impressive... usually found in male adventures, yet his heroine is a woman in love... he pulls off the balancing act between realistic feminine energy and highly effective tough combat... Successfully blends all three genres: sci-fi, a love story, and a war story, and it works on all three levels... Great dialogue in this entertaining novel... Elmore Leonard type: short, character-revealing, and advancing the story conflict. And conflict is everywhere... I will not give away any secrets in the plot... I won’t tell you about the train scenes, wow, you’ll have to discover those yourself. I will say that the love story kicks in like an afterburner...” says John Hill, author and screenwriter of "Quigley Down Under", "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (uncredited), "LA Law" and "Quantum Leap".
A murder staged as a railroad accident soon leads Acting-Sheriff Robert Schwimer to the cold-case shotgun death of a sociopath teenager. Using foensics and the modern investigative techniques of his CSI team, Bob is soon investigating a series of accidents, runaway-teens and potential kidnappings, the disappearance of a prostitute and a serial arsonist, and exhuming the grave of a long dead rape suspect. Between the current sheriff’s corruption scandal, the Massachusetts State Coroner fighting with the Plymouth County Medical Examiner for control of the autopsy, plus too many suspects, Bob is racing across the Massachusetts South Shore to stop the serial killers before they stop him.
