Sam Ripley is my alter ego. Guess where the name came from?
THE GIFT OF DEATH is Sam's first novel, hopefully the first in a series.
An ‘electrifying novel – pitch-perfect and
brutal … a twisted gem’ – Kate Miciak, crime editor at Bantam Delacorte USA.
A run of unspeakable crimes. A series of
grotesque presents. The legacy of a dead serial killer.
When former forensic artist Dr Kate Cramer
discovers a 15-month-old child floating in the sea outside her Malibu home she
is forced to revisit the past. A past that she thought she had left behind.
Seven years earlier she had been involved
in the hunt and capture of serial killer Bobby Gleason, who stalked his
victims, attacking and raping them in what the state prosecutor likened to a
travelling circus of torture. After Gleason committed suicide while in prison
everyone involved in the case thought they could get on with their lives -
until each of the key players finds that they are being targeted in a macabre fashion.
The book is 95,000 words long, but is so
full of suspenseful twists and turns that it reads like a dream – or your worst
nightmare. It is not for the squeamish or the faint of heart. Please download
the sample if you are in any doubt …
