Exclusive Excerpt


Leo jolted.

“What is it? What just happened?” Watterson asked.

“There was a huge crash and the woman stopped screaming,” Leo said, quaking suddenly. “I’m afraid.”

“You’re safe, you’re okay, Leo. That all happened a very long time ago. You have nothing to be afraid of.”

Leo nodded, regulating his breathing as he remembered his father coming out of the house. His shirt was stained. As he pictured it, he realized it was smeared with a wide swath of blood. Leo’s eyes flew open and he sat up.

“I’m done.”

“You’re safe, Leo. What do you see?” Watterson asked calmly.

Leo shook his head as he stood unsteadily. He looked over at Casey Watterson. “I’m done. It’s enough for today.”

Casey frowned but he stood up. “Okay.” When he reached out to touch Leo’s sleeve, Leo backed off, crossing his arms over his chest. Casey dropped his hand. “I think we made good progress. We might get more under deeper hypnosis, though.”

Not a fucking chance in the world . Leo shook his head. “That’s enough. Thank you,” he muttered. “I’m sorry.”

He rushed out of the office, blinking at the bright lights in the long hallway. Standing at the end of it was Max, like a beacon of safety. He walked toward him quickly. The urge to throw himself into his solid arms and let him pull him close was powerful. When he finally reached him, Max smiled, but then abruptly lost it as he got a look at his expression.

“What happened?” He took Leo’s shoulders and when Leo relaxed in his hold, tightened his grip. The tension slowly bled out of him. “Leo, what happened? Did it work? Do you remember anythin’?”

Leo sagged right there, wishing they were anywhere else besides this damned office with so many prying eyes, looking into his mind, and trying to pull memories out of it that might shed light on their case. It was futile. He just felt sick inside and knew he was useless to everyone on this case. Everything he did, seemed to make things worse. He just wanted it to be over.

“Leo?” Max prodded gently.

Leo stared at him, wishing he didn’t know what he knew but sure he understood it. “Yeah, I remembered things.”

“What, Leo?”

He stared at Max, looking between both eyes which were filled with a multitude of compassion. “Max, I think I have a brother.”


thousand vermillion stars audioFBI Files, Book 3

A copycat serial killer is driving their whole team crazy.

Dr. Leo Reeves has always considered himself a halfway decent criminal profiler. Some of his colleagues even call him brilliant. With this assignment, he sure as hell doesn’t feel that way. He’s been missing something at every turn. The case is dragging into its seventh month and every lead he and his team follow, takes them to a dead end…literally. Leo sure hasn’t come up with anything to move things along, as hard as he’s tried. They’re no closer to capturing their killer…even after following him all the way to Miami.

Special Agent Max Prince is worried.

The longer this case goes on, the farther down the rabbit hole, his partner and lover, Leo, seems to fall. To make matters worse, back home in Los Angeles, detectives Cassidy Ryan and Mike Williams have turned up a second graveyard filled with some surprising victims…victims the team know well. Worse yet, Miami has left them with even more questions. When a good cop is murdered, the whole case turns on its head. Everyone wants answers and their team doesn’t have any.

Something has to change.

Worst of all, the copycat hasn’t stopped killing, leaving strange clues behind, even inserting himself into the case. When one of their own is put in horrible danger, and DNA results reveal a shocking truth, things get even more complicated. No one likes taking risks, especially when they involve meeting the killer on his terms. But taking that risk, might be the only way to resolve this case. Whether it’s the desert graveyards of SoCal, the sexy hot nights of South Beach’s gay scene, or the sticky bayous of New Orleans, Max and Leo have vowed to end this monster once and for all…if he doesn’t end them first.
