I’m pleased to tell you that my latest EJB Crime Thriller, A Killer’s Watch, is now live at Amazon and B&N.
As many of you know, I’ve written a thriller or two, but this one gave me the creeps throughout the entire process. The main reason for my heebie-jeebies is the fact that one aspect of this story could happen to any of us. If you have a laptop, desktop, or smart T.V. with a camera, your life could be an open book to anyone so inclined to spy. Apparently, it’s not difficult to break through most firewalls, hack into a private computer, and activate the camera. Will the light go on, so that you’re at least aware that you’re being watched? No.
Fortunately, a simple solution to this potential invasion of your privacy is to cover the camera with electrical tape, or something similar, when you’re not using it. It’s unfortunate that we must stoop to such measures, but until manufacturers build in a cover, along with the camera, it’s better to be safe than exposed.
Okay, my public service announcement is over. Here are the details of A Killer’s Watch.
Fifteen-year-old Shelby Torrent dreamed of becoming an actress. In the privacy of her bedroom, she enacted roles, performed musicals, and practiced her craft. Little did she know that someone was watching her every move. A killer, insidious as a spider, watched young Shelby through the lens of her laptop.
Finally, he killed.
Shelby was not his first victim, nor would she be his last.
Jeri Forbes and Ethan Barnes, of EJB Global, learned of Shelby’s killer through a program designed to spot kills similar to those of an old nemesis, Howard Anson. As one of Anson’s watchers, Graham Grant learned his trade from the best, and most evil, serial killer on the books. He took up the cause where Anson left off, streaming his kills live to an audience of paying aficionados.
With little to go on, tracking the killer is difficult, at best, as he chooses his victims from a three-state pool. Jeri and Ethan soon realize that he is targeting the same woman, over and over again. If only they knew her identity.
Dive deep into the mind, and heart, of a serial killer, obsessed with his past and the destruction of one he loves most.
Author’s Note: Readers who have enjoyed the SSCD Crime Thriller series are familiar with Anson. If you haven’t yet read Anson, be aware that several references are made to the story within this book. Specifically, the resolution of Anson’s reign is mentioned.
I hope that you enjoy the read!
