Murder just got personal
Detective Nick Cross is hard at work repairing burnt bridges incurred during a stormy first marriage when a murder happens.
“Only One Will Fall” is the cryptic message sent to the victim’s husband moments before the slaying, but nobody thinks much of it until an identical message is sent to the relative of a second victim. To Nick, it means one thing: Mount Pleasant has a serial killer on its hands.
With no motive and no connection found between the victims, the police are helpless to prevent the rampage from continuing. It doesn’t help that the Field Agent sent by the FBI clashes with Nick’s style in handling the investigation. But Nick isn’t done. He decides to take matters into his own hands, unwittingly setting himself up as the next target for a ruthless killer who can’t be stopped.

I’ve been a lover of mysteries for my entire life. Ever since a child, I’ve consumed detective stories, becoming enamored with the superstars of crime. I loved matching wits with Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Thomas Pitt, Lord Peter Wimsey, Richard Jury and Edward X Delaney. I was so inspired that I began trying to emulate my writing idol’s achievements by composing my own stories. However, life interfered with my plans, but not forever. I’m here and ready to return to my first love–murder.
