It takes a true artist to pursue his victims in the art of seduction, and Stowy Jenkins is no exception, especially with blood as his medium.
Stowy Jenkins, aka, the Snowman, is a true artist. His muse, Gigi, is the ultimate inspiration for his painting. Her rejection inspires him to use a very unusual medium…blood.
While art may be his passion, the taste for blood is his obsession, and multiple murders, the result.
Rookie, Detective Steven Quaid, is no fan of the Snowman’s murderous exhibitions. A twisted and deadly relationship bond the two men and neither knows who will come out of it alive.
A heavy snow is falling, exciting his murderous passion. With trembling fingers, Stone prepares for his greatest work of art. He tears open a package of duct tape, caressing the dull, gray roll before placing it onto the clean, white towels. A leather sports bag lies open. “Just a few more necessary items,” he mutters as he steps over to a rack on the wall.
After selecting three razor sharp knives, he unlocks the closet door. He gathers three syringes, and a vial of anesthetic, carefully wrapping them in a soft cloth. He places each one into the inside pocket of the bag.
A coil of twisted rope is snatched from the floor. Stone carefully measures and cuts the cord exactly fifteen inches. One by one he places each item into the bag. “Excellent…now for the final piece.”
Housed in a leather case, he lovingly places his new Nikon camera on top of the other items. “Now we are ready—so ready.”
This is a prequel to the author Yolanda Renée’s Detective Quaid Mysteries. This story tells of Steven’s first case as a rookie detective. It takes place 10 years before the events in MURDER, MADNESS & LOVE, the first book in the series.
At one time Alaska called to me, and I answered. I learned to sleep under the midnight sun, survive in below zero temperatures, and hike the Mountain Ranges. I’ve traveled from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, and the memories are some of my most valued. The wonders, mysteries and incredible beauty that is Alaska has never left me and thus now influence my writing.
Despite my adventurous spirit, I achieved my educational goals, married, and I have two handsome sons. Writing is now my focus, my newest adventure!
