Synopsis


Scott Drayco was a man with everything going for him: handsome, brilliant, a talented classical pianist in the prime of his youth. After violence scarred him physically and emotionally, he turned to an FBI career and now freelances as a crime consultant, taking on cases other people often don't want to touch. From a suspected serial killer who plays mind games with Drayco, to murder and revenge at 20,000 feet, these eight stories of literary suspense delve into the darkest mysteries of the human soul.

Praise for Derringer Award-winning BV Lawson's short fiction:

"We've had the pleasure of reading these tales and can enthusiastically recommend them." - Omnimystery News

FALSE SHADOWS kept me guessing until the very end. I'd recommend this book to experienced mystery readers who enjoy wrestling with skillfully placed hints that don't easily reveal their secrets. - Long and Short Reviews

"Now this story was close to brilliance.... loved the concept of this story. The main character was truly three-dimensional, a noteworthy feat especially in a short story. The plot was fast, dark and thrilling. I had a hunch halfway through about what would happen, and I was right, but that didn't make the reading experience any less pleasant. The writing was fluent and the story intriguing, and I loved the end." - IHeartReading.net

"...One of the best shorts I've read this year. Scary and triumphant in the bleakest kind of way with two of the best characters I've read. - AJ Hayes, author of the Mad Dog and Englishman series

"Awesome story. Beautifully written...you have really written something special." - Terrie Farley Moran, author of the Read 'Em and Eat Café and Bookstore series

"This was a well written, fast read that held my attention." -- Druidgirl Reviews

"That the author could fit all of this into a short story and make me connect to the characters makes me want to read more of her work." - Midu Reviews
