The world around him grew uncomfortably quiet as Morris scrolled through the messages and found the one Gilman wanted him to look at. The message read: this is what was found pinned to the victim
. A photo attached to the message showed a business card dotted with two drops of blood. The card read: To Morris Brick: I’m just beginning—R. G. Berg, Serial Killer Extraordinaire
“You said there was a victim?” Morris asked, his voice sounding tinny and unnatural to his own ears.
“Half of one, anyways.”
No one takes down deranged killers like L.A. detective Brick Morris. But a crazed maniac is savagely murdering Hollywood starlets and sending Morris grisly calling cards. And that’s just the first phase of a fiendish “death machine” the relentless killer plans to unleash on Los Angeles. Every move Morris makes triggers another step in the psychopath’s doomsday scenario. Morris has only one choice to stop the killings: the one the killer never expected . . .
Praise For Deranged.
“One of the most compelling, thrilling, and truth be told, at times look-away-from-page-frightening serial killer novels I've read in a long, long time.”
“A fascinating and exciting blend of misdirection, topsy-turvy, and violence.”
—Reed Farrel Coleman
“A dark and different serial killer novel that will haunt the reader long after the book is closed.”
“Los Angeles has seldom seen such grisly fun. It’s James Ellroy meets Alfred Hitchcock on the psychotic side of the street.”
