Deadly Fare



When beautiful young women begin to vanish from Boston Logan International Airport, State Police Lt. Hannah Summers is the only one who sees a pattern amidst the cold case files. She knows a killer is on the loose, and she’s determined to make her chauvinistic bosses believe her hunch about a gypsy cab driver--before it’s too late.

As the body count rises, so does the public’s panic. Under pressure from the district attorney to make the killings stop, Summers soon finds herself rubbing elbows with ex-Special Forces soldier Emmett Decker, a private investigator hired by the wealthy family of a missing local girl. The more their paths cross, the harder it is to deny they may be chasing the same monster -- and that the tension between them is more than purely professional.

One thing is certain: the Boston Butcher must be stopped before any more women climb inside his cab, and wind up paying the ultimate price.

See why reviewers are calling Deadly Fare a haunting, gripping, wild ride.

Slip inside the mind of a serial killer...
★★★★★ Five stars. “The sex scenes were exciting, the murders were freaky! This author is twisted. I loved every page.”
