"An exciting serial killer tale"
McCreary County Sheriff Mike "Mac" McArthur and his Deputy
Detective KC Tanner find the missing George Tanner, a
homicide victim who was tortured before he was killed.
Both law enforcement officials are stunned by the amount of
violence inflicted on George. More people soon die with
the culprit customizing the killings and holding a county
in abject fear over who will be next.
Mac's daughter Sharalee MacArthur works as the County
Victim's Advocate. She tries to help families of murder
victims deal with the tragedy they must confront. This is
a tough emotional job, but KC, the county's only homicide
detective, makes it that much more difficult to perform.
His heart is stone cold protected from the outside by
demons from his past, but she fantasizes that one-day he
will love her like she does him. As the clues surface, the
killer adds to the top of the revised list Sharalee, which
leaves Kevin Charles panicked that the love of his life
could be next.
FAÇADE is an exciting serial killer tale that provides
grisly details of the murders through the eyes of the
investigators. The suspense filled story line never misses
a beat even with a romantic subplot. The hearts of the
audience race at a rapid rate due to feeling the same fears
of the residents (sort of like New York during Son of Sam
terror) and ultimately that of the lead protagonists.
Patricia A. Rasey writes a gritty police procedural that is
as intense as the sub-genre can become, which in turn means
a winner for fans.
