Sergeant Caroline Rickson has broken a cardinal rule of police enforcement; she’s a made a case personal. Every morning, while still off-duty, she jogs the same trail on which The Stanley Park Rapist finds his victims, in hopes that he will attack her. She fantasizes about what she’ll do to him if he tries.
The Stanley Park Rapist is a novella that describes Sergeant Rickson’s final case as a member of the VPD. It is the case that breaks her.
It is a prequel to my novel, Death in Halfmoon Bay.
Unlike the cozy/traditional Suzanne Rickson Mystery of Death in Halfmoon Bay, Caroline’s story is not a cozy.
“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” Matthew 10:34
Before writing a cozy, I produced the polar opposite. A first-person narrated story of a pure psychopath. Have You Ever Heard of The Lent Killer pushes boundaries. The notion of his imminent death pulls a man into extreme measures. He is a suffering from delusions and focused on a single objective: immortality via infamy. His goal is to kill forty people in the forty days of lent. Everything planned to culminate in the assassination of a US Senator on Good Friday. But as any sane or insane person can agree: plans don’t always work out.
Hot Tramp verges on insanity. A prequel and a teaser to my first novel, Straight Men in Gay Bars. Defiantly un-wholesome and definitely not PC. But rather bizarre and edgy. If cozy is thy cup of tea, Hot Tramp is not for thee.
Eric is preforming a new social stunt by wearing a red boa to Vancouver’s hottest gay night club, Celebrities. His plan is to reprimand men as that try to pick him up; insisting that it is wrong to assume that all cross dressers are gay. It’s a dumb idea, but Eric is drunk and he enjoys the foolishness, besides what could go wrong?
