Killing Kate, Stalking Susan and 

Missing Mark

Not all angels are divine…As TV reporter Riley Spartz discovers a serial killer drawing chalk outlines shaped like angels around the bodies of his victims, she unearths an eerie legend dating back nearly a century. Tracking clues to an Iowa cemetery, Riley finds an infamous Black Angel monument that may be connected to the string of homicides throughout the Midwest. Now she is up against a delusional young man who believes the statue is urging him to kill.

The local police are convinced the killer has left their territory and Riley's boss is convinced viewers are tired of hearing about so much crime, but a personal connection with the latest victim, Kate Warner, makes Riley determined to solve the case.

Riley also gets the scoop on a dog left locked in a hot car. Her pet-loving news director is crazy about this story, but the dog owner goes crazy, too. Is he now stalking Riley? Or has the angel-killer put Channel 3's top investigator on his hit list? Yearning for love and ratings, it's unsure whether Riley will find either before the killer finds her.

When she meets a mysterious stranger, Riley must decide whether he is her guardian angel or an angel of death. The answer doesn't come until a graveyard confrontation where the dead are the only witnesses.

Inside the desperate world of TV news, a reporter discovers a serial killer is targeting women named Susan.Riley Spartz is recovering from a heartbreaking, headline-making catastrophe of her own when a Minneapolis police source drops two homicide files in her lap.Both cold cases involve women named Susan strangled on the same day, one year apart. Riley sees a pattern between those murders and others pulled from old death records. As the deadly anniversary approaches, she stages a bold on-air stunt to draw the killer out and uncover a motive that will leave readers breathless.

When Riley Spartz sees a want ad reading “Wedding Dress for Sale: Never Worn,” her news instincts tell her that the backstory might make an intriguing television sweeps piece. 

The groom, Mark, last seen at the rehearsal dinner, never showed up for the wedding, humiliating his bride, Madeline—and her high-strung, high-society mother—in front of 300 guests. His own mother, eager to spare him further embarrassment, waited weeks before filing a missing-person report and then learned how difficult it is to get police, or the media, interested in missing men. 

Now Riley is up against a boss who thinks that finding a famed missing fish will net the station higher ratings, a meth cartel trying to assassinate a K-9 dog because of his powerful nose for drugs, and a neighbor who holds perpetual garage sales that attract traffic at odd hours.

When her missing-person case leads to a murder investigation, Riley discovers a startling motive for Mark's disappearance—and a TV exclusive guaranteed to win the ratings . . . if she lives to report it.

  1. Archery as well. It's easier to make a bow and arrow in a pinch.

  1. Chelsea B. said...:

    Bow, Hunger Games style *Grin*

  1. Anonymous said...:

    I rather use understanding and compromise as a weapon

  1. erin said...:

    sword or bow and arrow :) Thanks for sharing!

  1. I would definitely want to be a pro with a bow & arrow. If we had a world like the Hunger Games for example then I would have a weapon that I can make my own arrows and not have to worry about buying bullets or something like that. And a bow and arrow comes in handy!! Thank you so much for these awesome giveaways!!!

  1. lol I'm going with everyone here and saying bow and arrow. It seems like fun! :D

  1. Ty Wilson said...:

    Just to be different, I'm gonna go with a samurai sword. Perfect for when the zombies attack.

  1. I love the idea of arrows. But I also think to just have great aim with a gun would be great too

  1. Anne said...:

    I go with the traditional gun.

  1. NoraA said...:

    Actually years ago I was a N.R.A. Certified Handgun instructor. I'd love to get re-qualified and start shooting and teaching again.

  1. Brynna said...:

    Oooh... I think I'd maybe go for bow and arrow.

  1. Ter said...:

    A sword! Three musketeers style!

  1. Adriana Chavez said...:

    A pro at throwing daggers!

  1. Daniel M said...:

    probably a sword - regnod(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  1. I think I'd be good at using a sword.

  1. I would be a pro with a gun. I already like to target shoot.

  1. Definitely bow and arrow! I've always been more attracted to stealthy things, rather than in-your-face contact. So being able to hide and attack you at the same time is perfect for me :)

  1. Bow and arrow just like Daryl Dixon...because when the zombie apocalypse happens you do not want to draw attention with a gun!

  1. Amber Hsu said...:

    I'd pick either throwing daggers or ninja stars... :-)

  1. Carol M said...:

    I would also pick a bow and arrow. Target shooting would be fun.

  1. Valerie R said...:

    I'd go with daggers.. ;)

  1. I don't care for weapons, but if I had to choose one to become proficient with, I guess I would choose a handgun. I do not want to have to be close to the person in order to use the weapon.

  1. I'd like to be a master of any of said weapons. I don't think I would choose one, just because it sounds cool, but instead, because I want to be able to defend myself better.

  1. katja9_10 said...:

    I would like to be a pro at bow/arrow.

    Les Johnson

  1. If I were to be a pro at any weapon, I would choose a gun.

  1. C. said...:

    I would choose a gun (maybe even being able to shoot two guns in each hand would be cool!).

  1. Christine N. said...:

    bow XD

  1. LAWonder said...:

    I always liked bows and arrows. However, I was once very good with a sling shot,
