THE I-94 MURDERS (North Star Press, 2018)
A tryst of bondage. A lover’s murder.
Investigator Jon Frederick returns in a search to uncover the identity of a killer creeping through communities along I-94 in Minnesota, targeting couples who store their fetish photos online. The killer taunts Jon with hidden messages embedded in local media that lead him to Sonia, a young woman with a terrible secret. A fast-paced thriller based on the profile of a true-life serial murderer, The I-94 Murders guides the reader with an insider’s light along the dark road of the killer.
murder book (n): the twenty-first century term for a cold case where a homicide is suspected.
Jon Frederick spent his adolescence protecting his mentally ill brother and worrying about his parents’ farm as it headed toward bankruptcy. So when Mandy Baker, the alluring new girl in town, pursued him, he was easily enamored. But on the day he ended their tryst, Mandy vanished. There is no doubt in the small Minnesota town of Pierz that the flirtatious girl is dead, and there is little doubt that Jon got away with murder.
A decade later, Jon is made an investigator with the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. While investigating a case near his hometown, Jon quietly reopens the murder book on Mandy Baker and begins to see commonalities between Mandy’s disappearance and his new case. Digging up the past raises intriguing possibilities with an old friend, Serena Bell—but also forces them to work through old betrayals. As the investigation intensifies, Jon realizes he has crossed paths with the killer before.
A convincing piece of fiction that pulls you into a heart-breaking human experience with unpredictable and jolting twists. It leaves you feeling frustrated as you experience the nonchalant arrogance of the sinister characters and plots. The author’s rants grant a slight reprieve from these edgy and erratic feelings.
