The Cruelest Cut


Title:
 The Cruelest Cut
Author: Rick Reed
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Thriller/Suspense
Format: Kindle

When a killer plays mind games with a cop, There Are No Rules.
The first victim is attacked in her home. Tied to her bed. Forced to watch every unspeakable act of cruelty–but unable to scream. The second murder is even more twisted. Signed, sealed, and delivered with a message for the police, stuffed in the victim’s throat. A fractured nursery rhyme that ends with a warning: “There will be more.” For detective Jack Murphy, it’s more than a threat. It’s a personal invitation to play. And no one plays rougher than Jack. Especially when the killer’s pawns are the people he loves. . .

“A must-read, can’t-put-down adventure.”–John Lutz

“A tornado of drama.”–Shane Gericke

“Reed Writes As Only A Cop Can…. Impressive And Dramatic.” –Nelson Demille

Take One Deranged Killer. Add One Determined Cop.
You Get One Deadly Obsession…

From the moment he sees the young woman’s body in her hotel bathtub, homicide detective Jack Murphy knows he’s looking at a truly demented but brilliantly designed puzzle. She’s been drained of blood. Missing her left hand–and the killer left a special message just for him. Hours later, he sees her severed hand arranged on a second victim’s body. The newspaper has the gruesome details. The FBI has a theory. But only Murphy knows how hard he’ll have to push–and how much he’ll have to risk–to thwart the killer’s twisted game.

Nina Parsons was not only a deputy prosecutor, but the rumored lover of the man Jack’s ex-wife is about to marry: the Chief Deputy Prosecutor.

Pages: 299
Genre: Travel Mystery

Outfitter Hardy Durkin and company are visiting the Black Forest area of Germany, staying in the guest wing of a local castle, Schloss Haeflin. In the midst of hiking the Black Forest, enjoying all things Swabian, and spending a day in Baden-Baden, the hikers find themselves at ground zero for coeds disappearing from the nearby University of Freiburg and foul play is suspected. Unresolved personal issues of several members of the group threaten the tour’s cohesion, and Hardy discovers the Baron, who owns the schloss, has stolen someone’s identity as well as his fortune. Ever the sleuth, Hardy untangles the web of deceit, madness, and murder in ‘The Black Forest Reckoning’.
