About the Book - Copy

A body just fell from the sky onto Hollywood Boulevard.

When a beautiful prostitute is dumped onto the Walk of Fame, FBI profiler Atticus Spenser and forensic psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Cassidy are called in to solve one of their most baffling cases yet.

The media’s dubbed him the Fallen Angel Killer – a crazed murderer who’s leaving the bodies of high-priced call girls in Los Angeles tourist traps.

Then the killer raises the stakes, demanding that a mysterious celebrity publically admit to his sinful secrets —or he’ll dispose of his latest kidnapped escort. With every “john” the team exposes in their search for Celebrity X, another Hollywood secret is revealed and another charmed life is left in ruins.

Now time is running out, and Cassidy and Spenser will do anything to find the twisted serial killer…before another innocent woman winds up as the next grotesque tourist attraction.

About the Author

In real life I’m a mild-mannered brunette. A very nice doctor who happens to write edgy romantic thrillers.

Oh, and before I became a doctor, I used to be a clinical psychologist. I guess that’s why writing about psychopaths comes naturally. I still haven’t decided precisely what I want to be when I grow up, so you can expect to see me serving up a genre mix.

Here’s my favorite recipe:  A dollop of romance + a dash of medicine + a cup of crazy. Fold into a story. Bake until it rises, and voila, you’ve cooked up a delicious thriller!

Prologue

Tuesday, July 30

12:00 p.m.

Hollywood, California

It was the kind of scream that could change everything. Elwood Lawrence, known to his squad mates as Woody on account of his obvious appreciation of the hookers Vice dragged in, felt the marrow curdle inside his bones. Reaching for his preferred off-duty carry, the Glock 27 holstered at his hip, his muscles drew tight. In a heartbeat, he was spring-loaded for action, knees flexed, fingers twitching near his gun, gaze searching the crowded street.

Hollywood Boulevard to be exact.

The very personification of this town.

Here on this famous thoroughfare, out-of-work actors, tourists, and drug dealers all shared the same space, basking in the gloried California sun, sucking in air that was both heavy with the smog of despair and high on the promise of dreams come true.

A moment of tense anticipation. Then the Prince, Johnny Depp, and Cat Woman look-alikes stopped working the street for tips and went into suspended animation—the scream had been that powerful. Woody’s ears pricked. Sounded like it’d come from directly above them. Tourists looked up, craning their necks, as if waiting for the show to begin. But he knew this wasn’t part of the festival-o-crap put on for out-of-towners. Knifing through the pedestrians with his shoulders, he sprang in front of his charge, actor Jamie Robb, like a human shield.

What the hell?

Had the last thing he’d expected actually happened? Could there be a legit threat to Jamie Robb?  Had the former child star’s request for personal security at the unveiling of his refurbished Walk of Fame star been motivated by more than an inflated ego? True, his star had been vandalized—hence the replacement ceremony—but that was probably kids.

One beat followed another, passing uneventfully.

Woody flexed, then relaxed his shaky right hand, keeping it close to his pistol. It didn’t figure anyone would have it out for Jamie Robb. Unlike your average everyday former child star, Jamie hadn’t dropped out, coked up, or blown all his dough on whores. He was as squeaky-clean today as when he’d played the role of eight-year-old Chester in Family Rules some twenty-odd years ago. By all accounts, he’d never filed a lawsuit against his parents, cheated on his wife, or punched a paparazzo.

Nor was Robb the type to attract stalkers and what-have-you. He was more the type you barely noticed until he was right in front of you. Up close and personal, though, Woody had to admit he could still catch a whiff of little Jimmy Robb’s secret sauce. But whatever remained of young Jimmy’s charisma was mostly hidden by the extra pounds, balding visage, and defeated eyes of old Jamie. Old being a relative term. Child stars passed their prime so quick, they might as well be aging in dog years.

Jamie Robb was yesterday’s headline. And Woody, on personal leave (a polite way of saying Captain Jeffers had given him thirty days to get sober) from the Hollywood division of the LAPD, wasn’t the freshest slice of pizza pie himself. This bodyguard gig should’ve been a low-risk high-reward way to beef up Woody’s underfed bank account, and hopefully that was just exactly how things would turn out.

Another empty moment passed.

Whatever that scream had been, it seemed like it would stay a mystery, and that was a-okay by him.

He eased his hand off his pistol.

At about the same time he came to the relieved conclusion that nothing other than the usual mischief was afoot, the crowd seemed to do the same. Marilyn Monroe switched on a fan beneath a full fifties-style skirt. SpiderMan motioned over a youngster in sloppy shorts, while his father pulled out a wallet and filled the tip jar. Milling, gawking, and hustling resumed per Hollywood Boulevard protocol.

“What was that?” Jamie Robb looked around almost hopefully. Woody would bet a box of Krispy Kremes that Jamie’s heart had beat like an excited puppy’s when he’d first heard that cry. He’d bet a year’s supply of coffee for dunking those donuts that, at least for a moment, Jamie had believed he’d heard a screaming fan, like in the old days. Of course, that was impossible since there did not appear to be a single Jamie Robb fan in sight.

Woody shrugged. “Somebody screamed.”

Robb’s chest deflated, and his mouth screwed up like he’d just taken a shot of vinegar, then quickly relaxed into a practiced smile. You’d think his publicist would’ve procured a couple of fake fans, brought in a reporter, or at the very least, tipped the SLY Stars tour-bus driver to swing by the event. Speaking of which, where was the master of ceremonies? They should’ve had this show on the road by now. Woody hated seeing any man made into a fool in front of his offspring, so he decided to bluff concern. Looking importantly at Jamie’s kid, a freckly ten-year-old slumped at his father’s side and way overdressed in a long-sleeved shirt and tie, Woody bellowed, “Not to worry, Mr. Robb. My eyes are peeled for all threats.”

“Thank you. My son and I feel a lot more secure with you around.” Jamie made a dramatic half bow, as though playing to an audience, and the kid rolled his eyes.

Woody wondered if Jamie kept the theatrics up at home. Everyone knew celebs were quirky, but this shit was already starting to annoy him; he could only imagine what it must be like to have to live with an actor twenty-four/seven. Or maybe Woody was just edgy because the sun was beating down on the back of his neck, causing sweat to bead uncomfortably beneath his collar, or because his 6:00 a.m. shot of whiskey wasn’t holding him. He was cutting back, he really was, but the eye-opener was no biggie, and he couldn’t quite bring himself to let it go. The stale taste in his mouth reminded him he’d forgotten to grab his breath spray on the way out the door.

Oh well.

He scanned the area yet again, hoping to find a pair of dress shoes among the flip-flops and tennies, a hand holding a mic, any damn sign of someone official. Woody was just about to ask Robb if he’d maybe gotten the date wrong when he spied a kid in black slacks jogging up the boulevard with a pair of chrome posts and some twisted red rope tucked under his armpit. Woody waved at the guy like he was his long-lost friend and got a nod of acknowledgment in return. Good. They were finally setting up for the program. But he still didn’t see the master of ceremonies or any invited guests—not even Tom La Grande.

La Grande, a fast friend of Jamie’s ever since their Family Rules days, had promised to attend the program, and Woody had even offered the megastar free protection, a deluxe two-for-one bodyguard package—three-for-one if you counted Jamie’s kid. But La Grande had claimed he wasn’t famous enough to need a muscleman. Yeah, like La Grande didn’t have two gold statues in his pocket and a home overlooking the surf.

The kid tugged on his father’s shirtsleeve. “Can we go now, Dad?”

Humiliating. Woody tightened his belt, keeping his hands busy. He would’ve given Jamie a sympathetic pat on the back, but that would be overstepping. Despite the quirks, he didn’t mind the guy that much. Jamie might be a washed-up has-been hanging on to the past, but he appeared to be a good dad, and a good husband, and that was a hell of a lot more than Woody could claim.  Thanks to his drinking, his grown kid wouldn’t speak to him, and last week, his sweet Rayleen had packed her bags and returned to Iowa. Only two creatures on the planet who still liked him were his ma and his three-legged pit bull, King … and sometimes his sponsor. It was his sponsor, a former Vice cop like Woody, who’d said all he needed was a break and hooked him up with Jamie Robb’s people.

Another desperate scream.

This time the hairs on every inch of Woody’s body lifted, sounding the alarm. His trigger finger pulsed, ready to pull if called for. Just his lousy luck the one time a sweet gig landed in his lap, something would go and screw it up. Crouching, he drew his Glock. He jerked his gaze upward, and his brain slowed time into a molasses drip as he watched it fall from the sky.

From a window two stories up in the Sky Walk Hotel, a body floated backward, bounced off the awning above them, then rolled onto the ground a few feet in front of him—the head cracking sickeningly against the sidewalk and blood spraying from the neck of a half-nude blond beauty like a busted garden hose.

Woody’s stomach dropped as all sound was absorbed into the uproar surrounding him. His gaze darted about so quickly, it seemed he could see everywhere at once. On every side, tourists fled, shoving, stumbling, some even falling to the ground. Beside him, Jamie Robb froze. His kid yanked on his arm, trying to drag him away, but Robb just stared ahead as though in a daze. His shoulders trembled, then the tremor turned to a full-on shake. Suddenly, Robb’s eyes snapped into focus, and his lips curled away from his teeth. The guy was losing it.

Woody didn’t have that luxury. He tightened his grip on his pistol. Hands steady, now that adrenaline had usurped the hold alcohol had on his nervous system, he shoved Jamie and the kid into a protected alcove to keep them from being trampled by the panicked mob. Then he lunged forward, fighting his way against the crowd until he reached the woman. Staring down at her beautiful, broken body, his breath whooshed out, shrinking his lungs into tight, airless bags. Pressure welled behind his eyes.

Holy mother of saints.

It was as if one of heaven’s own angels had fallen from the sky.

And landed splat on top of Jamie Robb’s shiny new star.

Sense of Place

by Mari Hannah

Landscape, any landscape, has long influenced art: music, painting, poetry and prose. As an avid reader of crime fiction, what I most love about books is that they transport me to places I’ve never been. For example, Richmond, Virginia, a city I know only through Patricia Cornwell’s novels – all of them! Now, through my writing, I’m thrilled to share my own part of the world with new readers in America.

When I was asked to contribute a piece for the Literati website, I jumped at the chance. I thought I’d begin by pinpointing where I live and explain what makes me want to write about it. My home is in the village of Corbridge, Northumberland, population less than 3000, formerly Corstopitum – a garrison town – the most northerly in the Roman Empire. It’s nestled in the Tyne Valley in northern England, once the home of another author you most certainly will have heard of, the late Dame Catherine Cookson.

Corbridge is equidistant, around fifty kilometres, from the Scottish Border, the Land of Prince Bishops (County Durham) and the English Lake District. It is, as we say in this part of the world, ‘a spit’ off Hadrian’s Wall, a location that plays a big part in my second novel Settled Blood when a young woman is found dead at the base of the Roman wall in the shadow of Sewingshields Crags.

I have to admit that when I wrote The Murder Wall, the first book in the Kate Daniels series, I didn’t really think about setting at all. It was only after publication that I came to realise what a major player it was, almost a character in itself – and deservedly so. I know this because crime fiction fans wrote to me in their droves commented on the novel’s strong sense of place.

Now it’s time to ’fess up. I’m not a northerner at all; I was born in Westminster, London and moved here as a teenager. That said, I’ve always credited the region and its writers with inspiring my success. I believe you cannot separate people from places. Once I’d created Kate Daniels as a miner’s daughter from Northumberland, the rest was easy. She took on a life of her own. I couldn’t write about her without making tangible references to her surroundings. Imagine sailing into New York without mentioning the Statue of Liberty. It’s a no-brainer.

So, who is my fictional murder detective and where does she hang out? Well, Kate is a Detective Chief Inspector in Northumbria Police, one of the largest forces in the UK. It serves a population of one and a half million and covers two thousand square miles. The area is my stamping ground too, so I travel widely for research, visiting locations day and night, in fine weather or foul, to really get the feel of the places I’m writing about.

Kate lives in Jesmond – a leafy suburb of Newcastle upon Tyne – the centre of my universe before I moved to the Tyne Valley. I still visit often and I’m proud to have been included in a long list of writers from the 1800s to the present day who have a connection to the area. Not a bad accolade for an incomer! See if you can spot my flag on the photograph below.

places

When Kate is not investigating crime she likes nothing better than to climb on her Yamaha motorcycle and ride out in the countryside. Her destination of choice is Hartside Pass, the place she goes for solitude after a harrowing case. From there she can see right across the Solway Firth to Scotland as well as Helvellyn, Great Gable and Skiddaw in The Lakes.

There really is nowhere else like Northumberland. The landscape is so diverse; the city isn’t far away and we have the most dramatic countryside right on our doorstep, sweeping coastline and castles – it really is magical, providing a constant flow of ideas and creativity.

I’m not conscious of it but I think my passion for the area shines through in my writing. It prompted The Times’ Marcel Berlins to list Kate as a Northerner to join the roster of top literary detectives. It has been said that I depict the dark side of my region but I’m always sensitive to places and people. Where necessary, I play with the geography a little, changing names of key buildings where I have to! A church for example where two bodies are found in The Murder Wall as alluded to by another journalist in the next paragraph . . .

The Arts and Entertainment Editor of my local newspaper was certainly tickled by the fact that he knew many of the places in my debut. Just after the novel came out, he wrote: “One of the truly great things about Mari’s thriller is that – with the exception of the church, fictionalized as the Catholic St Camillus because she thought choosing St Andrew’s, real-life and C of E, would be a step too far – she is not afraid to use real North East place names. You can follow the route taken by her heroine, DCI Kate Daniels, as she drives around Tyneside and the Tyne Valley. The pizzeria at the end of my street even gets a name check, as does the deli not far away.”

The dramatic and far-reaching landscape around me means that I’m able to ring the changes as far as locations go. It keeps the books fresh, taking my readers to new destinations every time. In Deadly Deceit, we move to a gritty inner city area, Newcastle’s West End, on the eve of a World Cup football (English soccer) match, with the eyes of the world on South Africa.

I think it’s fairly obvious by now that I set my books in the north of England because it’s where I live and where my heart is. When I’m away from the region, it pulls me back. I feel a deep sense of loss, even though I wasn’t born here. I fell in love with the area and I hope US readers will too.

The Murder Wall, Settled Blood and Deadly Deceit will be published by Witness Impulse, digital imprint of Harper Collins/William Morrow.
