I revealed this on Facebook and Twitter a couple of weeks ago, but somehow I neglected to post this here.
My follow-up to THE SPECIMEN is due to be published on Mother’s Day (for reasons that should be obvious). Elderlemon Design has whipped up yet another phenomenal cover that perfectly matches the story. When it’s up for preorder on Amazon, I’ll be sure to let everyone know
Those of you waiting for the sequel to THE SPECIMEN will have to wait a bit longer (sorry ). This is a stand-alone novel that does take place in the smae universe with a couple of minor crossover characters, but you need not have read my other books.
Below the cover image is the synopsis.
SHE IS NOT A SERIAL KILLER…
Someone is slaughtering women in Boston. For nearly a decade, a dozen bodies have been found in and around the city. Missing their heads and all internal organs, the corpses quickly dissolve into a foul necrotic sludge soon after discovery. The authorities have no leads. The public is terrified. The local papers have named the killer The Headsman, but it is not a man who is behind these deaths.
SHE IS NOT A VAMPIRE…
When the 13th victim is discovered, something is obviously different. This body does not decompose as rapidly as the others. Evidence shows that the neck has been ravaged, the body cavity has been scraped clean, and not one single drop of blood remains. Above all, though, authorities are able to gather enough clues to identify her and set them on the path to find her killer.
SHE IS SOMETHING SO MUCH WORSE…
Her name is Maan-Daa. Once she was a young peasant Khmer woman expecting her first child. Now, centuries later, in a country far from the land of her birth, she has become a ravenous creature out of the darkest legend. Hungering for the flesh of innocents, she will unleash hell upon the citizens of Boston and blood will flow in the streets.
SHE IS THE BLOOD MOTHER
