In my upcoming book, A Carol for Kent Book 3 in the Song of Suspense Series, I have a serial killer who needs a nickname.
The victims are young women who are all tall and thin with red hair. The killer dresses them up in professional clothes, down to matching shoes and jewelry. Then they’re strangled with violin string and posed them, spread eagle, with red candles at their heads, each hand, and each foot. This happens in Richmond, Virginia.
So … name him. Leave it in the comments below. What would the press call him? If I choose your name, you will win an autographed copy of A Carol for Kent, or all three Song of Suspense Series books in ebook – your choice.
Here are the first three paragraphs of chapter 1, to give you an idea:
CAROL Mabry stared down at the body on the floor of apartment 3G. The dead woman wore a gray silk pantsuit and pink silk blouse. Her hair was perfectly coiffed into a French twist, and her makeup looked like it had been applied professionally. Pink beads adorned her neck, hanging loosely against her breasts. Pink ball earrings were clipped to each ear.
She lay spread eagle on the ground, her eyes a blank stare in the direction of the ceiling. Some sort of wire around her neck had cut into her skin, making it look like she had on a red necklace.
At her head, at each of her hands, and at her feet, fat red candles burned. The crimson colored wax had run down the candlesticks and pooled into the beige carpet.
