KILLER SCORE is here! ๐Ÿ”ช๐Ÿ•ต

Hi everyone!

I hope yโ€™all are doing okay and hanging in there. I was just browsing Google and learned that today is International Sloth Day (how cute is that?) and National Day on Writing . Now this last one is an absolute WOW coincidence, because today is a big deal for me in the writing department. ๐Ÿ˜Š

KILLER SCORE, my second novel from The Irish Garda Squad, has launched today!

Whatโ€™s it about?

Obsession is a dangerous thing, especially if youโ€™re the targetโ€ฆ

Detective Evan Gallagher has exchanged his job as an FBI agent for a position within Irelandโ€™s police force. An Garda Sรญochรกna rarely deals with serious crime, and Evan thinks Dublin would be a quiet place to start overโ€”but heโ€™s proven wrong.

Psychologist Chelsea Campbell never thought that volunteering as profiler for the Garda would change her life so drasticallyโ€”until Detective Gallagher calls her to a murder scene in the middle of the night.

Is this a one-time impulse, or is the killerโ€™s agenda only starting? As hard as Chelsea and Evan struggle to solve the case, neither of them expects a second dead body so soon. Working against the clock, they have to win this cat-and-mouse game before the killer claims the next intended victimโ€”which happens to be one of them.

Whatโ€™s the idea behind it?

Well, like most of my books, this one started with a grain of reality. Basically, it all began with cyber-stalking (I will delve into that in a later post). Last year a friend told me that someone I was briefly in school with had fallen in hate with me. I hadnโ€™t seen or spoken to this person in almost twenty years, so you can imagine my surprise when I looked at the stalkerโ€™s social media page and discovered dozens of posts full of trash talk. My name was never mentioned, but it was obvious I was the target. Someone had an obsession with me, without my knowledge.

I wondered of course if this person had medical psychological issues, or if this was just a childish way to pass the time. Itโ€™s usually some of both. Unfortunately, social media stalking is frightfully popularโ€”probably more than you realize. The first thing to do when you deal with a stalker is to report the issue to the social media platform, block the stalker, and determine if he/she represents a real danger. If so, contact the authorities immediately.

Itโ€™s not a problem to be taken lightly, which is how I came up with the idea for Killer Scoreโ€”by wondering  how far a person like that would go to hurt the object of their obsession. And the rest is fictionโ€ฆ mostly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

KILLER SCORE is available on Amazon and FREE on Kindle Unlimited.

If you havenโ€™t read Dare Game, the first book in the series, but would like to give Killer Score a chance, go for it! The books can be read as stand-alones and do not contain cliffhangers.

Stay safe and healthy,
