The Dollmaker Publication Day–November 15

The Dollmaker Publication Day–November 15

Tuesday, November 15

November 15 is publication date for The Dollmaker, the second of The Forgotten Files, which began with The Shark.

Forensic pathologist Tessa McGowan, her estranged husband Virginia State Police Agent Dakota Sharp and Shield computer expert Garrett Andrews have one goal. They’re after a bizarre killer who changes victims’ appearances—permanently—so that they look like dolls. Perfect dolls.
