April 25 is release day for The Hangman, my third The Forgotten Files novel. Here’s a peek at the latest case ….
When Virginia cop Julia Vargas isn’t chasing down bad guys, she dedicates herself to investigating the unsolved Hangman serial killings. The case casts a long shadow, including on Julia and her family. Her father was working it when he supposedly killed himself three decades ago, and rumors about what happened then still haven’t died down. Julia is determined to find the truth.
When a woman’s bones are discovered in a historic downtown home, along with a photograph of Jim and Julia as a young girl, echoes of the Hangman and the earlier killings resonate. The murder, horrible as it is, may hold the key to reopen the dormant investigation. Working alongside homicide detective Tobias Novak, with whom she shares a complicated—and steamy—history, Julia’s forced to confront her own past to find answers and a killer.
