13 1/2

Published 2009

13 1/2 is a taut and terrifying 'stand-alone' psychological thriller.  After only a week on the stands, it made its appearance on the New York Times Bestseller list. 

Polly Deschamps suspects there might be a connection between her beau and a series of decades-old murders.  Two broken pasts collide in an uncertain present carrying the reader from the horrifying 1970's murder spree of a child--dubbed "Butcher Boy" by a shocked public--in Rochester, Minnesota, to Polly, the abused daughter of Mississippi "trailer trash," to post-Katrina New Orleans.
