All the Pretty Bones
After ten years of living in the shadow of her stalker, a diagnosis of terminal cancer pushes Olivia Kardos to take matters into her own hands. Her final days will not be spent isolated from the world nor hiding like a hunted animal. It’s time for Mark Porter to die. Going against a trained killer alone would be foolish, but the handsome arms dealer who offers to help her has a dark secret of his own.
Homicide Detective Sean Howard has tried to push his ex out of his mind, but his next case brings her crashing back into his life. A woman is found exsanguinated and brutally stabbed in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood and she could be Olivia’s doppelganger. As more women are murdered and the similarities grow, Sean can’t shake the feeling that Olivia is next.
In a world where demons and vampires lurk just beneath the surface, what you don’t know can kill you.
Inspiration for the Cover Concept
Mark liked to leave little shrines on her vehicle, in front of her building, or shipped in boxes. The first time he left her one she found it beautiful. A perfect replica of the Yellow Crane Tower with its upturned eaves and thousands of tiny tiles etched into ivory. Until she looked closer at the tiny struts and beams that were propped into an intricate tower the height of her hand. Each of those little interlocking pieces was a bone from something small. Sometimes he left muscle, sinew, or a little fur to accent the structure, but there was always a note.
You belong with me.
