She didn’t notice the corn stalks shiver a few feet to her right. By the time she looked up, the man towered above her. In a single movement he wrapped one thick hand around her waist, the other he clamped over her mouth, muffling her screams.
Detective Clara Jefferies has spent years running from her childhood in Alber, Utah. But when she hears that her baby sister Delilah has disappeared, she knows that the peaceful community will be shattered, her family vulnerable, and that that she must face up to her past and go home.
Clara returns to find that her mother, Ardeth, has isolated her family by moving to the edge of town, in the shadow of the mountains. Ardeth refuses to talk to the police and won’t let Clara through the front door, believing she and her sister-wives can protect their own. But Clara knows better than anyone that her mother isn’t always capable of protecting her children.
When Clara finds out that two more girls have disappeared, all last seen around the cornfields near her family’s home, she realizes it’s not just Delilah who’s in danger. And then she gets a call that a body has been found…
Clara will have to dig deep into the town’s secrets if she’s going to find Delilah. But that will mean confronting the reason she left. And as she gets closer to Delilah, she might be putting her more at risk…

Over a three-decade span, more than twenty women--many teenagers--died mysteriously in the small towns bordering Interstate 45, a fifty-mile stretch of highway running from Houston to Galveston. The victims were strangled, shot, or savagely beaten. Six met their demise in pairs. They had one thing in common: being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The day she vanished, Colette Wilson waited for her mother after band practice. Best friends Debbie Ackerman and Maria Johnson loved to surf and were last seen hitchhiking. Laura Kate Smither dreamed of becoming a ballerina and disappeared just weeks before her thirteenth birthday.
In this harrowing true crime exposition, award-winning journalist Kathryn Casey tracks these tragic cases, investigates the evidence, interviews the suspects, and pulls back the cloak of secrecy in search of elusive answers.
Profiler Sarah Armstrong knows what it’s like to be in a sticky situation. But when megawealthy businessman Edward
Lucas III is found murdered along with his mistress, their bodies posed in grotesque ways, Sarah quickly senses that this will be the deadliest case of her career.
While others focus on Lucas’s estranged wife, Sarah hunts a suspect only she believes in. Yet nothing in her career has prepared her for the horror of a young man who believes he has been sent from heaven to massacre innocent people.
When Sarah picks up the killer’s elusive trail, the psychopath sets his sights on all she holds dear. Filled with pulse-pounding action, Singularity features a feisty, funny, and tough heroine and a truly creepy killer, as it races along to a chilling and unexpected climax.
When Detective Clara Jefferies returned home to Alber, Utah, she knew it would take a long time to convince the closed community to trust her. So she is surprised to be called to private land up in the mountains, until she hears that the bones of a young girl have been found. And hidden in the dark depths of the grave are the remains of a baby too…
Digging into the town’s missing persons files, Clara is shocked to discover that pregnant girls have been going missing for years. And when she spots Ash Crawford, the first cop on the scene, praying over the bodies, she begins to suspect that he knows more about the victim than he’s letting on.
With Crawford staying silent, and the identity of the girl still unknown, Clara’s only choice is to visit every family living on the mountaintop, desperate to find what they might be hiding. But doing so means facing the man she was once bound to, and the tall iron gates of the ranch she ran away from all those years ago.
Then another pregnant girl is reported missing, and Clara ramps up her search, racing to find her alive. But can she uncover the town’s dark secrets in time to save both the girl and her unborn child?
A heart-pounding crime thriller that twists and turns like a rollercoaster, leaving you on the edge of your seat. Readers of Lisa Regan, Linda Castillo and Kendra Elliot will be completely addicted.

When Detective Clara Jefferies is called to a ranch just outside of Alber, Utah, she’s sickened to find two innocent young children murdered alongside their mothers. Their father, Jacob Johansson, has been rushed to hospital where he fights for his life. Blissfully unaware, his two-month-old son Jeremy has been left untouched in his crib.
In the eyes of the community Jacob is the perfect, devout husband, seemingly living a peaceful, happy life. But Clara is certain that the crime is personal: one of Jacob’s wives was killed differently, her lips painted after she died. Soon, Clara discovers photos of her in Jacob’s best friend’s trailer, and her flower necklace underneath the bed.
When witnesses, including Clara’s own mother, refuse to speak about the case, it becomes clear that loyalty to the community is more important than finding a killer at large. The people of Alber will never trust Clara; she may have returned home but they will always see her as the girl who abandoned her family.
And yet Clara won’t give up. She is sure that Jacob and baby Jeremy are still at risk, and the longer the secretive town stands in the way of her solving this case, the more danger they’re in…

"Grabs your attention from the start and keeps going. You don’t want to put it down. Sarah Armstrong is a great character." - Five-star Goodreads review
Hidden in the shadows of an East Texas pine forest, a man and a woman watch worshippers file out of a church. The man lights a match, and flames erupt, climbing the thirsty clapboard walls, as the pastor trapped inside pleads for divine intervention and human help that never comes.
Meanwhile Texas Ranger Lieutenant Sarah Armstrong sketches the memories of a serial killer, as he describes the faces of his victims. Following his clues, Sarah guides the search for the remains of young women long dead and buried in unmarked graves.
Then from behind prison walls, the serial killer attempts to claim yet another victim, a woman who risked everything to escape his lethal grasp. She fought him and lived once before, but now only Sarah can save her, a quest that will plunge them both into the fires of hell. A pulse-pounding thriller, THE BURIED takes readers inside Texas' Death Row and the minds of two twisted serial killers.
On a quiet afternoon in Houston, 4-year-old Joey Warner plays in a park sandbox when a stranger approaches, looking for his runaway dog. While Joey's mom, Crystal, talks on her cell phone, the stranger convinces the child to help him search. By the time Crystal turns around, her son has disappeared.
Yet her reaction is odd, not what one would expect from a distraught mother. Is Crystal Warner somehow involved in her son's abduction?
Meanwhile, on a cattle ranch outside Houston, Texas Ranger and profiler Sarah Armstrong assesses a symbol left on the hide of a slaughtered longhorn, a figure that dates back to a forgotten era of sugarcane plantations and slavery. Soon, other prize-winning bulls are found butchered on the outskirts of the city, each bearing a new but similar symbol.
Before long, the two investigations converge at the same time a catastrophic hurricane threatens. One of Sarah's close friends is murdered, and the clock ticks as the storm moves in. If Sarah doesn't act quickly, the child will die. Kathryn Casey delivers a fast-paced, exciting third case for Sarah Armstrong, one of the pluckiest and most complex female investigators to come along in a long time.
Readers loved Sarah Armstrong, the feisty and vulnerable profiler in Kathryn Casey's first mystery, Singularity. She's back in this second book in the series with her hands full with two cases at once: A persistent and potentially lethal stalker pursues pop mega-star Cassidy Collins, and a high-energy Houston businesswoman is found dead in her house.
Though the businesswoman's death is being called a suicide, when Sarah is shown photographs of the scene, something seems off. It looks too perfect, almost staged, and Billie Cox had every reason to want to life. The victim's sister is convinced Billie was murdered and urges Sarah to take a closer look.
During her investigation, Sarah uncovers a multimillion-dollar scam and traces a trail of greed. Meanwhile, teenage idol Cassidy receives threatening e-mails and text messages and hears creepy whispers over her headset at performances. Cassie's next performance is at a Houston rodeo.
Sarah once again teams up with FBI agent David Garrity, and together they plot to outwit and capture the stalker, but at the concert the unthinkable happens.
Kathryn Casey spins a tight plot with memorable characters and great action scenes while paying close attention to Sarah's struggles as a widow and mother. The result is a multilayered exciting and satisfying read.
JUDGE. JURY. EXECUTIONER.
On a cold January morning, the killer executed Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse in broad daylight. Eight shots fired a block from the Kaufman County Courthouse. Two months later, a massacre. The day before Easter, the couple slept. Bunnies, eggs, a flower centerpiece gracing the table. Death rang their doorbell and filled the air with the rat-a-tat-tat of an assault weapon discharging round after round into their bodies.
Eric Williams and his wife, Kim, celebrated the murders with grilled steaks. Their crimes covered front pages around the world, many saying the killer placed a target square on the back of law enforcement. Williams planned to exact revenge on all those who had wronged him, one at a time. Throughout the spring of 2013, Williams sowed terror through a small Texas town, and a quest for vengeance turned to deadly obsession. His intention? To keep killing, until someone found a way to stop him.

With her stunning looks, magnetic personality, and erratic behavior, Ana Trujillo had a notorious reputation on the downtown Houston scene. She spoke often of occult powers, though few knew how deeply she believed such boasts. Stefan Andersson was a gentle soul, a Swedish transplant with a good career and trusted friends, who was desperate to find someone special. Theirs is a story of obsession, madness, and tragedy. Because once Stefan fell head over heels for Ana, he was under her control—and he didn’t have a chance in hell.
