A Deranged Killer's Twisted Urges In the streets of New York City, the Slasher chooses his victim--and makes his move. As he wraps his fingers around the girl's pretty throat, his power increases. As he carves into her skin, his words become flesh. As he arranges her lifeless body in a loving tableau, his fantasies demand new, more violent sacrifices. . . A Profiler's Cunning Plan At first, NYPD detectives suspect a jealous boyfriend. But criminal profiler Lee Campbell senses something darker, even ritualistic, about the murder. More chilling, he's convinced he's witnessing the genesis of a full-blown serial killer. But time is running out. A new victim has been chosen. Campbell must search the most terrifying recesses of the human mind--and his own past--before the screaming starts again. . . "Pulse-racing, compelling, first rate. Lawrence knows how to build and hold suspense with the best of them. Once you get into this one, you can't get out. A wild ride down a dark road." --John Lutz, New York Times bestselling author of Urge to Kill "C. E. Lawrence has achieved a rare level of authenticity, not only in character development but also in the realistic use of behavioral science. If you want to read a serial-killer thriller that's solidly based on frightening reality, this is the one." --Louis B Schlesinger, Ph.D., professor of forensic psychology, John Jay College of Criminal Justice "C. E. Lawrence delivers finely honed suspense, with unique twists, and accurately captures the logic and intuition of a profiler under pressure." --Katherine Ramsland, professor of forensic psychology, De Sales University, and author of The Devil's Dozen "Criminally compelling, Silent Screams by C.E. Lawrence nails you to your seat with a fascinating NYPD profiler who's hurled into the case of his lifetime. From the Bronx to Manhattan, Catholic churches to university classrooms, this journey into violence and the soul is unforgettable." --- Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Spies and The Last Spymaster "Silent Screams is a wickedly brilliant, carefully wrought thriller where the roles of hunter and hunted are skillfully blurred. Team up with a virtuoso profiler and a street-wise Bronx detective as they are thrown into an escalating torrent of murder that threatens to sweep them away. It's ride that neither they, or you, will soon forget." --Gregg McCrary, author of The Unknown Darkness: Profiling the Predators Among Us "By setting the horror of fictional killings against the background of 9/11, C.E. Lawrence constantly reminds the reader that life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. The deviant perpetrator of grisly murders is described as someone who has a sophisticated knowledge of forensic investigations. The same can be said of the author. Silent Screams beckons C.E. Lawrence to become a repeat offender in this genre." --Marina Stajic, Ph.D., President of American Board of Forensic Toxicology

From author AJ Chase comes a story of romance, tragedy, suspense, and redemption... Fielding French knows she’s stepping into murky waters when she agrees to prove enigmatic producer Chandler Bentley innocent of murdering his wife. Her promise to her dying uncle involves getting Bentley to trust her, to let her into his life, to tell his secrets. But as a dancer first and an amateur sleuth second, Fielding finds herself torn between the man who raised her and the dangerously seductive lure of the Devil of Broadway. A lifetime of tragedy has driven Chandler Bentley to insulate his heart from any emotion and focus only on his work. Being an island unto himself suits Chandler just fine until Fielding barrels into his life, pushing for friendship, digging for his secrets, prodding at his heart. This heat up when Fielding’s investigation uncovers that the late Mrs. Bentley isn’t the only dead woman in Chandler’s past, and now “The Chorus Girl Killer” is on the prowl and in a town where dancing is everything. Fielding must chose who to trust before it's too late. And when she breaks her uncle’s cardinal rule and falls headlong into a relationship with her subject, she must decide who means more to her: the uncle she loves or the man whose heart she cannot touch.
