Women beware the devil’s in town

Strike one, two, three

You’ll all be down…


The usually tranquil and picturesque city of Champaign, Illinois, is being rocked by an evil force, turning it upside down.


Three closely bonded women—all talented, all beautiful, potent with success and charisma—return to their old lives and Alma Mater for their 10th school reunion. One of the trio is suspiciously murdered—Extraordinarily this is the first homicide in fifty years. Who could be responsible for committing such a heinous crime in a charming city positively brimming with people, many of whom have something to hide?


Dark secrets bubble in Champaign…


There’s only one man fit for this role: Lieutenant Craig Ryan, relentless in his pursuit of justice. By his side is his former partner, Kirsten Wells, reporter and darling of Champaign, whose grief fuels her need for the truth.


As the investigation heightens, a slew of cryptic poetic clues and riddles are strewn around.



Indeed irksome.

One by one, the women of Champaign find their way into a psychotic killer’s web.

Nothing will prevent him from getting what he wants. His plans must be foiled before it’s too late…
