Now available as an audio book: "Forgive Me, Alex," a psychological thriller.

Amazon: http://bit.ly/FB4FMAaudioAM Audible.com: http://bit.ly/FB4FMAaudioAC
iTunes: http://bit.ly/FB4FMAaudioIT

Two personalities, two attitudes, two goals, two methods - one darkness.

Tony Hooper stands in shadow across the street, one amongst many in the crowd of curiosity-hounds gathered to watch a monster's release. Seventeen years after Mitchell Norton, the devil, terrorized Algonquin, Illinois on a spree of kidnapping, torture and murder, the authorities release the butcher from psychiatric prison.

Tony longs to charge across the street to destroy Norton - no remorse - as if stepping on a cockroach. Only sheer force of will prevents his doing so.

The devil walks the world again. What shall Tony do about it? Aye, what indeed.

After all, this is what Tony does. It's who he is. The devil himself long ago made Tony into this hunter of monsters. What a sweet twist of fate this is, that he may still, finally, administer justice.

Will FBI Special Agent Linda Monroe stop him? She owes him her life, so how can she possibly put an end to his?

Two men are inexorably linked in the wake of devastation, ripped from the comfortable world they know and thrown into a dark place previously unimaginable. One is driven to evil, to seek a world where unfathomable misery and unbearable pain are the rules of the realm, where the look of death is upon all who practice the wicked craft, and it is a joyful grin, indeed. The other is driven to a gray path where he seeks merely to destroy such incomprehensible evil, to do what the law is not always able to do, to remove from the world the men who become monsters.

I've always rather liked this review of "Forgive Me, Alex," a psychological thriller.

Review from Flal ("Flalbert") - Amazon Verified Purchase:

"Forgive Me Alex is a novel driven by two main characters, the protagonist Tony Hooper and the antagonist Mitchell Norton. The chapters, for the most part, are given from each characters point of view, and the execution of each is what makes the story soar. With Tony you feel like it is a friend talking to you, the initial joys of his feelings towards his brother and then his girlfriend. Later this changes to despair, angst, and also hope. With Mitchell, you get the warped mind of a crazy, sadistic psychiopath. Both POV's are like ying/yang in literary form and each character is well structured. Of course other characters grace the story, my favorite of which was Tony's uncle, Frank

"The story moved at a brisk pace as the reader is propelled back and forth between the two viewpoints and subplots that go back and forth through time until you are creasing pages to ease your own angst and see where each destiny merges and the fates of each.

"If you like a thriller with substance and characters that are so real you think you may have read about them in the paper I highly recommend this excellent novel."

Dear Writer,

Need help with just a small issue or two or three, but not a full-blown coaching/editing session? Would a "mini-edit" suit your needs?

Author, Managing Publisher/Editor - Evolved Publishing
Introduction
I write fiction, long and short. My writings cross over many genres and focus on diverse subjects, ranging from the mysteries of the human mind, with its fragile psychological and emotional states, to the everyday joy and anguish of life on Earth.

I’ve been an avid reader my entire life, and started writing at the age of 12. I love a good story, of course, a compelling plot and satisfying conclusion. Yet as a reader, I’ve always been drawn to great characters. The characters bring me back to an author time and time again. This shows in my writing, where I attempt to create authentic, complex, real characters you can come to love, and in whose company you feel at home. Or maybe you’ll despise a character and want to stick a fork in his eye. Hey, bad guys are fun too!

I did my tour in the real world, serving in the U.S. Air Force, then working as everything from a forklift operator to a bartender in my youth, before settling in as Business Services and Project Manager for a large manufacturing and distribution concern. Now, at long last (Man! Why did I wait so long?), I’m putting pedal to the metal in pursuit of the author’s life.

After many years as a Freelance Editor, with several clients published or aspiring to be so, I co-founded Evolved Publishing, where I wear many hats. As an author, I started with a few short stories, and released my debut novel, a psychological thriller called Forgive Me, Alex, in December 2011. The sequel, The Devil’s Bane, is under way and due in the second half of 2014.
