Stalking A Killer
From the rocky shores of Lake Stevens near small town Pinehill, Texas, to the teeming streets of Dallas and sweltering beaches of Miami, aspiring PI Amanda Mason fearlessly stalks the killer who is letting her father take the blame for murder. What's worse, Amanda doesn't really trust the man who has agreed to help her and is traveling with her. Since he's keeping his true identity a secret, Amanda fears it's possible he knows all the answers and is purposely keeping her in the dark. But, why?
Amanda has no doubt that Jake, her elderly father, is innocent of the crime. His only crime was taking the wealthy man out on the lake to fish . . . and trusting him. Now, the cops are not only trying to pin the murder on Jake, they're threatening to take Amanda's five-year-old son away from her. Because the cops refuse to look elsewhere for the real killer, Amanda has no choice but to rely on her amateur sleuthing skills to solve the mystery herself. But, can she catch the monster before he kills again?
