Joanne Waters was brutally slain by the one man she thought was safe. She was beaten until she was unrecognizable, and beaten some more. Hours later, she was found dead in a lake of her own blood. Through the slats in a hall closet, every second of her torture was witnessed by a boy. Her young son, William, with nowhere to turn, ran through the wilderness with everything he could muster; chased by an unimaginable monster.
Detectives James and Danielle take the case and are on the hunt for the elusive killer, on the hunt for justice...and falling in love? They can never seem to get ahead of this killer; he is one like theyve never known let alone stopped. He possesses an unimaginable strength in mind as well as body. His kills are not solely for pleasure but for a duty. And his son may have the answer to stopping him. That is, if the killers fixation on Danielle doesnt stop them first. The three stories soon collide the boy with a secret, the couple with a mission, and the killer, performing the ultimate process of elimination.
By now you've seen I don't much like this sort of generalized overview. I look for specifics and very vivid language. You can violate every rule I mention if you write well enough.
You may have a great suspense story here but this hook doesn't show it.
