PAIN KILLER, a twisty, edge-of-your-seat thriller, moves from Boston to New York City, Miami Beach, Atlanta and the University of Florida campus. Follow this page-turning emotional roller coaster and watch how the dots are connected to find the solution to the horrific crime spree. Just in time.
After TJ Maverick’s wife dies in a vicious terrorist attack, can TJ find a way to be motivated by his pain instead of being defined by it? This question will take him, and anyone who goes with him, on a fast-paced, life-altering journey. In unfamiliar and dangerous surroundings TJ enters the world of monsters. A psychology professor who becomes a FBI criminal profiler, TJ must allow the invasion of personal pain to lead him to a new direction, a new outlook and a new understanding of life.
Pain always has consequences. Those who inflict pain have suffered pain — and the cycle always continues. Hurt people hurt people. No two people handle pain in exactly the same way.
Toes cut off. Blood removed drop by drop. Ten digits as a key number. Last sounds whispered into a victim’s ear being the letters T-H-C. The monster is dealing with its pain. But why? When enough pieces of the puzzle fit together, the monster’s face is revealed.
When the motive is known, the monster is known. Pain always has history and histories overlap for the monster and TJ. Where will it lead?
