Laura Baxter and Jack Holt
 are
members of the elite: Las Vegas Metro PD, one of the toughest and

middle of a city with two million residents and 43 million annual
visitors, they’re searching for a missing girl and the ruthless
killers who snatched her.

 

 

The
girl: gone

 

When a teenage
girl is daringly kidnapped from her school, minutes after being
dropped off, a frenzied search begins, involving the entire police
force of a city that never sleeps. But for 
Detectives
Baxter and Holt
 this isn’t a
crime like any other; it is personal. 

 

 

The
crimes: terrifying

 

A bold and
merciless serial killer preys on young girls and leaves them out to
die in the cold and dreadful expanse of the Mojave Desert, unable to
move, to scream, to fight for their lives.

 

The
choice: impossible

 

Now Detective
Holt
 is faced with an agonizing
decision: he can sacrifice all that he holds dear or jeopardize the
life of an innocent girl, his own flesh and blood. The man holding
all the cards in this game of life and death isn’t willing to
negotiate; he’s only willing to kill. 

 

 

In
Las Vegas, few things end well.

 

 

Two
mavericks form an intriguing team. Baxter and Holt trust each other
with their lives, just not with their secret plans.

Could you survive a demon bent on driving you to suicide?“If you’re open to reading a book that is genuinely disturbing, in some cases distasteful, and creepy as hell, then I’m pretty sure you’ll ‘enjoy’ Shadows.” – Dave de Burgh, author of Betrayal’s Shadow“Dark, twisted and creepy, Shadows will take you out of your comfort zone and keep you glued to the pages of the book, regardless of whether or not you want to.” – Tammy February, Women24.com“Frankly, the psychological horror that is found in Shadows will make any person feel ill at ease, which means I loved it.” – Monique Snyman, Tentacle Books“If you like your horror as warped as it gets, you’ll love this genuinely scary page-turner. I’m looking forward to reading what she does next – although I suspect I’ll be reaching for the sominex afterwards.” – Something Wicked

Shirley, tell us where you were born

I was born February 7, 1960 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My family moved to Salt Lake City, Utah when I was only twelve-years-old. Though quite the culture shock, becoming a barrel racing cowgirl during my teenage years helped me to adapt to the western lifestyle. Utah is my home. I love the people and the mountains. By the way, I was die-hard Steelers football fan up until this year when I learned they signed Michael Vick as the backup quarterback to Big Ben. I’m an animal lover. All of my kids have paws and I’ve adopted them from “kill” shelters. I am so passionate about animals, I simply couldn’t support an organization that rallies around a convicted felon who tortured, maimed, and brutally killed dogs … for entertainment, no less.

Author Interview for Kim Williams-Justesen

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Kim, welcome to my YA Dark blog. What makes you passionate about writing?

I like that I’m the one in control of things, and that it isn’t done until I say it’s done (or until my editor says it’s done!).

Very nice…Do you have a writing routine?

I work full-time, so I write in the evenings and on weekends. I usually grab a handful of Chips-Ahoy cookies, a big glass of water, and head to my office. I reread the last few pages of where I left off, then I take a deep breath and dive in.

What a great scape. What is the title of your book?

My upcoming YA is called DEATH’S KISS. (more…)

Dangerous Game by Keith Morris

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

We find in Dangerous Game a thrilling book about terrorists and the Olympic games that come to Utah for the second time. This story is well done, clean and has characters who are Mormons. I recommended it to all who enjoy thrillers, detectives and don’t mind a sprinkle of Mormonism here and there. It isn’t preachy at all, nor is it a conversion tool. What it is, though, is a great reading for all readers from pre-teens to adults.

It all starts when Peter is asked by the FBI to investigate a murder in rural Utah. This results in contingency with his job as a security officer for the LDS church. He not only meets the deceased man, but also the police woman who will become his partner in this bizarre case.

Why would anyone kill a God-fearing man and call the police to tell them where his body is? Just a few days later, Peter and his partner find that that there have been other cases like this one. All the bodies had been bitten before they were killed. Are they dealing with a serial killer, or some other type of villain who doesn’t care for human life?
