Detective Riley Finn Novels

Follow Detective Finn as she uses her gift to track and capture EVIL.
Riley and Jason return from their honeymoon rejuvenated and excited to begin their new life phase. Newlywed bliss is quickly shattered when a mysterious gift and a series of explosions send them on a wild chase to stop a serial bomber.
Evil is drawn to Riley and it’s not long before the bomber interrupts her life in an extreme and personal fashion in order to make his demands known. Riley’s survival depends on her gift for seeing and hearing evil, but the bomber’s aura keeps alternating from transparent to violet. She can only hear his thoughts when he’s transparent. For the first time in her career, she’s completely vulnerable and at the mercy of a psychopath.
SCU utilizes every resource available to find the bomber, but they still know very little about him other than he calls himself Beast. With time and clues running out, Riley goes back inside the mind of a young serial killer she put away years earlier. A few more pieces of the puzzle fall into place. With hundreds of lives hanging in the balance Riley knows drastic measures are required. On a wing and a prayer, she risks everything to stop the Beast.
“Hello Detective Finn, how does your garden grow?”
When a serial killer with a fondness for dark nursery rhymes takes an interest in Detective Riley Finn, she quickly finds herself pulled into a twisted guessing game where facts and fantasy become blurred.
As the Gardener slowly infiltrates every aspect of Detective Finn’s life, dropping hints about her past, Finn falls deeper and deeper into his rabbit hole of riddles and half-truths. Each time she gets closer to the Gardener, he gifts her with another dead body.
Determined to learn what secrets he holds, Detective Finn ventures inside a mind of pure evil where she stumbles upon the disturbing truth hidden among his evil thoughts.
Detective Finn is again chasing down evil. With the Gardener case still fresh on everyone's mind, no one is ready for another serial killer, especially not one stealing newborns and discarding the mothers. In the dark underground of black market adoptions, the taker of children is called the Piper.
As the bodies begin to stack up, Riley and her team must go to drastic measures in order to catch the Piper.
In this 2nd installment of the Detective Riley Finn Novels, Riley's gift is tested to the limits with fallout she never anticipated.
