About This Book
In a sleepy coastal town north of Boston, a serial killer hunts select victims. Detective Stanley Devonshire is uncovering a trail of evidence in an attempt to determine exactly how the killer has managed to continue on its horrific rampage undiscovered for what appears to be almost a century now and with the exact same pattern.
At the outset, there is no discernible thread of reason connecting the killings. So Stan enlists the help of his longtime friend from Marblehead, Detective Mark Brown. Stan is also reluctantly joined by an imposing federal agent as well as Massachusetts State Police trooper Joyce Chase, who challenges him both personally and professionally and follow him along on a journey of revelation, twist after convoluted twist. The murders at first seem to be without a pattern but slowly it becomes evident that the brutal hunter may serve a higher calling. Devonshire is certain he is close to solving the cases stacking up on his desk, but in his attempt to identify the illusive killer, will he or someone close to him become the hunter’s next prey?
The Steel Van Man has the reader holding his breath and postulating at every turn as the book weaves a story of murders committed, secrets revealed and justice sought. The reader is driven in an uncomfortable direction, a direction he might prefer to avoid.
