FIRST KISS from Murder Most Foul 
by JoAnne Myers

Smiling, while descending the staircase in her white satin pajamas, she said, “I can't sleep, anyway. I prepared dinner, but the food is cold and the beer is warm.”

Dropping wearily into an overstuffed chair, Agent Harmon pulled Jackie onto his lap. He nuzzled her neck, stroked her arms, then her long, slim legs, and whispered, “As soon as I solve this case, I'll treat you to a five-course meal. I swore off love when I became a Federal Agent, but, honey, I can't leave town without you.” Kissing more and more passionately, they drifted into lovemaking for the first time. 


When two dismembered and unidentifiable torsos wash up on a local riverbank, beautiful 29-year-old registered nurse Jackie Reeves, believes the killer is a man from her past with a history of mental problems. She contacts the dangerously handsome 34-year-old FBI Special Agent Walker Harmon, who arrives in the sleepy town of Pleasant Valley, and met with a reception of lies and threats from local police and citizens. Under constant pressure from both the media and public, along with taunting messages aimed at Agent Harmon and Jackie from person's unknown, the agent races against time to catch the killer before he strikes again, and before an innocent man is convicted. With a suspect list involving the victims' parents, ex-lovers, Satanists, a contaminated crime scene, corrupt police, and the motorcycle gang the Devil's Disciples, circumstances turn the hunt personal, as the hunters become the prey.

This looks like an intense sort of mystery. Dismembered bodies and serial killers are scary. Sounds like a story to read on a stormy knight with your back against the wall.
I wish you every success.
