Synopsis

RELENTLESS EXCITEMENT -- IT'S THIS SUMMER'S BLOCKBUSTER!

A war has begun and NYC’s worst nightmare is here …

June 2017. New York is suffering under the worst heatwave in centuries, but it’s the barrage of grisly murders that has city dwellers on edge. Since the homicides don’t fit a pattern, the NYPD is treating them as unrelated, but Detective Grace Jarrod isn’t so sure. Graffiti left at the crime scenes points to the crimes being linked and part of a rampage.

The delivery of a cryptogram to her precinct proves her theory correct. A group calling themselves CREEPZ takes credit for the deaths and for the war they wage. They promise not to stop until a societal revolution is achieved. Jarrod leads the investigation and goes after the madmen that strike at will and profess to kill for love. Little does she know that the group of homeless drifters is led by a genius who believes himself God.

CREEPZ is an adrenaline rush of chills, intensity, and mind-numbing suspense. A mashup of murder, CIA PsyOps programming, political sex rings, and Aleister Crowley mysticism, the elements combine to produce a non-stop thriller that’s the must-read of the season!

In 1969: it was Charles Manson. In 1977: it was the Son of Sam. In 2017: it’s New York’s newest nightmare—CREEPZ.

Teaser: Excerpt

From Chapter 1

     He wasn’t much bigger than she was. With her shoes off, he was only eye level. She could get through him … she could. Like Stacy said, he was just a little punk—a creep—one of hundreds she’d encountered before. He was only trying to scare her, but it wouldn’t work. She could handle this—if only she could move her damn feet.
     The click of the gun being cocked echoed in her head. A shiver shimmying up her spine, the filthy stranger’s grin widened as he neared and pressed the cold steel into the center of her forehead.
     “No!” she screamed.
     “Ya-yo-yes, little girl with no way to go but da-da-down.”
     “But why? Why?”
     “Because Daniel says so-so-so. It’s adios sad buh-bye time, so maybe you oughta cry.”
     “Please,” she begged as tears streamed down her face. “Please don’t kill me. I’ll give you all I have. I will!”
     “Haff to blonde hair and not much more. Me and Daniel, we’re goin’ to war, but yah-yu-you? You gonna start it!”
     Sharp laughter knocked all thoughts from her head as a paralysis overtook her.
     The man was crazy. Deranged. With no more time to think, she lunged forward, prepared to bash into him. A loud blast stopped her in her tracks and made her ears ring.
     The impact of the bullet slammed her backwards. Staggering one unwieldy step, a blinding light lit up the alley as the bullet smashed through her skull. Her brain emptied and splattered onto the back wall. Limp, a numbness overtook her.
     Was this it?
     Her eyes crossed as she fell. Looking upward at the blackened sky, her question went answered.
     She was dead before she hit the ground.

About the Author

Ruth Bainbridge was born in the idyllic, sleepy town of Ithaca, NY, and has been a lover of mysteries for her entire life. Ever since a child, she’s consumed detective stories at regular intervals, becoming enamored with all the superstars of crime. She loved matching wits with Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Thomas Pitt, Lord Peter Wimsey, Richard Jury and Edward X Delaney. In fact, she was so inspired by their brilliance that she began trying to emulate her writing idol's achievements by composing her own short stories. However, life interfered with her plans of becoming the next hopeful to try a life of crime--on paper at least. But the empty nest syndrome happened and gave her the impetus to return to her first love--murder.

Her works include: THE CURT SAVAGE MYSTERIES (a four-part series that should be read in order); DEADSPEAK, a detective Twin Peaks; and ONLY ONE WILL FALL, the first in THE NICK CROSS MYSTERIES. CREEPZ is her eighth published work. The most intense read of the season, it’s a complex adrenaline rush that’s filled with suspense.
