A heart never forgets its last beat…
In a freak collision when she was twelve, Mia Germaine faced death and
the loss of her father. A heart transplant from a young murder victim
saved her life, but not without a price. Twenty years later, chilling
nightmares about an unresolved homicide begin to plague Mia.
Compelled by these lost memories, she forms a complicated connection
to the victim—the girl killed the night of Mia’s accident—due
to a scientific phenomenon called “organ memory.”
Now suffocating beneath the weight of avenging a dead girl and catching a
serial killer on the loose dubbed the “Triangle Terror,” Mia must
dodge her own demons while unimaginable truths torment her—along
with a killer set on making her his next victim.
As Mia tries to determine if her dreams are clues or disturbing
phantasms, uninvited specters lead her further into danger’s path,
costing her the one person who can save her from herself. More than a
page-turning thriller, “A Secondhand Life” weaves a tale of
second chances and reclaimed dreams as this taut, refreshing story
ensnares and penetrates you.
sl-excerpt

I didn’t wake up one morning and randomly decide to be a killer; rather, somewhere in the recesses of my soulless being, there it was—a primal urge for blood, for manipulating life and death. Yet all the while I was unable to control my own mind. I had become an animal.

I wasn’t always a murderer, as far as I know. Born with it, or raised into it? Nature versus nurture. The question of the day. One that has baffled therapists for decades. As one of the monsters they studied, even I had no answers. Picking apart my gray matter proved fruitless.

I never tortured cats, pulled the wings off of butterflies, or watched too much graphic news. In fact, I hated what television represented, what it took from us. It stole our youth, our time, our minds. Yet our lives revolved around it. So much power granted to one inanimate object. Perhaps I was jealous.

But jealousy didn’t mutilate my soul. Something else awakened within me over time, eroding my humanity to the point where I despised what society had become. Perverted. Impure. Corrupt. It was a shame what people had turned into with the help of a malevolent social order.

And I thought I was evil.

Look around you. Look at what people do behind closed doors. Neglecting their kids. Abusing their spouses. Drinking themselves into oblivion …

They’re the ugly ones, not me.

I was their savior.

So what exactly turned me into … this? I will probably never know.

But today I challenged all theories of humanity’s innate goodness as the girl’s limp neck hung in my hands, my dirt-stained fingers wrapped around her flawless pink flesh like a snake coiled around its prey. I hadn’t planned on squeezing until she vented a terror-stricken scream, potentially spooking the neighbours and sealing my red-and-blue-flashing fate. Reflexively my hands tightened their grip, summoning Death to take its victim.

 

A Secondhand Lie:
A gripping short story thriller
(The Killer Thriller Series Book 0)
**”A Secondhand Lie” is the companion novella featuring characters
also found in the full-length standalone thriller, “A Secondhand
Life.”**
Sometimes you know things you’re not supposed to know. Things that you can
never un-know. Things that will change the course of your life…and
the fate of the ones you love.
I found her in our living room, bleeding and close to death, but alive.
Barely. Until morning stole her last breath. The media called her
killer the “Triangle Terror” … and then forgot about her. But I
never forgot—my murdered sister, and an investigation that led to
my own resurrection from the dead.
Twenty-two years ago, on a cold February night, Landon Worthington lost his
father for the last time. After an armed robbery gone wrong, evidence
and witness testimony pointed a shaky finger at Dan
Worthington—deadbeat dad and alcoholic husband. But before the dust
could settle over the conviction, Landon’s preteen sister, Alexis,
is murdered in their home, plunging Landon’s life into further
despair.
Two decades and a cold case later, Landon is dogged by guilt over their
estranged relationship and decides to confront his incarcerated
father-of-the-year about what really happened the night of the
robbery. But the years of lies are hard to unravel. And the biggest
question of all haunts him: How does everything tie into his sister’s
murder?
And so begins Landon’s journey to piece together the puzzle of secrets,
lies, and truths that can free his father, avenge his sister, and
perhaps save himself.
Pamela Crane is a professional juggler. Not the type of juggler who can toss
flaming torches in the air, but a juggler of four kids, a writing
addiction, a horse rescuer, and a book editor by trade. She lives on
the edge (ask her Arabian horse about that—he’ll tell you all
about their wild adventures while trying to train him!) and she
writes on the edge. Her characters and plots are her escape from the
real world of dirty diapers and cleaning horse stalls, and she
thrives off of an entertaining tale.
She is the author of the best-selling psychological thriller “The
Admirer’s Secret,” Amazon top 20 short story “A Fatal
Affair,” and her latest releases “A Secondhand Life”
and “A Secondhand Lie.”
