"Variety is the spice of death" is the motto of William Ripp, a prolific serial killer. With more than twenty bodies buried all over the United States, Ripp considers himself to be the premier serial killer of all time because not only is he still free, killing on a whim, but his obsession as of yet has gone undetected. Ripp stumbles into the Midwestern city of La Claire, Wisconsin. As he is about to claim his twenty-third victim, he is thwarted suddenly and unexpectedly by Officer Dan McCarthy. Ripp watches in amazement as the potential victim is rescued from his clutches. This close call excites Ripp, and like a moth to the flame, he is drawn to La Claire by the thrill of a challenge as well as the sultry beauty of an exotic dancer. Can she escape his evil desires? This novel is a realistic, action-packed, can't-put-it-down police thriller. Officers Dave Compton, Dan McCarthy, Gary Carpenter, Madison Brown, Dooley, Randy Stammos and the incorrigible Stanley Brockman are "Nobody's Heroes." The best of the best are on a collision course with evil incarnate. Lives are at stake and the outcome undecided as the epic struggle continues between good and evil. Where is the place of battle? La Claire, Wisconsin. When? On Compton's Shift.
