“A masterpiece of thriller and mystery! The author did a magnificent job developing characters with a psychological side that is so well described that we feel inside their minds, follow their fears and cheer for their success.

--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Once Gone) 

ONCE FORSAKEN is book #7 in the bestselling Riley Paige mystery series, which begins with the #1 bestseller ONCE GONE (Book #1)—a free download with over 700 five star reviews! 

When Special Agent Riley Paige finally decides to take a well-needed rest from the FBI, a request for help comes from the most unlikely source: her own daughter. April’s best friend is devastated by the death of her sister, a freshman at Georgetown. Worse, she is convinced that the suicide was staged, and that her sister was murdered at the hands of a serial killer.

Riley reluctantly looks into the case, only to discover that two other freshman girls at Georgetown recently killed themselves in the same grotesque way—by hanging. As she realizes foul play may be afoot, she brings in the FBI. The case takes Riley deep into the privileged campus of one of the world’s most esteemed universities, into the unsettling world of the wealthy and driven families that pushed their children to succeed. In time she discovers that this case is far more twisted than it seems—and that she just may be up against the most psychotic killer of her career. 

A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, ONCE FORSAKEN is book #7 in a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night. 

Book #8 in the Riley Paige series will be available soon.

Both women try to reconcile their problematic family lives – Olivia’s issues with her teenage children, Lauren’s collapsing marriage – with the demands of a job that requires heart and soul. Their beat is a decaying coastal town in the south of England – a shadow of its Victorian glory – and criminals are lurking even where you’d least expect them.

    Meet Hell's hottest new intern.  
    Nessa has no magic licence, no money, and no choice but to take up an apprenticeship in Hell. Working for her old friend Satan isn't so bad – Hell, it turns out, is a lot like Las Vegas. Well, except for the dungeons out back which Nessa is forbidden from visiting. 
    Trouble is, Nessa thinks there might be someone in those dungeons who has what she wants: information. Maybe they can tell her why everyone from Satan to The Department of Magic and Death to the annoying (to put it mildly) poltergeist Ed is so interested in her abilities. 
    When a goblin turns up dead in Hell – a problem, since he didn’t arrive that way – Nessa needs to find out who killed him. Murder is not good for tourism, after all, and if the matter is not cleared up quickly, Satan might just lose her cool. 
    And let's be honest, that won’t end well for anybody. 
    It’s Hell like you’ve never seen it before! If you enjoy funny paranormal mysteries, this series is for you. Download now to join Nessa on her adventures in the underworld.

    Crime happens, even in small towns like North Bend, but when Amber Monroe and her fellow detectives from the Washburn County Sheriff’s Office are called to the home of a retired forensic psychiatrist, they find a macabre murder scene that would rival any Halloween horror film. 
    When a local EMT and a former deputy go missing that same week, law enforcement conclude there has to be a link between the three cases. With no clues to guide them, the detectives are stumped until they begin a search through old court files. 
    New information emerges that could break the case wide open, but when the names on the perpetrator’s kill list are revealed, apprehending him is all that matters. His intentions have become more than personal and crystal clear. Washburn County’s finest may be next, and they don’t have the luxury of time on their side. 
    Note:All Amber Monroe books are standalone stories but since characters carry over, they are best read in chronological order.

    Editorial Review: 
    “At the sheriff’s office in Washburn County, Wisconsin, newly promoted Detective Amber Monroe and her partner are assigned to investigate a suspected dog-fighting ring, but their work is interrupted by news that a retired forensic psychiatrist has been found brutally murdered. The possible dog-fighting case goes on the back burner, the sheriff’s office watches the body count rise, and their only clues are the threatening letters being mailed to the victims from several states away. C. M. Sutter deftly picks up the pace in this second installment in her Amber Monroe Crime Thriller series, and readers will find themselves racing to keep up with Amber and her fellow officers as this tale hurtles to its pulse-pounding conclusion.” Angela M., Editor, Red Adept Editing
