THE SERIAL CHEMIST – A New Psychological Thriller Novel

Now Available in eBook and Paperback Formats

The Serial Chemist plot has been one that I developed a couple of years ago and evolved it over time with the help of two psychologist experts and with the help of individuals knowledgeable in forensics and law enforcement.

Taking the time to evolve a logical, believable plot scenario that elicits both outrage and sympathy for a villain was my goal. I hope you enjoy this thriller novel as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I love writing about the Rosie Young/Vince Mendez dynamic detective duo and love that I place them in sometimes impossible crime-solving situations. There is yet another novel in process with Rosie and Vince in the spotlight for next year, and already it promises to be great.


Emile and his brother Cecil live a calm, predictable adult existence. Everything is orderly and without disruption, when suddenly it isn’t. With the death of their mother and the loss of her guiding wisdom, Emile finds it increasingly more difficult to keep the promise to keep his brother safe.

In their most challenging of cases to date, Detectives Rosie Young and partner Vince Mendez embark on a race against time to stop one of San Antonio’s most cunning murderers, a villain with a particular talent to strike and kill but leave only pristine crime scenes in his wake. With the help of clinical psychologist Dr. Chris Parker, Rosie and Vince journey into the mind of a serial killer to understand exactly what type of monster roams their city targeting dads of small boys.

The question both detectives and Dr. Parker must answer is what emotional baggage creates a deranged mind that suddenly transitions to cunning killer and eludes the best of police forensics. Scant crime scene evidence and a mounting body count spur Rosie and Vince to use every tool at their disposal to pursue the perpetrator before he kills again.

If you like Dexter, Breaking Bad, Criminal Minds or The Mentalist, you will LOVE The Serial Chemist.
