Title: Blood Trails

Detective Roger Colby through he ended serial killer Morgan Laird’s murderous spree 28 years ago when Laird was sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison. But Colby soon finds out that nothing is certain in today’s ever-changing society. The wheelchair bound criminal has been released from prison and granted parole. But is it coincidence that a new series of homicides has suddenly begun, identically mirroring Laird’s brutal series of murders from the past? As Colby reluctantly joins a federal task force investigating these new crimes, he begins to uncover a new and sinister plot so unthinkable that it virtually defies belief. When Morgan Laird’s DNA is recovered from the scene of one of the recent murders, Colby realizes that the unthinkable has suddenly become reality. Shunned by the task force and without support, Colby knows he must trace his new blood tail to its source and bring these new and brutal crimes to a stop, regardless of the consequences.

Title: Getting Taken

While freelance writer Robyn Guthrie settles into her new home, which came with a few surprises, she learns her mother Lizzie, drama queen of Dryden Manor Assisted Living, has one of her own—a new boyfriend, Lionel. When he dies suddenly, leaving a pulp fiction novel in Lizzie’s care, Robyn and Lizzie soon realize he was not all he appeared to be. Lionel's mysterious past is buried in the book along with a last, desperate clue that may lead to the location of an expressionist masterpiece missing since World War II. Aided by a handsome art historian, Robyn and Lizzie attempt to decipher the clues, unaware that someone else has joined the race—a cold-blooded killer whose raison d’etre is the revenge he has sought for more than sixty years.



Me 2

Author: D.C. Brod

I was born quite a while ago. Sometime around the middle of the last century. Before President Kennedy was assassinated but after the bomb fell on Hiroshima.

I grew up in LaGrange, Illinois. It was a good place to grow up.

I attended two Beatles concerts. Didn’t hear much at either.

My husband, Don, and I live in St. Charles, Illinois. The Fox River runs through it. Nice place to live. Two cats live with us: Skye and Jura. My husband likes the convenience of cats. He is allergic to them, so he gets props for agreeing to two in the house. (The deal was two cats or one dog.)

Strangest thing I’ve ever done: jump out of a perfectly good airplane (with a parachute). Six times. Enough to know there were better ways (for me) to have fun.

Better ways to have fun: cooking dinner for family and friends, Chicago theater, the Cubs, traveling, listening to the rain while I’m reading. … I hope I’m nowhere near finished finding favorites.
