Psychological Thriller/Suspense Available For Review

Serial Vengeance
By Melissa Wren
ISBN: 978-1481870306
Published: June 2014
Genre: Psychological Thriller/Suspense
Formats Available For Review: print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers), ebook, kindle

If it were just one or two high-profile adulterers committing suicide in the heart of Washington, D.C., it wouldn’t be much of a story. But it keeps happening. And their suicide notes all say the same thing: “I deserve to die.”

Grieving her stillborn son, and reeling from the mysterious disappearance of her best friend two years prior, Olivia Penn buries herself in her work. She’s a Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter for the Washington Post, and if there’s one thing she knows, it’s the scent of a front-page story.

Olivia begins connecting the string of supposed celebrity suicides together, obsessed with breaking the story that there’s a serial killer on the loose in D.C. When the FBI takes over, Olivia knows she’s on to something and has trouble staying out of their way.

A sensational double murder ups the ante in this dangerous psychological game. It’s the first time “The Punisher” reveals himself. Thinking she has nothing to lose, Olivia baits the psychopathic killer with her news stories, putting herself in his crosshairs. Now it becomes terrifyingly personal.

Between her stalker, who is breaking into her home and leaving notes that indicate he knows something about the serial killer, and the strange connections to her best friend’s disappearance, Olivia is caught in a complicated web—and the only way out is to discover why she seems to be the common denominator in this nightmare.

As she uncovers the truth, Olivia discovers that death is closer than she realized.

Author Melissa Wren brings a background in journalism and over four years of experience living in the heart of Washington, D.C. to this dark, suspenseful, psychological thriller set among the political intrigue of the nation’s capitol. Wren lives in a quaint rock cabin off the historical town square in Granbury, Texas with her two spoiled and quirky Yorkies, Emmaline and Oliver. She’s surrounded by family, friends and books and loves dining out for Mexican food.
