“Sure to engross fans of Connelly, Patterson, and Coben.” – Dave Edlund, USA Today best-selling author of the Peter Savage novels.

Paul Dodge is ready to return to his normal job as a Parole Agent in Virginia after a much-needed-and not very restful-personal hiatus. When a local street woman is found dead, he’s assigned to work the case despite his personal objections.

Working outside his normal expertise under a boss he isn’t sure he can trust, and with
a new team, Dodge tries to make the best of the bad situation. The sooner the
case is closed, the sooner he can get back to his parole work rather than
poking his nose into the life of a serial killer.

With the killer growing in confidence and an old flame back in town, Dodge’s personal
and professional lives get tested and tangled. When accusations fly and
tensions rise, time is running out for Dodge to find justice for the victims
and stop a psychopath before the body count rises again.

The Savior is the third book in the Paul Dodge series, however, each book in this thrilling detective series can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone as well as in publication order.

An Excerpt from The Savior:

Sarah’s eyes looked down at the table. The corners of her lips turned down; frown wrinkles exposed. He couldn’t blame her for the indignation in her tone. The man was a first-class mope. Not too many, if anyone, would lose sleep over his demise. But that didn’t matter. It was the task force’s job, therefore Dodge’s job, to find out what happened and bring justice to the victims, no matter how despicable the dead may have been in life.

“May I have some water,
please?” she asked.

Dodge nodded and stepped out
into the hall, leaving the door wide open, and filled a paper cup from a water
cooler parked outside in the hall. He handed Sarah the cup and she took a long
drink. Then another. The disgust eased its grip on her face. The frown lines
diminished. She was becoming more comfortable with him.

“Let’s continue from when you
entered the office. What did you see? Was the door open?”

“At first, I couldn’t see
anything. It wasn’t open, just cracked a little. Just enough to show where it
was in the wall. I tried to peek through the slit but couldn’t see anything.
So, I pulled a little more. Real slow. I didn’t want to wake him if he was
sleeping in there.”

“Once you were able to see
in, what is the first thing you noticed?” Dodge asked.

“There was a smell in the
air. It was heavy. You could taste it when you breathed in,” she said. “Have
you ever put a penny in your mouth?”

“No,” Dodge answered.

“When I was younger, some of
the girls I used to hang out with said you could beat a breathalyzer test if
you put a penny in your mouth right before blowing in the tube. So, I tried it
once,” Sarah said.

“Did it work?”


Dodge paused for a second
before continuing. Not wanting to get off subject, but also trying to keep her
talking. “Did you get a ticket?”

The young girl’s head
dropped, and her eyes settled on the table in front of her. She rung her hands.

“No. He wasn’t interested in
giving me a ticket.”

As an experienced law
enforcement officer, Dodge knew well that sometimes officers take advantage of
young women in trouble. Renquest worked a case once where the suspect turned
out to be a sheriff’s deputy from a neighboring county. He had been forcing
young girls to sleep with him instead of giving them tickets for minor traffic
violations and misdemeanor drug possession. Sexual misconduct among officers
was something he had no patience for. But that was for another day.

“You were talking about the
smell in the air?”

“Yeah. It was like having
that penny in my mouth again.”

Dodge pressed on. Diverting
the conversation back to the case.

“What did you see next?”

“Him lying on the floor. His
eyes stared at me. Through me. Then I saw her. It looked like she was sleeping.
But her eyes. Her eyes were almost purple. It was haunting. That’s how I knew
she was dead.”
