Acerca de


As a violent storm rages over the small town of Winter's End, Sheriff Townsend comes upon a chilling scene - a young man, knives in his hands and the body of a woman at his feet. The enigmatic suspect refuses to answer questions, and, bizarrely, there is no forensic evidence to link him to the crime. So Townsend calls Alex Rourke back to his sleepy home town in north-eastern Maine. After an absence of 20 years, Rourke - ex-FBI interrogator turned PI - is an expert in murderous minds. But as a sense of evil descends upon the town, Rourke soon realizes he is an integral part of the killer's game. A game that is not yet over...

From the Author:

You catch a guy at the scene of a brutal murder with the weapons in his hands – pretty open and shut. But what if you can’t actually prove he did it? What if he won’t even tell you his name? If you don’t know who he is, how can you ever know why he did what he did?

Dealing with all these questions is the job of Alex Rourke, returning to his home town for the first time in seventeen years at the request of the police. As he struggles to unravel the stranger’s reasons for killing, and his reasons for picking the tiny town of Winter’s End, Alex is forced to face the ghosts of his own past and those of his sleepy town before they can overwhelm the present.

In writing Winter’s End, I wanted to create a group of complex yet very human characters in a setting and story with a very definite gothic slant and a genuinely creepy atmosphere, somewhere the lines between perception and reality could be blurred, just a little.

Welcome to Winter’s End. I hope you enjoy your stay.

- John R.
