It’s estimated that there are at least twenty to thirty active serial killers in the United States at any given time. There’s one on the loose on the west side of Cincinnati.

 It’s the week of Halloween and Ann Kern struggles with several issues. Her primary concern is her marriage which, like her west side neighborhood, is in jeopardy. Her husband is drinking heavily and his behavior toward her is erratic. One minute, he’s the kind, loving man she married and, the next minute, he’s cold and cruel.
 
Ann dismisses a psychic’s warning that she is in danger. But, when she receives a series of ominous biblical quotes, she grows nervous and suspicious of everyone, including her own husband.
 
As the bizarre and frightening events unfold, Ann discovers a handmade tombstone marked with her name, pushing her close to the edge. Will she be the Westwood Strangler’s next victim?
 


Excerpt

She heard the sirens the second she stepped onto the porch. She hated the sound; it evoked too many bad memories.

As she hurried down the steps and into the yard, anxious to see what was going on, the wails got progressively louder, coming closer and closer. She couldn’t tell which direction the cries were coming from but she was sure that something bad had happened to someone.

She looked up and down the tree-lined street but couldn’t see any flashing lights or emergency vehicles. Abruptly, the screams stopped. It was almost as if they’d never existed, as if she’d imagined hearing them. Everything seemed normal again.



Professional Reviews

Exciting Mystery Thriller
"Fans of Mary Higgins Clark will greet this novel with enthusiasm. Like Clark in her early classic mystery/suspense novel A Stranger Is Watching, Gligor creates a frightening world for a sympathetic protagonist. Ann Kern, loving wife and mother, is surrounded by threats. Her husband, an alcoholic and a gambler, is emotionally unstable. There is also a serial killer on the prowl on the west side of Cincinnati and it appears that Ann is intended to be his next victim. There are a number of possible suspects. Author Gligor thoroughly develops each character in the novel, going into back stories, thoughts, behavior and actions. But this does not slow the plot which develops at a fast pace. Definitely a novel the reader will not put down until the final words are read."
Jacqueline Seewald, author of Death Legacy


A character-centered mystery
Ann Kern's life sucks! A husband who drinks, money problems, problems at school with the kids, creepy neighbors, an obnoxious mother-in-law...oh yeah, there's a strangler on the loose. I generally like to read a series in order, but in this case I read book 3, Desperate Deeds first. That book alludes to past problems in this family, but I had no idea! This is an interesting book that plays on the tensions between characters to create suspense and draw you into the mystery. The Cincinnati setting is well-drawn, as are the main characters, and the troubles they face. This is a quick read that keeps you guessing to the end. And, as with any series, when you start with book 1 you know there's more to come! You'll want to read those too.
Author, Anna Burke


A Unique Mystery
Patricia has crafted a unique mystery. Being a mystery lover, I've read a lot of them, but I've never read one quite like this. Her character development is superb. Without giving anything away, let me just say that I would have never guessed who the murderer was. Great job, Patricia. I just bought, Unfinished Business, because I have got to find out what happens next.
Author, Evelyn Cullet
