In the horror thriller, The Silence of the Lambs, an FBI agent-in-training confides in an incarcerated former psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal 'The Cannibal' Lecter to track down another serial killer known as, Buffalo Bill, who skins his victims.
In the psychological thriller, The Bone Collector, a gifted quadriplegic ex-homicide detective, and his young forensic science female partner, comb New York City to track down a serial killer.
In the crime thriller, Seven, two detectives with divergently different personalities, hunt serial killer John Doe, whose M.O. utilizes the seven deadly sins to dispatch his victims.
All of the aforementioned epic battles pit the forces of good against the evil monsters that live among us. This is the territory the Atlanta X-Men Homicide Unit will traverse in my psychological thriller The Profiler, a prequel to Kremlin Tide and Cold Lick, coming this summer.
I believe The Profiler represents a compelling page turner in the manner of those books and films while continuing to create characterizations of redemption, courage, faith, and love alongside suspenseful, race-against-the-clock plots.
In their particular ways, police investigations and biblical ministry mean to penetrate the darkness of men's hearts. The world is full of people in, as the Bible reads "gross darkness", but I write these stories to shed light on that darkness and give us all hope that justice isn’t a mockery. I entertain, I enlighten, I educate, but I also hope to encourage us all to never give up the fight in the battle of right versus wrong, good versus evil. In these times that we live in, that quote rings truer now than it ever has before. I’ll post further developments of The Profiler in the future.
