Book Excerpt

Police Lieutenant Mike Sheridan walked over to the victim lying in the running path. He looked down and saw that the head was completely blown away as if a bomb had been detonated in the victim's mouth. Sticking out of the chest was a long handled axe completely covered with blood. "Holy Mother of God ,"he muttered softly, as he threw up all over his own shoes.
