MURDER REPLETE...for now

An Oregon Coast

O'Toole/Starker murder mystery


Color and Words

by Georgia Cockerham

A man found hanging in a usually serene Oregon forest sends the town of Brookings into a panic and brings detectives Patty O'Toole and Rick Starker running.  Who is he?  What has he done to be murdered in such a way?  Uncovering the answers proves to be more complex than they first expect.  The man's past looks like a promising lead, but no sooner do they discover possible motives in his history when they learn of another death.  Do the similarities lead back to the same twisted mind?  As the body count mounts, the detectives realize that they could be dealing with their very first serial killer.  One who is always watching...

A young woman living alone is found dead in her home when the police do a routine welfare check.  Detectives O'Toole and Starker barely begin investigating when an older couple is found bound and murdered.  Are the murders related?  With little to go on, they appeal to other agencies and learn that similar crimes are being committed further up the coast.  What do all these victims have in common?  As clues emerge reflecting a calculated murder scheme, the detectives fear the worst and seek help from multiple law enforcement agencies in more than one state.
