Riverside, CA, November 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- For author Debra Mares, domestic violence and murder are not only topics for her crime novels. While watching her debut legal thriller "The Mamacita Murders" in 2012 rise to Amazon Kindle's top 100 legal thrillers, Debra was busy by day handling parole hearings of convicted murderers while writing by night. The result was her newest crime thriller, "The Suburban Seducción," which is scheduled to launch October 28, 2013, where she brings us up close to The White Picket Fence killer Lloyd Gil. It's a world that the author has experienced up close — since 2004, Debra has been a county prosecutor in Riverside, California, an hour east of Downtown Los Angeles.
Here's the setup…
Young, handsome and manipulating, Lloyd Gil earns his living for he and his wife as a traveling software account executive. Everything appears perfect on the outside until police reopen a ten-year-old murder case in Gil's neighborhood. Gil is quickly reminded of his sexually deviant past, which lead to the death of Annabelle Phillips, a young, beautiful, educated and pregnant housewife. Gil remains confident he will stay under the police radar, but once another suburban housewife turns up dead, he finds himself at the heart of the investigation in both murders.
To help in his defense, Gil enlists his estranged step-brother, a high-profile attorney while quickly earning notoriety as the "White Picket Fence Killer." When he meets another potential victim Eva Flores, she is instantly seduced by Gil, but torn because of his abusive ways that remind her of her childhood. Eva uses psychological games to try to save her own life and "fix" Gil, who harbors a rage he can't even begin to understand.
Blending non-stop thrill and courtroom drama with a keen sense of the criminal justice system, "The Suburban Seducción" explores how far a person will push the limits of justice. It raises important questions about in utero domestic violence and whether it can manifest in rage over time - or worse - murder. As first in a series of legal thrillers, "The Suburban Seducción" featuring Lloyd Gil, will ask you to decide whether a murderer can ever be redeemed.
