You’ve been punched in the face. You’re disoriented. Everything’s a blur. The killer throws you into a body bag and zips you up inside.
What will you do?
Zoelle Spencer is divorced and looking for love. While working as a water fitness instructor at the local rec center, she meets several eligible bachelors including a handsome firefighter and several men in the Corvette club. One of them is a serial killer and has his sights set on her.
Every five years, Franklin Wayne Bannock hunts for a new “Mary Beth” to torture, kill, and encase in a heavy-duty body bag for induction into his Forever Breathless collection. Two weeks before the class of 1975 was slated to graduate from high school, Wayne committed his first murder by killing the secret love of his life, Mary Beth Huntsman. Shortly thereafter, he moved. After changing his name and altering his appearance, in the spring of 1981 he returned to his hometown to celebrate his first murder with a ritualistic killing of a woman he named Mary Beth, 1981.
Intelligent and charismatic, for thirty-five years Bannock has eluded law enforcement and believes he will never be caught. With his fortieth class reunion just around the corner, he’s on the prowl for his next victim, Mary Beth, 2016.
Bannock is particular about his Mary Beths. He seeks an attractive single woman about his same age. She must have long auburn hair, work at a job dealing with the public, and be easily manipulated by flattery. Zoelle Spencer fits his criteria.
Could the killer be operating as Glenn Fischer, aka Mr. April the firefighter calendar hunk? Joe Davenport, the sexiest single man west of the Mississippi? The rec center’s resident pervert, Willard Kent? Or one of the dashing men in the Corvette club?
Will Zoelle find true love … or become Forever Breathless?
