"There are only a handful of authors in the world who can craft true suspense, and Billie Sue Mosiman is one of the best." C. Terry Cline, Jr., author of REAPER
WIREMAN, a classic suspense novel originally published by PaperJacks and later reprinted by Leisure Books, now in digital print for the e-reader. Edgar-Nominated Billie Sue Mosiman is the author of more than 50 books.
The killer in the night.
He waited in the shadows, a dark and deadly presence. He was no novice at this terrible trade--he had struck before and he would strike again. And with each new killing he became less human...and more vicious.
He stood patiently, a wire garrote in his strong hands, ready to claim yet another victim. Soon he would have one more to add to his growing list unless they could stop him. But how could they when they didn't know who he was? What he was? To a terrified city he was known only as the Wireman.
Set in the 1970s, two brothers return from the Vietnam war with blood on their hands. Learning to kill the enemy wasn't something that would go away when they returned home to Houston, Texas. Could one of them be the serial killer, Wireman? Could the other stop him?
Jack DeShane is a young rookie cop. The Wireman took his son's life and left Jack destroyed and bereft. They took him off the case; he was too involved. Yet Jack is relentless, going on the streets at night interviewing people, hunting for clues, looking for anything that will give them a break in the case. He'll never give up and he'll find his son's murderer if it's the last thing he ever does.
Loosely based on true crimes that occurred in Houston, Texas in 1978-80.
