Kurzbeschreibung

"Billie Sue Mosiman's novels are edge-of-the-seat all the way!" Ed Gorman, award winning author of BAD MOON RISING.

"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

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?

Loosely based on true crimes which occurred in Houston, Texas in 1978-80.

A suspense thriller by Edgar-Nominated author, Billie Sue Mosiman.

Synopsis

A sadistic serial killer called the "Wireman" paralyzes an entire city with fear, as he garrotes one victim after another.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant look into true horror-a man's mind 26. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
When Nick was ten and Daley was eight, the Ringer siblings knew they were different from other families. Their mother was an abusive drunk, who earned a living selling her body. Her actions made her children the Bloomington, Texas town's pariahs. Daley always hung in the shadows, ready to protect Nick from himself. He would lie for his older brother in order to provide him with an alibi. Nick's forte was to strangle his tormentors' pets because misery was miserable company.
In Nam, Nick and Daley served as Recon Officers. However, when the siblings were separated from their squad, they were trapped deep in Cong territory. In order to survive, Nick had to use the garrote to make a quiet kill of his enemy. When they were rescued, Nick had a breakdown and was hospitalized. He remained confined in the mental ward until Daley returned home. The brothers move to Houston at the same time that someone is decapitating the heads of innocent people, using an MO similar to Nick's Nam experience.
WIREMAN is a taut thriller that keeps the reader on edge from the first page till the novel is finished. This type of book is the true horror novel because the monster is a human, who preys on anyone without the slightest shred of remorse. Billie Sue Mosiman captures the essence of the sociopath so well, readers will buy extra locks to secure their homes in order to gain a slightly disturbed sleep. Fans of realistic horror tales, need to read WIREMAN, one of the sub-genre's best of 1997.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Got my Wireman back! 8. Januar 2012
Von Franklin E. Wales - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I've been a fan of Mosiman for years (readers of my novel Gamemaster already know that!) She is not one of those authors whose work shows up at the supermarket check out, but rather the hidden gem you can't wait to tell your friends about, because you know they will thank you for it. I remember buying this in trade paperback somewhere in 98 I think (loaned it to one of those "friends" and never got it back) I recently reread the story on it's ebook edition and am happy to say it hasn't lost a bit of it's razor edge. Taunt fiction you could get a paper cut from and enough tension to raise your blood pressure a few notches. Mosiman shows us true horror by forcing us to look at the human monster within us all! Bravo Billie Sue and thanks for making this available again!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Most Chilling Tale Ever Read! 21. März 2012
Von Jeffrey Kosh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book as a gift from the author.

I'm a fan of the genre, so I could be biased here, yet I must admit being surprised by such a masterpiece. I knew Billie Sue Mosiman as en excellent author of supernatural stories, but I didn't know the `true' dark side of her.

As a `Sladist' (a fan of Michael Slade's thrillers, that is), I'm into this kind of literature by the `80s. I'm an avid reader of Val McDermid, Thomas Harris, and lately, Jeff Lindsay. Nonetheless, Wireman reminded me the early Robert Bloch, with its elegant prose and suspense-rising crescendo.
This psychological thriller really hits on your nerves, having your reading experience being like a spook-house: a shock after another.
Her killer makes my Axel J. Hyde (Feeding the Urge) look tame.

Billie Sue Mosiman story is a page-turner of the highest order and was able to let me turn aside a novel from a far-famed author (I'm not going to say his name, for obvious reasons) just to rush to the ending.

Thriller fans, here's the greatest choice for a new adventure into the genre, and we must be thankful to Mrs. Mosiman for transposing this masterpiece on Kindle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Dark and Full Of Fear 26. April 2012
Von Jenn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Wireman is a book about a serial killer like no other. How are the police supposed to understand the mind of a serial killer that has no pattern. This book reaches into the darkness and plays on quite a few fears that each of us have, the main one being, are we ever safe.
This book will have your emotions going in so many different directions that it just adds to the suspense and over all fear that you are left with till the very end. This is a must read book for any horror reader or anyone who loves a good dark mystery.
Billie Sue Mosiman has such a wonderful way of making all of her characters so real to the readers that you cannot help but to be pulled into every sentence of the book.
Thank you Billie Sue for all you do!!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not for the faint of heart 10. April 2012
Von Sheila - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This was a real revelation about the training of the special forces when there is a mental issue also involved. It made me think more about what we put our servicemen through and how we expect them to handle their lives when they enter the real world after combat. I enjoyed the book. It was very suspenseful and had a nice twist at the end.
