The Boy Next Door
by Chris Loken
The Boy Next Door is a riveting suspense novel, part compelling police procedural, part haunting portrait of the mind of a psychosexual serial killer. The final confrontation between the accused and a tough prison psychologist is as chilling as the crimes themselves.
Come Monday Mornin'
by Chris Loken
Come Monday Mornin' tells of one lost weekend in Russ Simpson's life, hazy with alcohol but charged with emotion. It is a compelling, gut-level novel about a member of the real middle-america, confused and hurt by his changing society, unable to articulate his need, lost in the aftermath of the American Dream. You'll be left stunned by its amazing conclusion.
