Currently working on a highly charged thriller:
When a woman kills…
Devina Huntington is a female serial killer. Lacking empathy, Devina murders simply because she can and she derives pleasure from killing. As a seductress, Devina lures men to murder for her and with her.
Trained as a Special Operatives Executive during the Second World War, Devina Huntington is an effective killer, who’s lust for death continues after the war. In the brief lull between her crimes, her collection of ears and need for morphine sustains her.
Set against the backdrop of the wealthy glamour and constraints of the 1950s, Devina’s unusual morals stand out, but will she always be an undiscovered serial killer? Will her memories haunt her now? Coming forty and with her inheritance and life-style under threat, will she slip up? When a woman can kill…. will she ever be a victim again?
