When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
The only problem is, in this online classroom the students are would-be serial killers eager to learn the tricks of the trade from a master, the enigmatic Cain42.
FBI consultant Esme Stuart is struggling to stanch the doubt and fear eating away at her marriage. Now a seedy true-crime writer is dredging up the deadly confrontation that nearly destroyed her. But the link between Esme’s old enemy and this new predator is the key to the Bureau’s manhunt.
Esme knows her involvement in the case could cost her everything. Her marriage. Her daughter. Her life. But when Cain openly challenges his “students” to embark on a killing spree, she has no choice but to act—before Cain strikes another victim down…
“Mr. Corin really knows how to draw the readers in. Be warned as his books are a one seat read. Before Cain Strikes is a nail-bitter!” —Manic Readers
“Joshua Corin is a new name to watch in crime fiction. Fearless, inventive, and intuitive, his writing is incredibly self-assured.” — J.T. Ellison, bestselling author of The Cold Room
“The sequel to WHILE GALILEO PREYS is a fast-paced thriller as the audience anticipates a shoot-out at the OK Corral; in this case a bed and breakfast. The villains are psychopaths being mentored by one of the most disturbing predators in years; Professor Cain 42 teaches a lesson that ‘family values’ can be negative. Family values are also an issue for Esme and Rafe as he makes a powerful argument that she inadvertently takes her work home, endangering her family. Readers will enjoy this insightful look at how much an agent sacrifices to do her job legally with due diligence.” —Harriet Klausner
