TRUE CRIME - TRUE LOVE MEMOIR

TRUE CRIME
TRUE LOVE MEMOIR

“Exquisitely woven thriller…compelling…escalates from ‘just another ordinary day at the office’ to a shocking and terrifying crescendo as the psychopathic antagonist spreads fear and terror…this is ‘Ghost’ meets ‘Psycho’.”

Rick Smith, author “How to Master  Self-Hypnosis in a Weekend”

“Captivates from page one…brutal crime coupled with tender romance…deep spiritual connection with love of her life…convincing, emotionally satisfying.”

Rosemary Mild, mystery and memoir author

“Angel Hero is alive with feeling, both sexual and spiritual. By turns vivid and gritty, ethereal and romantic, this exquisite book tells a love story that evokes laughter, tears, and wonder in equal measure.”

Elaine Madison, Ph.D.
Professor of Literature, Hawaii Pacific University, playwright
