Exclusive Excerpt from At A Stranger’s Mercy
by Brittany Cournoyer
How many times did I have to tell the rude officer questioning me—whose name I’d completely forgotten—I didn’t know anything before he finally believed it? It was as if he wasn’t listening to a word I said to him when I explained I saw the man but didn’t commit any details to memory. I had been too creeped out and unsettled by the evilness I saw.
“Wait here. Do not move from this spot,” the officer said to me, his voice laced with the annoyance I felt.
“Yes, sir,” I mumbled and crossed my arms over my chest.
“Make sure he doesn’t go anywhere,” the officer said to another cop who was hovering around us.
I resisted the urge to roll my eyes and, instead, lowered them until I could see my shoes. Of course the one day I went against my normal routine, I managed to lock eyes with a potential murderer.
About At A Stranger’s Mercy
Making eye contact with a killer wasn’t exactly how Bradley Danforth had planned to start his day. As an accountant, he craved structure and routine. What he hadn’t anticipated was being part of a real-life murder mystery with him cast in the starring role.
Death and sorrow were part of Max Donohue’s job description, leaving the detective hardened after years on the job. On his latest case, he’s the one stuck protecting the only witness in a sadistic homicide.
One death becomes two… then three. And soon Max and Bradley find themselves playing a deadly game of cat and mouse. Can Max save Bradley from the clutches of a serial killer? Or will the killer finish what he started?
At a Stranger’s Mercy is the first installment of a continuing series featuring the same two characters. It’s a suspenseful murder mystery that depicts detailed crimes, strong language, and adult situations. While this series will include a romance, it’s a slow burn that develops throughout the series.
