get-attachment (2)Devil’s Nightmare (Book 1)

Detective Aaron Sanders’ abilities and fortitude are put to the test when he investigates a brutal double-homicide where a boy’s parents are found mutilated inside their home. The boy is the only witness to the crime and his clothes are stained with his parents’ blood. His clothes are also tainted with the blood of other victims from a separate and even more horrific crime scene at a nearby cemetery. All of the victims appear to have been killed in the same manner and the boy knows the true identity of the evil responsible for the multiple deaths, but he is unwilling to talk. No one would believe him. A threat on the boy’s life and a disturbing nightmare causes Detective Sanders to question his beliefs and his own sanity. This investigation ultimately leads Sanders in a fight to save himself and the life of an orphaned boy from an unimaginable evil that is spawned from the curse of the Devil’s Nightmare.

Sequel to the Amazon bestselling horror Devil’s Nightmare, Robert Pruneda brings fans of the first novel another horrific thriller full of twists, chills, and a shocking conclusion. Two years have passed since Aaron Sanders retired from the Austin Police Department after what the media has called The Saint Hedwig Massacre. He moves his family out of the capital city to start a new life as a small town cop in Lost Maples, Texas, where the population count is updated more often than the murder rate. That bit of reputation is about to change when Aaron is once again caught in the middle of a mysterious investigation that has an eerie familiarity. This time, however, he is certain what is responsible for the violent deaths . . . Or is he? Evil knows no boundaries and it is up to Aaron to figure out how to protect the residents of his community, and his family, from becoming its next victims.

** Now available on Amazon (US), Amazon (UK) **

Paperback coming soon to Barnes & Noble.

Guest Author: Caleb Pirtle III and Secrets of the Dead

SecretsOfThe-LowerPixSYNOPSIS:

Ambrose Lincoln is one of the government’s prized operatives, a trained assassin, a man whose past is continually erased by mind control tactic and shock treatments.

His days have no meaning. He no longer fears death. As far as he is concerned, a man without a memory is a man who’s already dead.

From Germany come rumors of a mad man threatening to rule Europe and maybe the world. On the Night of Broken Glass, his browns shirts and storm troopers move into Baden-Baden and begin their methodical termination of the Jews.

In America, so far away, the violence is nothing more than a protest over a Jewish boy who murdered a German diplomat because the Third Reich had removed and maybe killed his family. It was simply a case of vandalism that got out of hand. No one is concerned, and the American government wants to keep it that way. No one in Washington wants to go to war with Hitler, and President Roosevelt continues to preach neutrality.

But word is leaked that one Jewish photographer took pictures of the rampage of brutality and murder that night. He was killed, but his daughter is in hiding with the film. Ambrose Lincoln is dispatched to Baden-Baden with one charge. Find the film and bring it back. It will tell the truth. It will uncover the lies. The photographs will reveal to the world the sadistic threat that exists for everyone if Hitler’s mad march isn’t stopped. His mission is to uncover the deadly secrets that his own government doesn’t want him to find, secrets that can change history.

Amazon Review:

Caleb Pirtle’s Secrets of the Dead offers every element you want in a thriller. There is espionage involved with those early days of hostilities in Germany that led to World War II. It is full of suspense.

It is a wild thrill ride. It even has a touch of romance between a tormented American operative and a Jewish girl on the brink of forever losing her way of life. Nothing in the story is ever as it seems. Just when you think you have it all figured out, you realize you don’t. The plot takes another turn that you didn’t see coming. Ambrose Lincoln is on a mission.

Those in Germany want to kill him. And back home, the government wants him dead. He has no idea who his friends are and has doubts that he even has any friends. There are some novels that are unforgettable. This is one of them.

Female Serial Killer Reminds Us that Violence is Nothing New

blogpost1Even though it sometimes seems that the 24-hour news cycle is fed primarily by grim stories of violence and the ugly side of human nature, we know that such behavior did not start the moment CNN took to the air. There have been sick individuals who have been committing awful acts against those around them since people first came in contact with one another. Jack the Ripper managed to do some heinous acts before the days of the internet. And if you go back in time even further, you will find someone who still holds the record for number of murders committed by a woman.

Countess Elizabeth Bathory lived four hundred years ago as a noblewoman and ruler over a part of Slovenia. In addition to her work in governance, following the death of her husband she apparently had a mental breakdown and went on to torture and kill somewhere between 100 and 650 girls from surrounding villages. (I would guess there were some psychological issues at play prior to her husband’s death.)

It is unclear why Bathory focused her evil acts on girls and young women, but the rumor is she believed that she could maintain youthful-looking skin by bathing in the blood of virgin girls.

The countess was never convicted of her crimes, even though the servants who helped her were tortured and burned at the stake, but she was walled into her castle and forced to live out her days in isolation.

When we watch the nightly news and see report after report of violence taking place across the globe, it is easy to think the world is a more evil and dangerous place than ever before. But history shows us that serial killers and torture and depravity are, sadly, nothing new.

What do you think? Is the world more violent and filled with people intending evil than in previous generations, or are we just more aware of these events as technology shrinks our world?

This has been a project in the works for some time now. It has been a fantastic experience working with an incredible group of people who made my vision and thriller series come to life. I felt that film short came right out of my books.

I wish to extend a whole-hearted thank you to Andy Palmer of Petri Entertainment who made my vision and books come to life. I could not have imagined this novel film short without his expertise in directing and editing.

Directed by Andy Palmer, Petri Entertainment

Cast: Kim Poirier and Carlos Alazraqui
