The Sins of One Affect the Many.
Detective Hale was used to solving murders. As one of Jameson's premier detectives, he thought he had seen all that the seedy side of the city had to offer. But when he investigates a gruesome slaughter where the killer leaves an origami crane soaked in the victim’s blood, Hale knows he’s dealing with the Red Crane, a serial murderer killing seemingly random people in the city.
As Hale follows the clues to track down the elusive Red Crane, he becomes aware of how close the killer is actually getting to him. Each victim seems to have some connection to Hale, and his family could be the Crane’s next victims. Jameson is dangerous enough, but with a killer who can’t be seen, temptations that can’t be resisted, and widespread bloodshed of the innocent, the city might never recover from an evil that only Detective Hale can stop.
David N. Alderman / Author
Born at the tail end of the 70’s, David reveled in the pop culture of the 80’s and 90’s, building his childhood around the success of Star Wars, the jokes of Ace Ventura, and the adventure of The Goonies. His passion for writing began in the early 90’s, and he finished his first novel when he was 16. With the death of his grandmother - who was his biggest fan - he stopped writing and sought adventure, traveling constantly between California and Arizona as he fought to find a purpose while also walking the long-winding, and incredibly narrow, trail of faith.
Decades later, David finds himself here in Arizona, happily married, with a son to raise, and a long road of written stories behind him.
