The Bigler County Collection contains three psychological thrillers by Jo Robertson set in northern California's fictional Bigler County. The trilogy is a loosely-connected series, the books of which do not need to be read in order. Each book has previously been published as a single title under the same name in the collection.
A great collection of romantic suspense novels!
"Gripping. This book is a first-rate thriller." (NY Times Best-selling author Brenda Novak)
"A Terrifyingly Terrific Debut!" (Award-winning Author Loucinda McGary)
Forensic psychiatrist Kate Myers believes the killer of two teenage girls in Bigler County, California, is the same man who savagely murdered her twin sister over fifteen years ago. Working with single-minded tenacity, she sets out to prove it.
Deputy Sheriff Ben Slater hides his personal pain behind the job, but Kate's arrival knocks his world on its axis. He wants to believe her wild theory, but the idea of a serial killer with the kind of pathology she proposes is too bizarre.
Together they work to find a killer whose roots began in a small town in Bigler County, but whose violence spread across the nation. A Janus-like killer, more monster than man, fixates on Kate and wants nothing more than to kill the "purple-eyed girl again."
"Warning: This is a hard book to put down!" (Sia McKye Over Coffee)
