Research Besmirch

When you write something as jarring as Railway, you naturally want to follow it up with something just as gripping. Still, it’s hard to find things that grab me the way that case did.

And really, is it any wonder? The case of James Bulger was horrifying, and rightly so. Trying to do research to continue onto the next stories in The Contagion Effect series requires me to deep dive into the darkest, deepest recesses of humanity. To skim the surface of pure evil. It’s not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure. I always knew I wanted to study abnormal psychology, to learn what made killers different from those of us who aren’t, but trying to sort out which cases would make a good ‘story’ is still hard. As it should be.

I don’t know what is next for my lonely but determined detective. But I can promise… he will not give up and he will not give in. It simply isn’t in his nature. When it comes to finding justice for the love of his life, he will stop at nothing. That determination to right the wrongs in our lives is a very human affliction, and why I hope Kade will continue to enthrall those who give him a chance for many stories to come.
