Double Blind

A murderer driven by a lust for fear and pain is on the prowl in Tampa, Florida. His first victim is a truck driver, shot and slaughtered while unloading car parts late at night in an industrial park. His next casualty is a jogger pounding the dark streets of Ybor City, an out-of-town businessman unaware of the danger surrounding him. His third fatality is a prominent businessman, Henry Dilger, owner of a multi-million dollar produce-shipping business, who ignores his wife’s prescient warning to skip driving to the company’s Lakeland warehouse in his obsessive search for a missing invoice.

Detectives Carly Sanderson and Sergio Martin are assigned the initial case and soon realize they’re dealing with a serial killer. At the same time, John Tyree, a Dilger family friend, comes home to join his uncle Frank’s business, and Mrs. Dilger asks him to find the butcher who murdered her husband.

After three killings and a near-miss by a high-school couple, the police search shifts into high gear. However, after Carly is attacked during her nightly jog, she and Sergio realize the killer may be much closer than they suspected.

They don’t realize there might be more than one.

It’s best to read Double Blind during daylight hours, because Dan Alatorre has crafted a thriller that will terrify even the hardiest readers.
