Jack Carpenter Series by James Swain (Books 1-4)
1. Midnight Rambler
Years ago, South Florida cop Jack Carpenter beat up a murder suspect named Simon Skell, a dangerous predator with a penchant for playing the Rolling Stones’ “Midnight Rambler” as he tortured young women. When Jack lost his temper, he lost his job and his marriage, too; so as Skell’s early release from prison draws near, the tarnished hero–now a specialist in missing-child cases– sees an opportunity to make things right. Scrambling to gather more evidence, Jack uncovers a shocking criminal conspiracy: a group of four men who kidnap and kill young women on the margins of society. Teaming up with an FBI agent, Jack must outwit, outrun, and outmaneuver his enemies in this taut, riveting novel of suspense. Midnight Rambler pairs James Swain’s trademark smooth-as-silk writing with a plot bigger and bolder than anything he’s done before.

And they’ll need all the help they can get-including backup from an FBI man with a personal stake in the hunt-as they follow a twisted trail from the ruins of a shuttered mental asylum with an infamous past to the streets of a sinister small town with a ghastly secret.
