IT STARTED SEVEN YEARS AGO...
A brutal murder in a small town, carefully staged to echo a crime scene from 1975.
No clues. No leads. Just questions.
The following year it happened again. And then again...
Every year. Same day. Same place. Exact same scene from the past... No resolution.
Now, FBI Special Agent Constance Mandalay has less than four days to stop the annual horror from marking its eighth anniversary, but she also has another problem: The residents of the small town just might be protecting a killer secret...
SA Mandalay is dispatched as an eleventh hour replacement for another agent, tasked with investigating a cold case that portends the chilling copycat murder each year. Armed only with a woefully incomplete case file and her dogged determination, she seeks out the answers before another body can be sent to the morgue. However, she finds that sometimes the answers simply lead to more questions; and that the past is sometimes destined to repeat itself, with a vengeance...
MERRIE AXEMAS is a creepy police-procedural, thriller novella with a wicked paranormal twist, from the warped mind of M. R. Sellars, author of the award-winning Rowan Gant Investigations series of supernatural thrillers. Although set during the Christmas holiday season, it is an enthralling read at any time of year.
MERRIE AXEMAS: A Killer Holiday Tale was originally written and distributed as a free gift during the 2010 Christmas season to long time fans of M. R. Sellars' RGI novels. However, soon after its release, readers were clamoring for more of Special Agent Constance Mandalay, as well as more of the "Merrie Axemas story." Therefore, the full-length novel, IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER was born (released November 2011) and officially launched the new Special Agent Constance Mandalay Novels thriller series.
In effect, MERRIE AXEMAS is both a stand-alone novella, and a bone-chilling sample cut straight from the heart of the novel IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER. It launches you into Special Agent Constance Mandalay's world, brings you to the edge, and then taunts you with the same unanswered questions that plague her. Finally, it presents you with a spoiler-free alternate ending to that of the full-length novel.
FROM THE "VIRTUAL" BACK COVER:
Little Merrie Callahan is all grown up now.
She doesn't believe in Santa anymore.
But she still has an axe to grind with the man in the red suit...
And, for FBI Special Agent Constance Mandalay, the Christmas Holiday will never be the same again.
