Stress Fracture

Book 1, Dub Walker Series

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When Dub Walker’s close friend Sheriff Mike Savage becomes the victim of a gruesome murder, the forensic expert is called upon to track down the serial killer who's been terrorizing the county. Having been involved in more than 100 cases of foul play and witnessed the bloody remains of rape, torture, and unthinkable mutilation, Dub thought he had seen it all—yet the killer is unlike any murderer Dub has ever encountered. Vacillating between wildly divergent personalities fueled by post traumatic stress disorder—at times calm, cold, and calculating; at others maniacal and out of control—the psychopath taunts, threatens, and outmaneuvers Dub at every turn. The stakes are suddenly elevated as Dub uncovers a deadly conspiracy tainted with unrestrained greed, corruption, and ties to the military establishment and the medical community.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 22, 2010 – Lyle's routine serial killer thriller introduces crime scene and evidence analyst Dub Walker, a character indistinguishable from the leads of many other such novels. The Huntsville, Ala., authorities ask Walker for help in the third of a series of murders, the brutal beating death of retired sheriff Mike Savage, who's found in his bedroom with a wrought-iron poker stuck in his abdomen. Walker's being an old friend of Savage makes the inquiry personal. There are no obvious connections between Savage and the earlier victims, a 73-year-old retired aerospace engineer and an activist in the local gay community. Providing Walker with a stereotypical motive for focusing on serial killers a girlfriend during his med school days vanished without trace at the hands of one does little to add depth. Macavity Award winner Lyle is the author of Murder and Mayhem: A Doctor Answers Medical and Forensic Questions for Mystery Writers and other nonfiction works on crime.
