The online world can be a dangerous place for kids whose parents are unaware of their activities, especially when a vicious serial killer is on the rampage. As the body count escalates, the pressure is on for Sheriff Brody Chase and former FBI profiler Carly Smith to stop the terror.
“You need to get here fast, Brody. There are two bodies inside the car.”
Brody slammed the cell phone back in his pocket and raced to the front door. Nausea and fear filled him as he prayed the two bodies were not preadolescent females, like the two unsolved murder files on his desk. The last two years like clockwork, the body of a young girl had been found in his county. Both murders remained unsolved because of a lack of identification, but Brody knew that each girl had family members somewhere. Why in the hell hadn’t anyone reported them missing?
There was either a monster living in his county, or using it as a body dump site. Both options were unsettling, and people were getting nervous. He was sick of being asked why the murders hadn’t been solved, and how close he was to finding the killer. The avid crime television viewers watched every week as crimes were solved and tied up with a ribbon at the end of the hour. That it was taking two years to solve the girls’ murders was unacceptable to them, and they weren’t afraid to voice their opinions — to him, and to the County Commission President, Bradley Lucas, to whom Brody reported.

When a young woman is found murdered in a public park, it is up to RPD detective Lt. Tom Lackey to locate her killer. With the help of his longtime girlfriend and professional photographer, Kathy Spencer, Lackey unravels a mystery laden with psychosis and unexpected revelations. While Tom is busy following the multiple clues pouring in from different directions, Kathy gets to work to prove her own theory: The last image viewed by the dying person can be lifted from the eyes of the victim to identify the murderer. Using her background in photography and her passion for iridology, Kathy enlists the help of Dr. Greer, a snow-haired medical examiner who allows her to take shots of Tracey Newman’s eyes. Her findings are puzzling, but they are supported by Alexis Howard, the dead girl’s ten-year-old half sister who volunteers information she claims was delivered to her by her imaginary friend Lily. With multiple suspects floating up to the surface and skeletons yanked out of unlikely closets, Tom must rely on his methodical expertise and on Kathy’s insight to find the killer before tragedy strikes again.

Neil L. Yuzuk, born in Brooklyn, NY worked as a sales rep before returning to college at age 40. After Graduation, he worked as a NYC Substance Abuse Prevention Counselor.
After Neil retired in 2009, his full-time police officer and part-time actor son David said, “Hey Pops, why don’t you write a screenplay for me?“ and he did, “The Devil’s Troll.”
“I’d never written a screenplay before,” said Neil, “but I did a lot of research, came up with a big backstory, and the hunt for a serial killer was written. The characters felt as if I’d known them all my life. It was a great writing experience.”
