The murderer is no dull boy, he’s that one in a million psychopath with the brains, discipline, and originality to take life after life and leave the authorities dumbfounded. Like most serial killers he lives for the rush and it takes a bigger thrill to get him off each successive time. His elaborately staged kills are nothing short of genius and the tableaus he creates taunt law enforcement’s best and brightest. It’s not enough for his victims to die; this villain seduces his marks with a game, a game designed to lure each man to his death.
Mather must build a composite of a murderer no one has ever seen and become expert in his bizarre MO. What begins as a cold case builds quickly into an inferno, but is Mather the hunter or the hunted? Find out why this monster is so terrifyingly lethal in Rules of the Kill.
“Lawrence Kelter reminds me of an early Robert Ludlum,” Nelson DeMille
RULES OF THE KILL is available from Amazon.
I never expected to be a writer. In fact, I was voted the student least likely to visit a library. (Don’t believe it? Feel free to check my high school yearbook.) Well, times change I suppose, and I have now authored several novels including the internationally best-selling Stephanie Chalice Thriller Series.
Early in my writing career, I received support from none other than best-selling novelist, Nelson DeMille, who reviewed my work and actually put pencil to paper to assist in the editing of the first book. DeMille has been a true inspiration to me and has also given me some tough love. Way before he ever said, “Lawrence Kelter is an exciting new novelist, who reminds me of an early Robert Ludlum,” he told me, “Kid, your work needs editing, but that’s a hell of a lot better than not having talent. Keep it up!”
I’ve lived in the Metro New York area most of my life and rely primarily on locales in Manhattan and Long Island for my stories’ settings. I try very hard to make each novel quickly paced and crammed full of twists, turns, and laughs.
