Under A Blood Moon Cover

Available Now!


The second book in the CJ O'Hara Crime Thrillers series.​

What if the only way to stop a crime is to see it before it happens?

Detective CJ O’Hara has barely had time to catch her breath after closing the Lowcountry Killer case. With a serial rapist terrorizing the city, CJ is already stretched to her limit when a young woman is butchered in her sleep — and the killer takes a gruesome souvenir.


Pulling apart bizarre clues, CJ believes the evidence may point to hoodoo rituals connected to the full moon. But finding the truth may require the help of a Gullah woman with the gift of sight. A gift she is reluctant to share…


With a cold case snapping at her heels and the next full moon fast approaching, an unexpected tragedy blows CJ’s life — and her sanity — apart. But when the next life on the line is someone close to her, it will take more than police instincts to stop a killer.


And there’s hours left before the moon turns dark red.


Under A Blood Moon is the suspenseful second book in the CJ O’Hara Crime Thrillers Series. Following the troubled detective as she unravels a web of simultaneous crimes, this fast-paced mystery novel blends classic deceptions with a supernatural twist.
