Don’t Kill For Me
Eileen Somers is flattered by a series of anonymous letters delivered to her floral boutique. The author rambles on about the past, mentioning places and things that feel familiar to her. She’s intrigued and wants to meet the secret admirer. Then he confesses to murder. The vigilante Rest in Peace Killer has chosen Eileen as his latest victim. The loss of his first target, her married lover, makes Eileen’s life complicated. She struggles, hiding her grief, unsure if he really was murdered for her benefit. In the next confession, signed RIP, the killer makes it clear he will continue to eliminate her adversaries to give her peace of mind.
