Kate Dawson Thrillers Book #1
by John L. Flynn
Genre: Mystery, Crime Thriller
Detective Kate Dawson is willing to go undercover to catch a serial killer.
But this time, undercover may be exactly what the killer wants.
A rich, politically connected CEO dies in his private dungeon on a foggy San Fran night--beaten and castrated by a mysterious sex worker he hired. Detective Kate Dawson and her partner are assigned the case. Their only lead is a provocative email from "Crystal Rose" and an IP address at the University of San Francisco.
Before long, Kate's on the trail of a serial killer who uses the seedy underworld of porn shops, Internet sex sites, and S&M clubs to target victims. She knows the only way to catch the killer is to become part of that world.
John Flynn is the Hugo-nominated author of multiple non-fiction titles including Cinematic Vampires: The Living Dead on Film and War of the Worlds: From Wells to Spielberg.
In 1997, John switched gears from writing and literature to study psychology, and earned a degree as a clinical psychologist. Today, John lives in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and is a dean at Broward College. Intimate Bondage is his first published novel in the Kate Dawson series.

Architects of Armageddon
Kate Dawson Thrillers #2
Inspector Kate Dawson is called to investigate a mass murder; a call that will change her life, and possibly the whole world—forever.
Certain parents have been directed to put their children to death. They believe they are the Chosen Ones, destined by God to inherit the Earth. The charismatic leader of End Times Ministries, whose grand plan includes stoking the fires of Armageddon, has ordered parishioners to close ranks and prepare for a holy war.
Kate Dawson knows this is not God’s will, but that of a dangerous, diabolical mind that controls the lives of his people. “They plan to start a war!”
“Nearly a million people live in the San Francisco Bay area,” Senator Santiago said.
“That’s a lot of lives that would be lost, but nowhere near the hundreds of millions of lives lost in a global war, and the starvation, and sickness, and disease that follows.”
“So, you’re saying, the Doomsday clock is ticking?” Kate asked, already sensing the answer.
“It’s five minutes to midnight . . .”
Kate would have been the first one to confess that she didn’t know a whole lot about politics and religion—but she did know there was a group of fanatics out there who were determined to move the hands of the clock closer to midnight, and it was her duty to stop them.

From a very early age, John demonstrated a keen interest in movies and science fiction. He made his first single-reel films with a Super-8mm camera; of course, he also designed all the sets, made all the costumes, and wrote all the scripts. When he went to college at age 17, he studied writing and theater. John received his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from the University of South Florida and Ph.D. from Southern California University. In 1979, he directed his first stage play, Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple," for the Patapsco Players. One year later, he not only directed but also designed the set and costumes for Stephen Sondheim's "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" for a local community theater. His set and costume designs were singled out for recognition by the local media, and earned him notoriety as a theatrical designer. From 1980 to 1987, he honed his skills as a costume designer, and after winning numerous national and international competitions, he earned the title of Master Costumer.
In 1995, John switched gears to study psychology, and earned a degree as a clinical psychologist. His study, The Etiology of Sexual Addiction: Childhood Trauma as a Primary Determinant (1997), has broken new ground in the diagnosis and treatment of sexual addiction.
He returned to professional writing in 1992, and earned the first of his three Hugo Award nominations, ten years later, in 2002. The prestigious Hugo Award is the Science Fiction Achievement Award which is given for excellence in the field of science fiction writing and the arts. Dr. Flynn received two additional Hugo nominations in 2003 and 2004. His notoriety in the field of science fiction has provided John with many wonderful opportunities. He has appeared on television (including the Sci-Fi Channel and Russia's RTR Television), was featured in the documentary "Finding the Future" (2004), has spoken on the radio, and been a guest at national conferences. With fellow author and academic Bob Blackwood, he founded The Film Doctors in 2004. The Film Doctors are academics who promote science fiction films in mainstream popular culture. Their first collaboration produced Future Prime: The Top Ten Science Fiction Films" (2006). Today, Dr. Flynn makes his home in Lake Worth, Florida. He also labors to promote the work of new and emerging science fiction writers through L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future contest.
