REVIEW: Khaki = Killer by Connie Corcoran Wilson

Khaki KillerKhaki = Killer
by Connie Corcoran WilsonQuad Cities Press, April 2014. 235 pages. Trade paper.
ISBN: 978 0982 444 825


Here is book three in Connie Wilson’s award-winning paranormal thriller series, following The Color of Evil and Red is for Rage.

The story is set in a high school in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and the complex plot involves a serial killer, kidnap victims, a pregnant teenager, a dying girl, a climatic Mano-a-Mano fight on a bridge, a collapsing staircase, and a main protagonist (Ted McGreery) who possesses a special power (Tetrachromatic Super Vision) that allows him to read good-or-bad auras.

Wilson keeps the action moving briskly in a tight time frame from December of 2004 into June of 2005.

Having been a teacher for more than thirty years, she knows her subject. (Her first book, in 1989, was a volume on teaching.)

Says Wilson: “My true inspiration for this book was a double homicide that took place in my real-life setting of Cedar Falls.”

Wilson’s Style is non-intrusive, grounded and smooth. It more than gets the job done in holding a reader’s attention from front page to last.

I’d advise you to grab a copy of Khaki = Killer for yourself and one for the teenager in your family.

Trust me, you won’t be sorry.
