Have you ever known someone who has been sexually abused? Do you think they’d be conscious of the effects these childhood perversions might have on adult behavior? Do you ever question what could possibly motivate the bizarre acts you learn about your friends and neighbors who appear so normal? Then you'll want to meet Corky!
Fear grips Seattle! It's clear a deranged serial killer is on the loose in Seattle, but the police are stumped when MO patterns just don't jive. There are few clues, except a possibility the perpetrator drives a dirty white van. Who is committing these heinous acts?
Detective Frank Murphy gets the nod to head up the task force. Vulnerable and unnerved by the reminiscence of his own daughter's death, his life is going to hell in a hand basket anyway, but if he can get this killer off the streets it might give him some closure.


The Pacific Northwest is notorious for its share of serial killers, most notably Ted Bundy, the Hillside Strangler, Robert Lee Yates, and Gary Ridgeway, the Green River Killer. Morris has an extensive background in criminal justice and the behavioral sciences. What motivated them to commit their crimes interests him. Retired after 26 years as a highly decorated Army Special Forces officer, he served as a Special Investigator for Washington State and in the criminal justice system Department of Corrections.
A lifelong history enthusiast and world traveler, Ray has used his keen observation of the human condition as the catalyst for expansion of his interests into mainstream fiction. His debut novel and thriller, Don’t Make the Blackbirds Cry, has been receiving Pacific Northwest acclaim.
An avid skier and fisherman, he lives with his wife in Washington and Florida. When not writing, you will find Ray on his boat.
