The moon is rising, and a killer prowls the night.
Jake Stanton, FBI Agent and former member of the U.S. Army's elite Omega force, is dispatched to Virginia to find the murderer known only as the Red Moon Killer. Together with Silvanus Merlin, a man with extraordinary talents, they track the elusive killer who attacks only on nights of the full moon. They must hurry, for soon the moon will be full once more, and the killer will strike again.
The Mystery /Suspense short story, Red Moon, is a more detailed version of a story that appears in a chapter of my Jake Stanton novel, Sorcerer.This story is intended to be an introduction to the two main characters of that book. If you read Sorcerer first, you will know how this short story ends.
Jake Stanton is also featured in the novel, Swan Loch, and in the forthcoming novella, A Gunman's Destiny.

"The action is in Red Moon is fast-paced and riveting as both men, Jake Stanton and Merlin, are in a race against time to find the killer before he strikes again. It's a spin on the kind of horror stories you might have enjoyed when you were young with plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you intrigued."
