ASHES TO ASHES

It’s been five years since the Looking Glass killer terrorized the streets of Ash Park, leaving a trail of dissected victims in his wake. 

Five years since the Looking Glass killer kidnapped Hannah Montgomery, a woman Detective Petrosky had sworn to protect—a woman who looked just like his murdered daughter.  
Five years of guilt-ridden nights Petrosky spent wishing he could find the balls to put a bullet in his brain. 

But when a call comes in from the police department in Hannah Montgomery’s hometown, Petrosky must re-evaluate all he knows to be true. Could the killing of Hannah Montgomery’s father be connected to the Looking Glass case?

What he finds is the most shocking revelation of his career, one that tangles past and present in an inescapable web of deceit. For the Looking Glass killer isn’t the only sadistic butcher he needs to find—the man who raped and burned his daughter alive is still out there, taunting him with the bodies of other victims. And the cases are too closely connected to tease apart.

Now Petrosky must holster his grief to track the man who destroyed the only good thing he’s ever done.  

And when Petrosky goes, he’s taking that bastard with him.

GET HIDDEN HERE

 

“Creepy and haunting, Hidden is a fully immersive thriller. I dare you not to devour it in one sitting!” ~Andra Watkins, NY Times best selling author of Not Without My Father

 

"Riveting, horrifying, and devastating, Hidden is a book you will not soon forget.” ~Kristen Mae, bestselling author of Red Water

 

 

From the Back Cover

He’s back.

Detective Edward Petrosky has always felt the pain of the world like a razor blade in his gut, even more so when he considers the killers who have escaped conviction. But he can’t let that stop him, not after a grandmother is found murdered on her front lawn, the victim of some machete-wielding psycho. 

The case is strange from the outset: no one heard a thing despite the public nature of the crime. An unknown child’s footprints cover the property without a trace of the kid. And a grisly discovery in the basement has the entire police force stunned. Nothing makes sense. Whatever secrets their victim had, she’d taken them, quietly, to her grave. 

But when another woman’s corpse turns up with a familiar brand on her ribcage, Petrosky realizes the horrible truth: a killer he’d thought was long gone from Ash Park has remained, lurking in their midst. And who knows how many victims this butcher has collected? For those he’s kidnapped, any day might be their last, imprisoned, unseen, with only their screams and a deranged lunatic for company.

Now Petrosky must risk everything he holds sacred to track the most sadistic killer Ash Park has ever seen, a man whose thirst for carnage extends far beyond mere bloodletting. But saving innocent lives will require an unbearable sacrifice. 

One from which he may never recover.

“This story was a beautiful, artistic, heartbreaking merging of story and feeling through a creative use of metaphor. I still have chills.”

~Kristen Mae, Red Water

 

 

From the Back Cover:

 
Be brave, little girl. Daddy’s here. 
 

As far as thirteen-year-old Katie is concerned, her world might as well revolve around her father. But lately, things have been strange on their North Dakota ranch. It’s not like Daddy to miss a private joke or forget to read a bedtime story to baby Jack. And the cattle are acting funny, too. Just last night, they woke Katie up with their bellowing. Or maybe that was part of her nightmare, the one with the brilliantly purple sky.

But dream or no, Katie is sure something’s wrong. She can feel it between her shoulder blades, like a pair of clammy flingers climbing up her spine. Nevertheless, she has faith that she and Daddy can fix it. There’s never been a problem they couldn’t solve, as long as they had each other. 

But Katie’s about to find out that some things are too horrifying to understand, let alone fix. 

It’s a brave new world out there. 

And in this world, bravery can’t save you.

GET CRIMSON SNOW HERE

“A gripping ride into frozen insanity. Readers cannot go wrong with this visceral introduction to O’Flynn’s writing.”~Andra Watkins, bestselling author of Not Without My Father

“Insanely evocative writing! I’m a huge fan of short stories and this one is layered, twisted in all the best ways, and expertly written. This sucked me in and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head.” ~Beth Teliho, Order of Seven

“O’Flynn created an apocalyptic and barren landscape and took us on a twisting ride. I seriously had to pull the covers up tighter because her powerful words had me cold and scared and wondering who I could trust. This is the kind of story I could see on a show like Twilight Zone.” ~Jennifer Dyer, The Donor

From the back cover:

Green Valley was once known for its fertile farming, picturesque mountains, and abundant wildlife. Now snow and ice cover all but the tallest homes. The only sounds are Maverick’s boots clumping through the snowdrifts and the frigid wind hissing down the mountain. Even the beasts in the woods have gone utterly silent.

But the path forward is clear, especially for one emboldened by optimism. So Maverick keeps moving, trudging through the abandoned town toward the desolate tundra beyond the forest, marring the snow with his bloody footprints.

To leave is a risk. To stay might be suicide.

Either way, no one leaves these mountains alive.

Intrigued? You know you are.

What readers are saying about Repressed

“Chilling, suspenseful, and impossible to put down.”
~Kristen Mae, Beyond the Break

"WOW! What a book! (O'Flynn has) amazing ability to captivate an audience and spin a tale." ~Alyson Herzig, The Shitastrophy

"Darkest book yet. Twisted...realistic and haunting." ~Nicole Knepper, Moms Who Drink and Swear

Repressed is O'Flynn's latest and most chilling installment in the Ash Park series. You'd better glue your eyelids open before you start reading because you won't want to look away.” ~Mary Widdicks, A Mutual Addiction

From the back cover: 

No matter where you go, your past follows. 

For once in his life, Curtis Morrison has it good. 

A newly-married detective on the Ash Park police force, Morrison spends his days working to heal the ails of society to make up for his own checkered past. But though he’s come a long way from a life of deadly, bloody secrets he can’t fully recall, not even his wife and baby daughter can silence the old addiction still rattling around in his brain. 

And he’s about to learn that a history like his is not the kind you can escape from.

When his wife and child go missing, Morrison finds himself dragged into a nightmare game controlled by a sadistic monster hell-bent on making him pay for sins he’s repressed for nearly twenty years. Whoever took his wife isn’t after her—they want Morrison to suffer. And with each day that passes, his family’s situation grows more dire. 

Now Morrison must explore a past he’d hoped he’d left behind to save the people he loves, awakening the beast he’s tried so hard to forget. What he uncovers is far worse than he imagined, every clue dragging him away from the life he’s painstakingly built and back to a place he’d very nearly succumbed. 

The clock’s ticking. And this time, he might not make it out alive.

CONVICTION: An Ash Park Novel (#2)

GET CONVICTION HERE

What readers are saying about Conviction

"A white-knuckled thrill ride from first page to last." ~Andra Watkins, NYT bestselling author of Not Without My Father

“(Conviction) is an intense and suspenseful murder mystery. It captured me from the first chapter and held me enthralled until the final page.”~Susan Sewell, Reader’s Favorite

"Addictive and consuming, O'Flynn will have you chewing your nails off until the very end." ~Kristen Mae, Beyond the Break

"Conviction will have you jumping at shadows and leave you hungry for more." ~Mary Widdicks, The Mermaid Asylum

From the back cover:

Conviction means nothing when you’re dead wrong. 

Shannon Taylor takes no prisoners—save the ones she tosses into lockup. Between convicting criminals as an Ash Park district attorney, dealing with her jerk ex-husband (who also happens to be her boss), and caring for her dying brother, Shannon is already stretched thin. So she’s less than thrilled when new evidence from a closed case emerges—evidence suggesting she threw a young mother in jail for a murder she didn’t commit. 

Shannon knows the girl is hiding something. But whatever the secret, it is even more compelling than the hope of freedom—the girl won’t talk.

When Shannon becomes the target of a series of cryptic and bloody warnings, she must find a way to protect everyone she holds dear. Will her persistence free an innocent woman? Or will her pursuit of the truth turn her family into helpless targets in a madman’s game? 

Conviction runs deep. Courage runs deeper. And nothing in Ash Park is as it seems.
