The Case of the Russian Maids

The Case of the Russian Maids

A series of violent murders sweeps the Oceanfront of Virginia Beach during the height of the tourist season, threatening the heart and soul of the city’s financial and emotional security. The victims are beautiful Russian maids working at oceanfront hotels, employed by Nikolai Ivanov’s Tsarina Enterprises, a firm also suspected of employing the women for an additional kind of very special room service, one that reaches into the highest echelons of society and government.

The murderer is careful, calculating and resourceful, a master of disguise and with inside information about the workings of the local police. The scenes are macabre, twisted artworks using the victims as the centerpiece.

Under extreme pressures from local political figures, an unusual team assembles to crack the case, led by Lt. Detective John Ordberg from SVU, and his special officers Tonya Jackson and Wheels Johnson. Ordberg also brings in local PI Rick Jameson and his associate Mick Gorbach, along with Michelle Paige, a Psychological Profiler and spiritual reader from The Edgar Cayce Foundation. The team is completed by Special Agent Elena Grigorevna from the FBI.

Taunted by rambling letters from the perp, Ordberg’s team gets inside the head of the bad guy and sets out to take him down, at whatever cost. This is a thriller with a roller coaster ride and a strong finish.
