From the pen of Danae Samson, author of the terrifying debut, LAMENT HILL, comes her follow-up novel, BURN: The Casual Slaughters of Simon Green.

Violence comes to the small Californian college community of Riverhearst as a group of students and teachers are forced to confront a sociopathic killer targeting students.  But what is more frightening is that this killer appears to be one of their own…

Prepare to experience the neuroses and the casual slaughters of Simon Green.

Prepare to experience the horror of a town BURN!

It’s not every day colleges get taunted by serial killers. But when they’re as vicious and cunning as Simon Green, that’s about twice as bad.

Simon Green is the perfect sociopath, almost soulless, he cares about no one but himself. He’s vindictive, angry, and wants to teach the world a lesson they won’t soon forget.

The detectives stand for a mystery. Who is targeting a variety of students at college, and why? What’s the motive? If they want to figure it out, they’ll have to figure out Simon Green, which isn’t easy at all.

Scary in its brutal honesty about how little Simon cares about others, “Burn” sketches a good character profile of a sociopath, without making him come across as either sympathetic or totally diabolic. He holds the middle – an enigma, hard to understand.

Solid writing, a varied cast of characters, and an intriguing story mixed in one.
