Cullen (culmo80) | 6 comments Hey everyone,

I've got a 76,000 word thriller that I could use some help with. I'd appreciate any feedback ... even if you don't like my query blurb below, that'd be helpful too!

I am willing to do a swap (though I don't like romance, erotica, or MG).

I'm happy to discuss anything further.

Thank you in advance.

Blurb:

Patrick Wallace was done playing hero. He gave up his life working covert operations for the CIA to spend time at home with his wife Kelly and daughter Katlyn. His transition to a quiet life is cut short when Kelly becomes the latest victim of a serial killer known as The Hangman.

Weeks go by and Wallace is frustrated that the Hangman is still at large. Fed up with what he sees as police inaction, Wallace decides to take matters into his own hands and hunts the Hangman. Using all his skills from his previous life as a CIA operative, Wallace rampages through the criminal world, going after anyone who is protecting the serial killer. Wallace enjoys his new life: stay-at-home dad during the day, vigilante by night. When he finally catches the Hangman, Wallace discovers the Hangman is not a serial killer, he’s a hitman.

If the Hangman was a hired killer, who paid him to murder Kelly? What sort of powerful people could manipulate an entire city into believing they were being stalked by a serial killer and why? Wallace takes the fight to this secret group, but doing so comes with the risk that his daughter will grow up an orphan.

Hi Harlyn. Thank you for offering to beta read for me!

I also would be happy to read something of yours. What's your book about?
