Please Welcome Bestselling Authors LT Vargus & Tim Mcbain
Authors of Awake in the Dark, Scattered and the Dead, and new Violet Darger series.
Her body is broken. Wrapped in plastic. Dumped on the side of the road. She is the first. There will be more.
A new thriller series following Special Agent Violet Darger.
1. What led you to write a serial killer thriller?
We’ve both always been fascinated by serial killers, both in fiction and non-fiction. I remember reading Red Dragon by Thomas Harris years ago and thinking, “Man, I wish I could write like that.”
2. What was your experience writing this genre compared to your other books?
Our first novel, Casting Shadows Everywhere, is basically a thriller. Since then, we’ve written an urban fantasy series, a post-apocalyptic series, and a slasher horror novel. So going back to a straight thriller felt a little like returning home.
3. Tell us about FBI agent Violet Darger.
She’s tough but damaged. Violet is hard-nosed and driven in her work, and sometimes that intensity is directed at the people around her and results in conflict.
4. Why did you decide Violet would be a rookie agent?
We wanted the first few books to sort of serve as Violet’s origin story, so starting at the beginning of her agent career just made sense.
5. Do you know how many books will be in this series?
Right now we have solid plans for three full length novels, as well as a few novellas. But we intend this series to be open-ended and for each book to be a standalone that could be read out of order.
