a physiological oddity - Gates of Perdition (The Belcorte Murders #2) by R.P. Kraul

This man is a physiological oddity who suffered wicked abuse at the hands of his foster parents—for which he took revenge. He wants to be normal and whole again, but a manipulative psychiatrist has wakened the demons.
Description:

Mary watches in awe as a man plays guitar at gloomy Indianhead Reservoir. His skill is astonishing. But Mary is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

This man is a physiological oddity who suffered wicked abuse at the hands of his foster parents—for which he took revenge. He wants to be normal and whole again, but a manipulative psychiatrist has wakened the demons.

Mary will spend her last days chained in a basement—until she bears the child of a madman the media will call the Indianhead River Killer.

He will become Pennsylvania’s most prolific serial killer, and he will wreck the lives of the people in Belcorte. Twin Peaks meets The Silence of the Lambs in GATES OF PERDITION, the prequel to MIRRORS OF ANGUISH.

Jill leaves behind her life as a journalist in Rochester to settle her mother’s estate in Belcorte, a town in the Pocono Mountains sprinkled with the victims of a serial killer known as the Indianhead River Killer. Purportedly, this person knew her grandfather, himself a college professor, political ax-grinder—and perhaps a murderer.

Twenty-seven years ago, the police found in Grandfather’s Victorian house the mutilated body of a missing teenage girl and evidence that he had aborted the girl’s pregnancy. The case, in fact, is similar to the Indianhead River Murders. Was Grandfather once the Indianhead River Killer, and the current killer, his apprentice?

As she unravels her grandfather’s past, Jill discovers that she is connected to the Jarvingses, the affluent family of her grandfather’s murder victim. Was there a feud between her grandfather and the Jarvingses, one that evolved to revenge and murder? The investigation leads Jill to a shop in Philadelphia that may possess a trunk containing the aborted fetus of Grandfather’s murder victim. As Jill closes in on the truth, the Indianhead River Killer closes in on her.

R.P. was enamored of horror from a young age, where he would sneak down to the family room with his mother sleeping, turn on that big console television--think 1970s here--and watch a double shot of horror on Pittsburgh's Chiller Theater.

He then took to creative writing, borrowing pieces of his favorite films. Today, he writes a unique blend of literary mystery and horror—throw in some crime now and then. It's one part H.P. Lovecraft and one part David Lynch and one part Kurt Vonnegut—and probably some other stuff, too. He is author of three books: Mirrors of Anguish, Demon of the Fall, and Gates of Perdition. He also co-authored Dangerous Grace, a soon-to-be-released erotic thriller.
