Sneak Peek: Oracle

OracleToday, we feature a sneak peek of author J.C. Martin’s new crime thriller, Oracle.

As the countdown begins, the body count rises. With London gearing up to host the Olympics, the last thing the city needs is a serial killer stalking the streets, leaving behind a trail of brutal and bizarre murders.
