The Izzy O’Donnell series – Eye for and Eye.

I am Jocelyn Pedersen, a Canadian-born award-winning, AP-published, professional journalist with hundreds of published clips in various newspapers and magazines. And I decided to write a novel. A lover of the mystery and thriller, I digest every piece of Criminal Minds with my friends and family. And that is where the Izzy O’Donnell series came to mind. The first in the series is titled Eye for an Eye.

Rookie detective Izzy O'Donnell is on the trail of a serial killer who's murdering victims and leaving behind body parts wrapped in Bible verses.  Izzy tracks him down with the help of her two partners, Moreno and Cal.

Her friend, Apple, thinks she's telepathic and she and her pet rabbit can smell death on Izzy's clothes.  Unnerved by unexplained dreams, Izzy forges forth to solve the case. A homeless man, a philandering televangelist, and a mentally challenged gardener are among the suspects who distract Izzy from seeing the killer, who has been getting to know her all along.

Izzy is a Rookie - it is obvious the way she up-chucks on a crime scene and hesitates to make her opinions known.  She’s at the bottom of the rung on a long ladder that may never reach the top.  But she has instincts and knows a pervert when she works a crime scene. And they have one in this case.
She was a uniform cop for years and grew up in a household of policemen.  Her dad retired from the force, and now she looks after him and his bar after every shift. The most important thing in her life is to make him proud of her and to become the caliber of cop he was.

The latest round of murders are getting the better of her and everyone who works it.  And that is just how the perp wants it.  If they are pitted against each other, the crimes will never be solved. 
Check out the first in the Izzy O’Donnell series – Eye for and Eye.

This is an impeccably, fairNupright
invitation to join me in the Elysian Fields
to RITE countless numbers of books for the
lengthNbreadth of eternity; to emphacize
the immenant God, the panacea,
the extratraordinary VitSee,
the Master of the Exponential Universe;

This is also a Way where you can
get ideas FROM our wurxx -
I have a lil German in me, too:
my Brooklyn grandpa was
half Kraut; he became an
undertaker who used to kid,
'Nope. No shortage of cash.
Somebuddy's always dying'.
I find that extremely hilarious:
I'm a NDEr now.
Who knew??
God bless you.
I love you, two.
A lot.
