Montreal, the long, hot summer of 1996, and in the dark of night, moving like a shadowy wraith, a vigilante prowls the city's streets. The targets of his bloody rampage, the worst of the worst; murderers, gangbangers, rapists... Six months, sixteen murders and the harried police are still without a clue, until they receive an email from the assassin himself. Lieutenant Dave McCall, head of Montreal's Special Homicide Task Force, needs help to crack the secrets of the killer's taunting message. He calls on an expert, Chris Barry, who runs a security firm specializing in computer communications. Together, McCall and Barry launch a grim quest to track down a man who preys on predators - an urgent quest to bring this remorseless killer to justice. But whose justice will prevail? Theirs, or the Vigilante's?
". . . probably the best mystery/thriller book I have ever read . . . The last sentence made me shiver with delight." - Tiffany A. Harkleroad, "Tiffany's Bookshelf"
Claude was born in Montreal, Canada, at a very young age, where he still resides with his spouse, Joanne, under the watchful eye of Krystalle and Midnight, two black females of the feline persuasion. In a former life, he completed his studies at McGill University and worked in various management capacities for a handful of firms over countless years. From there, considering his extensive background in human resources and finance, it was a logical leap in his career path to stay home and write crime thrillers. His first stab at writing fiction was actually in 1995, the result being his first novel, Vigilante. Two others of the same series followed by 1997 but all three remained dormant until publication in 2009. Since, besides writing ASYLUM, a stand-alone, the Vigilante Series has grown to fifteen thrilling installments including a revised version of Nasty in Nice, previously published on the now defunct Kindle Worlds platform. Two of his novels were included in the pair of blockbuster 9 Killer Thriller anthologies, the second of which made the USA Today Bestsellers list in March 2014. Claude has also penned Something's Cooking, a faux-erotica parody and cookbook under the pseudonyms Réal E. Hotte and Dasha Sugah. His books have topped the chart in the Vigilante Justice category on Amazon and over 600,000 copies have been distributed to date. Claude's other interests include reading, playing guitar, painting, cooking, traveling and trying to stay in reasonable shape.
