All that remains are whispers of the past…
When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to be an open-and-shut case.
With no quick means of identifying the victims, building a profile of this serial killer is proving more challenging than usual. How is the killer picking these victims? Why are their limbs being severed and bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this killer to murder?
The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is clear, though: the killing isn’t going to stop until they figure it all out. And they are running out of time…








Excerpt from Chapter 1 of Remnants (Brandon Fisher FBI
series):
My senses were busy
taking in the crime scene
: marshland, relative seclusion, an arm and leg
discovered last week, an arm yesterday. Aside from the human remains that had
been found here, the property had a serene feeling to it, a sense of peace.
There was a tangible quality to the air, though—or maybe it was the presence of
law enforcement and crime scene investigators—that made it impossible to deny
that death had touched the place.
“What else can you tell us about the limbs that were
recovered?” Paige asked.
The lieutenant cleared
his throat. “Well, both arms didn
’t have hands, and the leg didn’t have
a foot. We found incision marks indicating the hands and foot had been
intentionally cut off.”
“Our killer
could have taken them for trophies or to make identification impossible,” I
suggested.
Pike gave a
small nod and continued. “And while we know the hands and foot were removed,
it’s not as clear how the appendages separated from the torso. It would be
something we’d need the medical examiner to clarify.”
Jack’s brow furrowed, and I could tell his mind was
racing through the possibilities.
“But,” Pike
continued, “all the limbs have one thing in common: muscle tissue remained,
even though the skin had been removed.”
“It is possible
that the skin was also taken as a trophy,” Zach speculated.
“We could be
looking for a hunter or a sexual sadist,” Jack said.
Hunters were
typically identified by the type of weapon they used—a hunting knife, rifle, or
crossbow, for example—and they tended to dispose of their victims’ bodies in
remote, isolated areas. A sexual sadist, on the other hand, got off on the
torture and pain. But we’d need to gather more facts before we could build any
sort of profile on our unsub. Even knowing more about the victims themselves
would help.
Was the killer choosing people he or she was acquainted
with? Were the victims of a certain gender, age group, occupation? The list
went on and on. From there, we could more easily
speculate on
our killer’s motive and what they had to gain.
