Punish the Deed

Book Two in the Lt. Lucinda Pierce Mystery Series

A chilling new case for Homicide Investigator Lucinda Pierce

The mutilated body of children’s charity worker, Sharon Fleming, is found sprawled on the office kitchen’s floor.  A note beside her body bears the words, ‘I was left behind’.
Lucinda must track down this violent killer before he leaves another victim behind.  A series of threatening notes left on her car windshield complicate the investigation and threaten to put Lucinda in danger as she learns that no good deed goes unpunished.

PUNISH THE DEED, the second novel in the Lucinda Pierce series, explores the distorted psychology of a psychopath who refuses to accept personal responsibility but, instead, shifts the blame to those whose lives are centered on helping others.


“Lucinda who stoically ignores ugly taunts about her facial deformities, fends off both an armed serial killer and an even better armed underling’s wife with so little effort that she surely qualifies for superhero status.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Fanning injects enough edge-of-the-seat action to keep readers turning pages.”
