*******************PRESS RELEASE********************

Connie (Corcoran) Wilson’s third book in THE COLOR OF EVIL series, KHAKI = KILLER is now available for purchase in both paperback and E-book formats.

Recently named a “PageTurner” by Shelf Unbound magazine, NABE Pinnacle Thriller winner, E-Lit Gold Medal winner and 2 time Silver Feather (IWPA) winner , The Color of Evil series describes the adventures of the young man (Tad McGreevy) with the power to detect auras around others (Tetrachromatic Super Vision) and, in his dreams, to relive the crimes of those with “the color of evil.”

KHAKI = KILLER picks up where RED IS FOR RAGE left off, with Melody (Harris) Carpenter fighting for her life after a fall from atop a human pyramid formation at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

The budding romance between Janice and Stevie grows more serious, but Janice’s parents oppose her relationship with the son of a murderer. There are more revelations about Earl Scranton’s motives. Other romances develop (Tad and Jenny; Charlie and Andrea).

When Heather Crompton and Kelly Carter mysteriously disappear, tension in town ratchets to a fever pitch. Retired police officer Charlie Chandler reorganizes the rag-tag team that helped find Stevie Scranton and bring him back to Cedar Falls, Iowa. This small band of volunteers must try, once again, to determine what could have happened to the two cheerleaders who disappeared while ice-skating on the Cedar River.

Michael Clay (aka, Pogo), still lurks in the background, searching for Tad McGreevy, and hoping to permanently silence “the boy who can see the future.”

Tensions run high and the stakes run even higher in KHAKI = KILLER, Book #3 in THE COLOR OF EVIL series.

Praise for Khaki= Killer:

“Connie Corcoran Wilson weaves a deftly fine scalpel in an age where a crude blade is more the norm. Her work is a smooth, subtle hybrid mix of science fiction, thriller, and horror that realizes a unique and pointed vision in the great tradition of Phillip K. Dick and Ray Bradbury. Her voice is a wonder to behold, at once dark and somber while maintaining a glimmer of hope that shines in the hearts of her heroes, who cling to the light. Like Stephen King, nothing escapes her discerning eye. The result is tale after tale that bleeds life onto the page, both literally and figuratively.”—Jon Land, bestselling author of the Caitlin Strong Series
(Best selling author JON LAND of the Caitlin Strong series).

“Connie Wilson is back—-She’s good! She’s DAMN good! In a world of mainly bad-to-fair writers, she stands above the crowd with plot, description , and strong character. Believe me, you’ll enjoy her latest! that’s a guarantee!…She’s a born storyteller!”—William F. Nolan, Living Legend in Dark Fantasy, “Logan’s Run,” “Logan’s World,” “Nightworlds”

“Wilson’s characters come alive on the page. Comparisons to Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Philip K. Dick aside, Wilson has spent 33 years teaching students in this age range. She knows what she is talking about.”—Gary Braver, author of “Flashback” and 8 other thrillers.

THE COLOR OF EVIL series is old-school psychological horror, artfully blended with new-school shocks and twists. ..Bravo!” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author, multiple Bram Stoker winner
