“The Cosmos Killer” Dezi LeMarco loves to have fun and watch Buffy…and sometimes strangle people to death. When Dezi is put in unexpected danger, Officer Rayden Glenn is assigned to protect her. What Rayden learns about the sometimes delightful and often dangerous psycho turns a mundane job into a fight for both their lives.
“Dezi LeMarco is a little fun, a little scary, a little Harley Quinn, and a lot deeper than she wants you to believe. I don’t usually root for a killer, but I had to.” - Michael C.
Rayden Glenn: A police officer with a lot to prove to herself. She is trying to get her career back on track when Willie Mordrose, the demented leader of his own Family, escapes prison. Rayden is put in charge of protecting a former member of Mordrose’s crew, Dezi LeMarco. She has to avoid getting sucked in by Dezi’s wavering personality as the search for Mordrose blazes a trail across the city.
Dezi LeMarco: The “Cosmos Killer” loved to carve stars into her victims, and is quite proud of her various psychotic diagnoses. She loves watching shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer almost as much as she likes messing with the heads of others. Deep down, there’s something about her that doesn’t quite match her facade.
Willie Mordrose: Mordrose once ran a family that wreaked havoc for years, killing as few as 19 people. Ten years after being sentenced to life, Mordrose and two of his more interesting “children” have escaped prison and are determined to restart their reign of terror.
Will Mordrose be caught before he gets to Dezi, or will he make the world pay for interrupting his self-perceived destiny?
