The Blue Heron by Gene O'Neill
Winner of the 2012 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Long Fiction

In 1962 a USMC Force Recon team, after destroying a V.C. ammo dump, on the Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam border, has a surreal encounter with a Blue Heron. A bird not normally found in SE Asia. Many years later members of that six-man team begin to die in odd circumstances, but deemed accidents. But are they accidents? A 2-inch piece of origami in the shape of a Blue Heron is found inconspicuously at the scene of each death scene. Why? Who placed them? Ryan O'Toole and Joey Hotsko are motivated to find out... and soon--they were on that Force Recon team.
The Crucifixion Experiments by Gord Rollo
Jake Mercer’s life is spiraling out of control. As a criminal profiler and one of the senior homicide investigators in the Oakland Police Department, he’s spent the last twenty-five years getting into the heads of killers trying to understand the way they think. He’s the best at what he does but constantly playing in the minds of madmen carries a heavy price, leaving Jake an out of shape, alcoholic loner suspended from active duty.

The murders have started.

Another serial killer is prowling the streets now, a lunatic who’s making a game of nailing retired Catholic priests to trees and bridges and hydro poles around the city. Torture and murder isn’t enough, they’re experimenting with the bodies to further whatever diabolical plan only they seem to know.

The experiments have begun.

Broken down or not, Lieutenant Mercer might be the only man who can catch this killer before the city starts to panic. Back on duty and trying his best to stay out of the bottle, Jake finds himself teamed up with two rookie detectives in what will be his most difficult case ever, and possibly his last...

Two Detective/Mystery novellas in one book from two acclaimed authors in the industry.
