Killian Kendall Mysteries

Bleeding Hearts
A Killian Kendall Mystery
Josh Atervois



Teen sleuth Killian Kendall struggles with coming out under the shadow of a lethal hate crime in small town Maryland.


Even the most idyllic small town has dangerous currents just under the surface -- like abuse, bigotry and hate.


And murder.


Killian Kendall is a small-town teen whose whole world is about to be turned upside down. The new kid in school is openly gay and, despite himself, Killian finds himself drawn to him. When the boy is killed in a brutal attack, and Killian is injured in the process, Killian begins to questions everything around him.


The police seem eager to write the attack off as a random mugging, but Killian knows better. Unable to ignore the injustice, Killian launches his own investigation, and everyone is a suspect -- even his closest friends. His search turns up hatred in small town America. Before it's over, more people will die, and Killian's life will be on the line again.


Bleeding Hearts is the first book in the Killian Kendall Mystery Series.

Will's life is changing so quickly he can't keep up. He's moving out of his parents' home for the first time, changing careers, making new friends, and falling in love with the person he least expected. In the process, he's also learning a lot about himself.


As if he doesn't have enough going on, his life-long best friend dies in what appears to be a drunken accident. But when Will receives a note hinting that it may not have been an accident after all, he finds that he can't rest until he knows the truth.


Will enlists the help of Killian Kendall and his friends and, together, they begin an investigation that will result in even more death. Will thought the biggest changes were behind him, but they had only just begun.


"For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind."

Killian Kendall is excited to start his post-high school life with a new job as an assistant to a private investigator, but he's barely settled at his new desk when his ex-boyfriend calls with a desperate plea for help. He wants Killian to prove his new boyfriend didn't kill his father in a shockingly brutal ax murder.


Despite his misgivings, Killian reluctantly agrees to take the case, but his investigation is further complicated when the prime suspect isn't exactly cooperative. Killian even has doubts about the boy's innocence.


To find answers, Killian teams up with a handsome reporter...and sparks fly. But the closer they get to the truth, the more desperate the killer becomes.


Will Killian discover the murderer before it's too late?
