Do you ever have to stop yourself and make sure you’re operating at a normal human rate?

In his new horror novel “The Landlord’s Shadow” (published by iUniverse), author Jake Warner crafts a terrifying tale of serial murders and innocent victims.

Twenty-five-year-old Big Ralph moves to the quaint university town of Bowling Blue, Ohio, as a new landlord. He promises free rent to students if they help work on his ramshackle house, and it’s not long before he finds his ideal candidates. An easy life on Raised Hare Road soon begins, along with school and plenty of parties.

Unfortunately for Ralph and his friends, a young, dangerous psychopath escapes from a psychiatric ward and goes on the warpath. Cristina wants revenge for the murder of her mother, and she must find her criminal father to do so. In the meantime, she enjoys her life as a serial killer.

Will Big Ralph and his young tenants get in the deadly way of one woman’s endless, insane search for vengeance?

An excerpt from “The Landlord’s Shadow”:

“‘I have to remind myself to breathe sometimes, Ralph. It gets overwhelming. Do you ever have to stop yourself and make sure you’re operating at a normal human rate?’
‘Hah! Define normal.’”
