One man kills people.  Another man tries to save them.

Ethan, a City of Ottawa paramedic, accidentally becomes embroiled in a series of brutal, seemingly unrelated killings. However, Ethan finds a strange connection between them, which he passes on to his lifelong friend, now a detective. Sometimes it takes an outsider to piece together the puzzle.
Ethan comes face to face with the killer.

And this is just the beginning.

Everyone thought the Second World War ended April 30th, 1945 with Hitler’s death.

In 2013, Ethan Tennant, a Paramedic for the City of Ottawa, discovers more than a body on Parliament Hill.   He unwittingly unleashes a secret that began almost seventy years ago and still hasn’t been revealed.  Some people want to keep what he found a secret, others want the world to know.  Certain secrets are never meant to be known.

Hitler’s dream may not have died with his death.

In the summer of 2000, Ethan Tennant, Tom Lister and Galen Hoese work together to catch a killer.

Young and innocent girls play in the summer heat, only to fall prey to the worse type of death possible.  Parents, neighbours and the police are frustrated by the lack of progress on the case.  The killer, always a step ahead, seems to know more than the police investigating the crimes.  It’s not until Ethan and his new girlfriend, become involved, that the pieces of the puzzle begin to form a complete picture.  But does anyone really want to see what has remained hidden for so long?

A terrifying tale of claustrophobia reveals a dark secret even more disturbing than the present ordeal. What should be an idyllic family reunion turns to trauma when a demon from the past reappears to claim its victim. An innocent girl investigating a series of brutal murders becomes warped in ways one cannot imagine. And a pit stop along a long highway drive may lead to love, or it may be the final destination in a bizarre twist of fate…

Mystery novelist Perry Prete returns with Highway 7: 4 Dark Tales, an anthology of unsettling horror stories that are sure to leave you shivering as you triple-check your locked door. Get ready to experience a weird world as you journey along Highway 7!

Nicole Blake is a quiet girl, the type of person who is seldom noticed by anyone, until one day, she discovers she has a unique ability to see images move on photographs.

Paul Hammond, a seasoned detective, with a secret to hide, learns of Nicole’s ability, and convinces her to help with a series of unsolved murders in their small town.
