A Child Is Torn (Whitley & Keal Mystery Book 1) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

When dependable Evan Madison fails to show up for work, police are dispatched to his home. His ten-year-old son, Brad, is discovered inside, unharmed and seemingly alone. He is stoic, sitting in front of the television playing his favorite video game, Super Mario–and he’s covered in blood.

Veteran Police Officer Marty Keal is the first on the scene. With his many years of experience, he thinks he’s seen it all. That is, until he discovers Brad’s not really alone after all. Upstairs in their bedroom lies the brutally bludgeoned and deceased bodies of both Brad’s mother and father. When questioned, Brad confesses to the horrific murders. When Brad is transferred to a local mental health institution for children, Dr. Hope Rubin is brought in to evaluate and treat the child.

A preliminary investigation shows no evidence of any kind of mistreatment in his past. She must determine the disturbing truth: Is Brad telling the truth? Or is he covering for someone else?

Detective Jean Whitely rounds out the investigative team; and she suspects there is much more to the case than what meets the eye. The happily married mother of two is unwavering in her determination to uncover the real truth about Brad. Was he abused? Or is he the product of an evil seed born to kill?

As the layers of truth about Brad are systematically peeled away, you will be compelled to ask yourself, which is the more dominate factor in contributing to who we are–NATURE or NURTURE?

Faceless (Whitley & Keal Mystery Book 2) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

Fallsburg, New York has a killer on the loose—one who’s leaving their sadistic, telltale marks on innocent victims.

A pretty teenage girl is found dead in the woods, her face horribly mutilated. A few days later, a second girl, also strikingly beautiful, is attacked in a similar fashion. Who would do such a brutal thing—and why? Is there some sort of psychopathic monster lurking out there, preying upon vulnerable females? Or are the victims being targeted by someone they know?

It’s up to two of Fallsburg’s finest; Detective Jean Whitley and her new partner, Marty Keal, to find out who’s responsible. When Jean starts digging up clues, she is startled to learn that the crime has hit uncomfortably close to home. The victims–and many of the potential suspects–are classmates of Jean’s fourteen-year-old daughter Bethany. To make matters worse, Bethany’s behavior has drastically changed. Jean’s sweet, loving child has become a sullen, secretive stranger. How much does Bethany really know about the victims–and the crimes that are taking place? Does Bethany’s hunky, new heartthrob have anything to do with the crimes? And why does the mounting evidence keep pointing to a popular parish priest?

Suddenly deprived of her longtime police detective mentor and friend, Jean is forced to take the lead in this latest investigation while breaking in a new partner. As they dig deeper into the case, Jean encounters threats to her career, her family relationships…and quite possibly to her own daughter’s life. Through it all, Jean and Marty must unravel a multi-layered mystery and put a face on the unseen villain before anyone else ends up dead…and faceless.

Stolen (Whitley & Keal Mystery Book 3) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

Another homicide has rocked the small town of Fallsburg, New York.

In a cabin nestled deep in the woods, two male victims are discovered, both gunshot victims. One is deceased the other one is barely alive. But it is not the murder itself that has detectives Jean Whitley and her new partner Marty Keal frantic to find out the answers of what occurred in that cabin, but it is the identities of the two small children also found at the scene.

One child is quickly identified, but the other, a young boy, remains a mystery. The only one with possible answers is the man who lays critically wounded and unconscious in the hospital, because the unidentified boy either cannot or will not speak.

What happened in that cabin that left one man dead and another barely hanging on…?

Keeping Hope Alive (Whitley & Keal Book 4) by Dawn Kopman Whidden

A young couple taking a leisurely walk through the woods are shocked when their quiet, peaceful stroll ends as they come across what is, without question, a human skull.

When Detectives Jean Whitley and Marty Keal are called to investigate, two more bodies are uncovered nearby in shallow graves, but unlike the first, these murder victims have just met their demise. Now not only do the detectives have to discover the identities of all three victims but have to see if the victims are somehow connected or if it’s just a coincidence all three were dumped so close together?

While Jean and Marty search for the answers, Marty’s fiancé, Psychiatrist Dr. Hope Rubin, is working hard to get her patient Brad Madison released from Armistace Hospital for Children, where he has been living since the brutal murder of his own parents, while trying to take care of her own personal business of planning her wedding. But then the unforeseeable happens. Hope disappears and Brad claims he knows what happens. Can the disturbed boy be trusted to be telling the truth and is Hope’s kidnapping in any way linked to the three victims found in the nearby woods?

Marty and Jean’s search for the killer become much more desperate and horrifyingly personal when Hope is kidnapped. Will they find her before it’s too late? Or will she become another victim?

Will the detectives be able to KEEP HOPE ALIVE?

Twenty years ago, she traded in her days of living in the bustling city for a more serene and tranquil life on a small farm in the town of Bell, located in North Central Florida.

STOLEN takes the GOLD IN READER’S FAVORITE CONTEST

The world is full of crazy people. Once upon a time, stories like the ones that Grimm Brother’s wrote were just something that came from their imagination. Classic tales of stepmothers serving her new husband’s children for dinner… (not for dinner, but THE DINNER) Crazy old ladies putting lost children in an oven.

Today the craziest and most inexcusable things happen to the most vulnerable, and its reality not fantasy. I hope that my story never finds its way into a local newspaper…but who knows. Anything can happen and it does.
