Mitt Winstead

Author Mitt Winsteadabout this book: Day Stalker was loosely based on a true story in Tucson, Arizona, during the late 60s. The foothills rapist was an elusive and dangerous cocaine addict with nine lives. I wanted to write this book because of the difficulty law enforcement had trying to catch this individual. The story had real backbone for a murder mystery.

The cover was similar to my first murder mystery, Evil in the Mirror, but the story was quite different. Research was easy because I was there during the real event. I kept the timeline similar, but the content of this book is pure fiction.

While this is my second book of a trilogy, it took a few months longer to write because I wanted to make sure that, even though the cops were the same, the story was totally different. After this book was published, I knew (because of the reviews) that the first one was not a fluke. I knew how to write a real murder mystery.

This book is not Miss Marple and not for the squeamish!



• This author has done it AGAIN with "Day Stalker"...this second murder mystery of the trilogy he's working on is so entertaining, gripping, fast-paced, and easy to read--I loved it! Wish he could put them out FASTER, as his talent is amazing!!

• Once again, Mitt Winstead succeeds in leaving you glued to the book of his second novel, anxiously waiting to see how the story unravels. Day Stalker is a smooth succession for the detectives from Winstead's first novel (Evil in the Mirror).

• "Day Stalker". It's finally out and I finished it last night. It did not disappoint! He continues to tell a great story that keeps the reader wanting more!!!
