After the death of his wife and child, Skip blames himself. He has given up his friends, his job and now, devoid of all hope, he survives on the mean streets of Albany.

With Maine teenage corpses stacking up and her life crumbling around her, Lead Detective Priscilla Harris seeks out a red-gloved stalker who is either a murderer or a saint.A message from the author:Dear Readers,Thank you so much for continuing to support my efforts. Without you, I would still be stacking notebook pages in desk drawers.The world has changed a lot since I created The Santa Shop in the early-2000s, but as I revisited Skip, I was shocked at how little his surroundings had changed. He still has no cellphone, no state-of-the-art laptop, and certainly no computer pad. Instead, he has a heart full of grief and a group of people around him who want him to live as badly as he wants to die. In this new telling, I have attempted to capture the flavor of a world that has pushed forward a full decade, while at the same time remaining true to the characters that I--and I hope you--grew to love when this story was first written.Many of you may know that I had a difficult childhood--not the worst, but certainly not one that I would wish upon anyone else. Today, as a full-time writer, I find that I have come full circle, that with each story my life becomes a little more complete, a little more healed. From the deepest core of me, I thank you for making that possible. And my fondest wish is that this new view of Skips story will help others to begin their own healing journey.Your friend always,Tim Greaton
