Hello and welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Linda Prather’s latest thriler Innocent Blood.  I am delighted to be able to share a guest post with you today written by Linda about characters that make her cringe, so get comfortable and enjoy!  Oh and don’t forget to check out the other stops on the blog tour for some fantastic reviews!

INNOCENT 6 FINAL

Description:

Loki Redmond swore she’d never return to the reservation, but two missing hunters and the ancient Choctaw myth of Nalusa Falaya take her and her brother, Dadron, on a dangerous trek through the wilderness.

Meanwhile, her partner Jake Savior, heads to Tunica, Mississippi, to investigate the second mass killing by a Choctaw police officer. 

Are the cases connected?

The only thing they know for sure is innocent blood has been shed, and unless they can find the source more are going to die.

WRITING CHARACTERS THAT MAKE ME CRINGE
Robert from The Forgotten
Working in the criminal justice system in the USA I’ve had the opportunity to see different types of scenarios of crime that made me cringe inside. A huge fan of shows like Criminal Minds I would often find myself looking at the evidence, studying the victims and the perpetrators looking for an explanation. I also do that with my characters. Delving into their dark minds, looking for that one glimmer of something good, or simply some explanation for their crimes.
There were times as Robert’s character developed when I wondered if there was good somewhere deep inside him.Perhaps a redeeming quality that made him worth saving. As time went on, I realized that some minds are damaged beyond our understanding. Things have just become too twisted and warped. Although I occasionally felt sympathy for Robert, I found no redeeming qualities to exploit.
Robert is a handsome young man, with a charming smile, dark eyes, and the heart of a crazed killer. He feels no sympathy for his mother’s victims, nor for his own perverted pleasures. He would most likely be diagnosed as criminally insane. There are moments of lucid thought when you’ll almost feel he’s about to change. Don’t get taken in by his charm. Raised by his insane mother, his crime spree started at the tender age of ten, but his madness started long before that—along with his hatred of dogs and animals.
Some fascinating passages from Robert’s mind:
The Indian had looked at him long and hard, but it wasn’t as though she was looking at him. Instead she was looking through him, seeing inside him. Way down deep to the part of him no one knew and no one saw. I should have killed her and the dog.
Suffering doesn’t always mean dead. The dog had suffered too, but it was still breathing, still snarling and growling. What if the girl lived?
He’d learned early to keep his urges in check by working with the old and feeble. There was something cathartic about watching them slowly waste away, their eyes constantly searching the hallways in hopes of a visit from a relative, or a friendly face. They were the real forgotten. Put out to pasture to rot from the inside out.
Love a twisted killer? Then you’ll thoroughly enjoy Robert.
