Robert S. Stering’s second book, Imagen:
A Serial Killer Leaves Puzzling Clues, is a fictional work that takes the reader inside the mind of both the
killer and the victim. According to the book description, “A serial killer is stalking the community.
He leaves subtle clues. Or are they? The murders are perfect, the clues and evidence left, break all traditional investigative
formalities. The book is unique in the way you interpret the emotions. With a clever switching of tenses, the author allows
you the reader to be the victim and the killer. You feel the pain, and emotions of the victim. You experience the excitement,
the thoughts and the reasoning of the Killer. Both visions bring you to the point of death. With the author’s experiences
and knowledge of the field, the book offers a close-up and front seat realistic view of the investigative process.”
