Richard Norbert is the pen name used by Cam Johnson to make a clear distinction between his two writing genres; one that warms the heart and the other that makes it race.
Writing as Richard Norbert, ViCLAS is his first book under that pseudonym, a psychological thriller that targets a more mature reader.
With his most recent work, he uses his two favourite literary forms: psychological fiction and theology, to create a captivating and memorable novel.
Inspector Rafe Kellar is the brightest ViCLAS Specialists at the RCMP’s Behavioural Science Branch in Ottawa and the best at linking serial crime patterns most others would overlook, but when he discovers multiple, eerily ritualistic homicides committed across provincial and international borders, he’s forced to reach out to the FBI and solicit assistance from a highly unusual source.
Despite the elusiveness of their suspect, Kellar's team hunts the serial killer known as “The Prophet” across two continents as he recreates biblical events in a disturbing portrayal, leaving dead bodies in his sadistic wake toward the climactic sacrifice of his ultimate victim.
