TIME TO DIE by SABRINA SIMS McAFEE
Tick Tock! The Killing Begins
A vicious serial killer is murdering wealthy elite men in the thriving city of Miami, when suddenly, the deranged killer sets his eye on his first female victim—SERGEANT GINGER McCORMICK.
Being on Probation Sucks
Internal Affairs of Miami Police Department (MPD) is monitoring GINGER’s every move, causing her to have many sleepless nights. Just when she feels she’ll never get the promotion she’s worked so hard for, she receives a chilling phone call. The Chief regretfully tells her a prominent business tycoon has been found hung in his million dollar estate and she’s assigned to the high profile case.
Turn Up the Heat
Retired Army Officer GRAYLIN GRAINGER returns home after battling in a disastrous war. Haunted by his mother’s death, he’s eager to open his own private investigation firm to assist him with capturing her killer. But his focus changes when he finds his uncle murdered in his home, and he becomes the prime suspect.
The Plot Thickens
As Ginger races against time to find the killer she finds herself in a whirlwind affair with Graylin, the only man she’s ever loved. Problem is—evidence suggest he’s the killer!
An Interview with Sergeant, Ginger McCormick:
Hi. My name is Ginger. If you have a little time, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. Okay, so I’ve already said my name is Ginger, but my close friends and cop buddies call me Storm. My ex-partner, Homicide Detective, Skitch, gave me the nickname Storm after I caught a ruthless killer during a hellified rainstorm in Miami, FL. That was one of the happiest days of my life. But…
Right after I captured Nancy Kingston’s murderer, my ex-boyfriend did something horrible that landed me on probation. Sigh. Sigh. And just when I thought things couldn’t get worse, my best friend husband got murdered, and my new man is the number one suspect. Sweet Jesus! This is so much to handle until I can hardly tell the story.
If you think your head is hurting from reading about my jacked up life, just think about how my head is feeling. Will someone please bring me a cup of coffee with an extra shot and some Excedrin? Well, other than being somewhat of a Tomboy with a high sex drive and loving my job, there’s not much else to tell. Thanks for listening to my story. It helps to vent at times.
Until we meet again, I’m off to catch a ruthless killer lurking the streets of Miami. With a hard slap to my forehead, I’m praying the killer isn’t who I think it is—my new man—hot, Graylin Grainger. Right now, he’s looking guilty!
An Interview with Graylin Grainger:
I’m not the interviewing type and prefer not to talk about myself, so I’m going to cut straight to the chase. Favorite food: Steak. Favorite Hobby: Watching football. Favorite pastime: Use to be women until I reunited with the only woman I’ve ever loved, Ginger.
Speaking of Ginger, it hurts like hell knowing she suspects me of killing several wealthy men in the city of Miami. Is it possible that I did it and can’t remember? Jesus Christ! I hope not.
Just because I’m the beneficiary on a life policy worth millions doesn’t mean squat. In fact so what? Okay yes, I was at the crime scene when the cops burst in. Okay, yes I did do that too. Just stop already. You’re right, I look guilty. This interview is over. Snarling, thanks and um…Goodbye.

Ginger’s silky, red hair paraded down her back in a low ponytail. The skin on her face looked smooth and free of any blemishes. And although she had on a dark navy pants suit, Graylin had gotten a glimpse of her tight butt when she’d turned around earlier. Any man would be lucky to have her. Only a fool like him would let a woman with Ginger’s qualities get away.
Even after many years, Ginger held a special place in his heart. “I never imagined to see you here. When I’d heard a while back that you were a police officer, I was shocked.”
She slightly tilted her head and looked up at him with those beautiful hazel eyes he’d missed over the years. “My career choice shouldn’t have surprised you. My father is a retired cop, and both of my brothers are officers.”
“True. True. But as pretty as you are, I guess I just always imagined you’d be a model, an actress, or run a boutique or something. And with your brains, I imagined you as an executive running a Fortune 100 company.”
Her lips curved into a soft smile. “Thanks for the compliment, but none of that stuff interests me. Putting away the bad guys does.”
“Do you think I’m a bad guy?” he asked, still blown away by this entire nightmare.
“If you’re asking if I think you killed your uncle, my hunch tells me no. But I still have to complete the investigation before I can be certain. I’m going to get your things from booking, and I’ll be right back.” Just as she reached for the door, Graylin gently grabbed her elbow.
She turned to face him. “I didn’t do it, Ginger.”
Her astounding beauty radiated. “Well then, you have nothing to worry about.”
