Daniel House

Product Details 

(from Amazon) 

Find out why Jimmy decided to become a serial killer. Jimmy Harden was a man that had it all, a beautiful wife, a nice house, and a promising career in the Army. When he returned from his latest deployment to Afghanistan he found that things had changed. His wife had filed for divorce and took out a restraining order barring him from both her and their house. Devastated and dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder, he moved into a rundown trailer park and tried to make due as best that he could. Every day he thought about how he could get her back. His options were limited so after reading an article he came up with the idea that he could become a famous serial killer. He figured that fame, regardless of how he achieved it would bring Beth running back to him. Once Jimmy begins the killing he gets the attention of the local news station that quickly begins referring to him as "Doctor Death." He also garners the attention of the police and a hard-nosed detective named Jake Bedre who tirelessly tries to catch him. Step inside and see if becoming a serial killer gives Jimmy the fame he needs to win back his wife, or will Detective Bedore put an end to both him and his killing spree.
