Exclusive excerpt:

Four years he’d been doing this, and still no one had discovered who he was. He planned to keep it that way. They called him the phantom, an illusion without material substance like a dream image because he appeared only in the dark and then was gone. The description suited him well. No one ever saw or heard him, knowing him only by the trail of destruction he left, with no clues to his identification.

He had begun his cleansing, as he called it, after an episode reminded him just what evil lurked beneath people’s socially acceptable expressions. Not that he’d ever forgotten; he’d just buried it deep so he could build a new life. He wondered what would have happened if, driven by his own past, he’d never decided after that episode to dig deep into the dark web.

His kills were specific targets, chosen by him for the particular sins they committed. He did his research carefully, knowing the signs to look for. The world knew them as highly praised contributors to society, wealthy businessmen, international leaders, politicians, even royalty. All of them masqueraded as philanthropists and do-gooders, icons of society. No one saw beneath the masks they wore with such ease. In reality they had black souls and evil in their hearts. But the phantom always saw beneath the surface and knew the heinous sins they committed. They were the vilest of the vile, and he believed it his duty to punish them, rid the world of them.

He’d only been wrong once in the targets he’d chosen. He’d had a hard time dealing with that, especially when deeper research showed him a mistake had been made, so he’d backed off for a while, but that didn’t last long. Every time he logged onto the dark web and did a search, the rage built inside him again. He really believed he was doing society a service. How could it be a crime to erase a stain on humanity?

One day he might rest but not yet. Not with so much evil still in the world.

His missions, as he called them, were carried out with such stealth and planning that nothing ever tracked back to him, not even the little “gift” he left on each body. No one knew who he was, where he came from, or what fed his killing desires. Because his “projects” occurred in so many different countries and cities, he became the subject of international law enforcement agencies. No problem. He actually laughed when he read the media accounts.
