Yes, I think we should be scared. But don’t worry, I have Zander on speed dial just in case things get nasty.
Tell us your name and a little bit about yourself. I am the Prayer Slayer. At least that is what the papers call me. There is no way you are getting my real name. And no photos either. That’s why I’m wearing a balaclava and using a voice changer.
Where do you live, and why do you choose to live there? I live in Headley Cross or in one of the surrounding villages. You don’t need to know why. And I’m not telling you where, because for obvious reasons I don’t want the police knowing. I’m not finished here yet.
What is a quirk of your personality that people don’t know? Hmmm. I like pickles. And ice-cream. Together. And helping people repent.
Who chronicled your story, and why do you think he/she picked you? I picked her. I always pick the women. I target them. I watch them. Then, when the time is right, I take them.
Can you tell us why you prey on the women of Headley Cross? They broke one of the commandments and they have to pay for their sins.
Will you really stop after ten? Wait and see. (laughs maniacally.)
Okay. Bye. Shows him the door, fast. And goes onto the next thing… Here are some more quotes from this weeks book.
1 “I’m the right height, build, and drive the same make of car.” Zander Ellery
“And so do a hundred and fifty other men, actually. Drive the same car, that is. DI Holmes pulled the DVLA records. Frank and Tony are making a list, checking it twice, finding out if Santa is sticking to the new data protection laws and while they’re at it, checking out all the owners of that make and model in the area.” Isabel York
2 “There’s no rule book that says every serial killer can only kill white women. This bloke is killing people who broke the commandments.” Zander Ellery
3 “…even when we are surrounded, God provides a way out. That instead of telling God how big the lion is, tell the lion how big your God is.” Isabel York
One thought on “Meet the character ~ The Prayer Slayer”
I’m anxious to meet him, well, not really. Great glimpses into your series, Clare. I’m going to read them back to back.
