Recently named a "PageTurner" by Shelf Unbound magazine, NABE Pinnacle Thriller winner, an E-Lit Gold Medal winner (Horror)and 2 time Silver Feather (IWPA) winner , The Color of Evil series details the adventures of the young man (Tad McGreevy) with the power to detect auras around others (Tetrachromatic Super Vision) and to relive the crimes of those with "the color of evil" in his dreams.

Khaki = Killer, the third book in the Color of Evil Series, picks up where Red Is for Rageleft off, answering the question, "What happened to Melody (Harris) Carpenter?"

Readers of Red Is for Rage, [Book #2 in The Color of Evil series], will remember that Melody was involved in a rescheduled UNI (University of Northern Iowa) football game, cheering for the Sky High Eagles. Rushed to the hospital with injuries suffered in a fall from atop the human pyramid [formed by fellow cheerleaders Heather, Kelly, Janice, Angie, and Jenny, Melody is hospitalized and fighting for her life as Khaki = Killer opens.

The budding romance between Janice and Stevie continues to grow more serious, but Janice's parents oppose her relationship with the son of the man who shot and killed so many townsfolk at the Homecoming game. There are more revelations about Earl Scranton's motives, and other romance s develop (Tad and Jenny; Charlie and Andrea).

When Heather Crompton and Kelly Carter mysteriously disappear, the tension in town ratchets to a fever pitch. The entire town is involved in the search. Retired police officer Charlie Chandler reorganizes the rag-tag team that helped find Stevie Scranton and bring him back to Cedar Falls, Iowa.

In the background lurks Michael Clay (aka, Pogo), still searching for Tad McGreevy, still hoping to permanently silence "the boy who can see the future."

Tensions run high and the stakes run even higher in KHAKI = KILLER, Book #3 in THE COLOR OF EVIL series.

Praise for The Color of Evil Series:

"Wilson makes all this count and mixes the ugly and the good in ways that can turn out to be rewarding for readers...There are moments of a real gift here...deft touches...especially between Stevie (Scranton) and his girlfriend, that are quite touching and even inspired...So, I remain happy to follow this series, I am assuming this series will reach a conclusion and I cannot wait to see how Wilson writes it."-
Andy Andrews, True Review

"Connie Corcoran Wilson weaves a deftly fine scalpel in an age where a crude blade is more the norm. Her work is a smooth, subtle hybrid mix of science fiction, thriller, and horror that realizes a unique and pointed vision in the great tradition of Phillip K. Dick and Ray Bradbury. Her voice is a wonder to behold, at once dark and somber while maintaining a glimmer of hope that shines in the hearts of her heroes, who cling to the light. Like Stephen King, nothing escapes her discerning eye, the result of which is tale after tale that bleed life onto the page, both literally and figuratively."-Jon Land, bestselling author of the Caitlin Strong Series

"Connie Wilson is back--She's good! She's DAMN good! In a world of mainly bad-to-fair writers, she stands above the crowd with plot, description , and strong character. Believe me, you'll enjoy her latest! that's a guarantee!...She's a born storyteller!"-William F. Nolan, Living Legend in Dark Fantasy, "Logan's Run," "Logan's World," "Nightworlds"
"Wilson's characters come alive on the page. Comparisons to Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Philip K. Dick aside, Wilson has spent 33 years teaching students in this age range. She knows what she is talking about."-Gary Braver, author of "Flashback" and 8 other thrillers.

"THE COLOR OF EVIL series is old-school psychological horror, artfully blended with new-school shocks and twists. ..Bravo!" -Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author, multiple Bram Stoker winner

Praise for Red is For Rage (Book 2 of The Color of Evil Series:

"I didn't find this book as scary/creepy as I did The Color of Evil, it was more eerie. I knew that something was going to happen, I just didn't know what or when. Ms. Wilson introduced a number of side stories that each could have been the 'big one'. Again, I found myself wanting to continue reading to find out which of these stories would develop furthest. I wasn't able to complete the reading in one sitting, but I was back up early in the morning to finish."-Heather Pearson, Books and Quilts

"Connie Corcoran Wilson's has become another favorite go-to storyteller. The Color of Evil and Red is for Rage, is reminiscent of a Stephen King novel. Mr. King had a knack of making the all American small town a nest of unimaginable horror. Well, Ms. Wilson has also accomplished that in her tales.

The incredible twists and turns the author takes the reader on; the in-depth characterizations that Author Connie Corcoran Wilson employs is exceptional; the reader becomes intimate with the characters, an affectionate bond grows, with the reader finding those characters in which to root for.

Red is for Rage was a good story, disturbing in spots but this was due to the authors skill at creating a very realistic plot line. The story flowed smoothly, the action steady."-Michelle Cornwell-Jordon, Author "Tourmentin" "Kindred" "Chrysalis"

"I have not read the first book in this series "The Color of Evil" but had no problem picking up on what was going on in " Red is for Rage" . Suspenseful and Intriguing. After I started reading I quickly became absorbed and anticipating what would come next . Connie does a great job of bringing it all together in one book. I highly recommend reading ."- Heather Beldon, Saving for Six

"If you're looking for a book full of adventure and action then this is the one for you. I can say that Ms. Wilson did a wonderful job with Tad, and his unique abilities which we learn more about in this novel. I also think that she knows her characters quite well. She left me craving the next book, which says something. Especially since I tend to avoid these types of tales where there is so much darkness, but I could see that little glimmer of hope, the little bits of light through the darkness and it left me wanting more.

We also get to see a bit more of Stevie in this book which was nice since he had gone missing early in book 1. And Michael Clay, aka Pogo the Clown, just reinforced my hatred of clowns! He doesn't have as big a role in this book, but still plays a part in continuing the story line. He is a great character that we all love to hate!

I recommend it to ages 16 and older. While it deals with some sticky situations it does it in such a classy manner that it will suck you into the world she has created."-CondyGirl, Recent Reads
