The Color Of Evil

Tad McGreevy has a power that he has never revealed, not even to his best friend, Stevie. Tad sees colored auras that tell him if a person is good or evil. Tad dreams about the evil-doers, reliving their crimes in vivid detail. Tad doesn’t know if the evil acts he witnesses in his nightmares are happening now, are already over, or will occur in the future. He has no control over the horrifying visions. He has been told never to speak of his power. All Tad knows is that he wants to protect those he loves. And he wants the bad dreams to stop.

About The Series

What makes this series unique?

Tad must wage a silent war against those who would harm the ones he loves.

Tad McGreevy possesses a special power that allows him to see auras around others, and later at night, relive the crimes of those with the color of evil (khaki). Tad doesn’t know whether the events he experiences in his nightmares are happening now, happened in the past, or are going to happen in the future.

About the first installment in THE COLOR OF EVIL, Jonathan Maberry said, “old-school psychological horror, artfully blended with new-school shocks and twists.” The mysteries begin to deepen at the end of Book 1, when a main character disappears. The stakes heighten in RED IS FOR RAGE as we are introduced to Daniel Malone and learn of his penchant for kidnapping underage boys.

Tad loves Jenny SanGiovanni and Stevie is smitten with Janice Kramer. Even the adults get into the act, as Jenny’s mother marries a former policeman. Some of the romances are bound to fail, but more romance awaits and more heartbreak with it.

If you possessed a power that, might predict the future, what do you think would happen to you?

Connie Wilson is back—and the return trip will be a joy to her readers. I’ve praised her work in the past and am happy to repeat the performance here and now. 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 characters. Believe me, you’ll enjoy her latest! That’s a guarantee! Go Connie!

There are just some stories that stick with you and Connie Corcoran Wilson’s do just that. From the moment you open the first page you’re sucked into this other world where you’re never sure if that sound you heard was just outside your window or just in your head. I loved every page of this book and you will too!!!! Blockquote Image

A fantastic tale of good and evil and those in-between…We get the sense that there will be more to come…When something takes hold of you and leads you on a journey full of twists and turns, you might be satisfied but you definitely want to experience it again. Experience it for yourself and you’ll see what I mean. Blockquote Image

Heart-pounding Thriller, Violent but Hopeful “Red is for Rage” is the second book in Ms. Wilson’s “The Color of Evil” series (I also reviewed the first), and I certainly hope that there will be a third entry, because the author hooks us at the end with a cliffhanger, which left this reviewer hungering for more: answers, characters, continuation of the several plots and subplots. As always, Ms. Wilson juggles a large cast of characters, develops each, and keeps plots going on all the burners. If you’re looking for action, it’s here; suspense, it’s here; mystery, romance, adventure, thrills–“Red is for Rage” has them all…. Blockquote Image

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 story flowed smoothly, the action steady.

I have to know what happens to everyone. The book was full of drama, terror and intrigue. But also full of characters with deep friendships and relationships and also a dose of humor thrown in. The book was extremely well written and I was never bored. The story flowed smoothly even though there are lots of characters to keep up with. I was invested in knowing what would happen with every single one of them. The book kept me riveted to the page. I had to know what would happen next. SO much so, that it only took me a few days to read all three books in the series. Blockquote Image
