About the Author

I am a thriller, suspense, and horror novelist. My books were first published in 1984 and two of them received an Edgar Award Nomination for best novel and a Bram Stoker Award Nomination for most superior novel. I was born in Alabama and live now in Texas on a small ranch. My work has been predominately suspense thrillers, but I also wrote a western, three vampire novels, a travel memoir, and many short stories. Most of my work has been made available at kindle.com for the e-book reader. I love to read (especially on my Kindle), paint, make quilts, take photographs, and travel. I have two daughters and eight grandchildren. I had two inspiring persons in my life. One was my grandmother, Naomi. And, every day and forever, my husband, who has lived this adventure with me. News of my e-book publications can be found at: http://www.peculiarwriter.blogspot.com

I've been a fan of Mosiman for years (readers of my novel Gamemaster already know that!) She is not one of those authors whose work shows up at the supermarket check out, but rather the hidden gem you can't wait to tell your friends about, because you know they will thank you for it. I remember buying this in trade paperback somewhere in 98 I think (loaned it to one of those "friends" and never got it back) I recently reread the story on it's ebook edition and am happy to say it hasn't lost a bit of it's razor edge. Taunt fiction you could get a paper cut from and enough tension to raise your blood pressure a few notches. Mosiman shows us true horror by forcing us to look at the human monster within us all! Bravo Billie Sue and thanks for making this available again!

I received this book as a gift from the author.

I'm a fan of the genre, so I could be biased here, yet I must admit being surprised by such a masterpiece. I knew Billie Sue Mosiman as en excellent author of supernatural stories, but I didn't know the `true' dark side of her.

As a `Sladist' (a fan of Michael Slade's thrillers, that is), I'm into this kind of literature by the `80s. I'm an avid reader of Val McDermid, Thomas Harris, and lately, Jeff Lindsay. Nonetheless, Wireman reminded me the early Robert Bloch, with its elegant prose and suspense-rising crescendo.
This psychological thriller really hits on your nerves, having your reading experience being like a spook-house: a shock after another.
Her killer makes my Axel J. Hyde (Feeding the Urge) look tame.

Billie Sue Mosiman story is a page-turner of the highest order and was able to let me turn aside a novel from a far-famed author (I'm not going to say his name, for obvious reasons) just to rush to the ending.

Thriller fans, here's the greatest choice for a new adventure into the genre, and we must be thankful to Mrs. Mosiman for transposing this masterpiece on Kindle.

When Nick was ten and Daley was eight, the Ringer siblings knew they were different from other families. Their mother was an abusive drunk, who earned a living selling her body. Her actions made her children the Bloomington, Texas town's pariahs. Daley always hung in the shadows, ready to protect Nick from himself. He would lie for his older brother in order to provide him with an alibi. Nick's forte was to strangle his tormentors' pets because misery was miserable company.
In Nam, Nick and Daley served as Recon Officers. However, when the siblings were separated from their squad, they were trapped deep in Cong territory. In order to survive, Nick had to use the garrote to make a quiet kill of his enemy. When they were rescued, Nick had a breakdown and was hospitalized. He remained confined in the mental ward until Daley returned home. The brothers move to Houston at the same time that someone is decapitating the heads of innocent people, using an MO similar to Nick's Nam experience.
WIREMAN is a taut thriller that keeps the reader on edge from the first page till the novel is finished. This type of book is the true horror novel because the monster is a human, who preys on anyone without the slightest shred of remorse. Billie Sue Mosiman captures the essence of the sociopath so well, readers will buy extra locks to secure their homes in order to gain a slightly disturbed sleep. Fans of realistic horror tales, need to read WIREMAN, one of the sub-genre's best of 1997.

Wireman is a book about a serial killer like no other. How are the police supposed to understand the mind of a serial killer that has no pattern. This book reaches into the darkness and plays on quite a few fears that each of us have, the main one being, are we ever safe.
This book will have your emotions going in so many different directions that it just adds to the suspense and over all fear that you are left with till the very end. This is a must read book for any horror reader or anyone who loves a good dark mystery.
Billie Sue Mosiman has such a wonderful way of making all of her characters so real to the readers that you cannot help but to be pulled into every sentence of the book.
Thank you Billie Sue for all you do!!

I recently finished Wireman, and found the story to be one of those that you have to keep reading because you want to know what happens next, and next, and next...

I'd have liked the bit just before the end (not saying which as I don't want to add spoilers)to be a little clearer, but on the whole a good story and I found the characters of the older cop, and the father easy to believe and well rounded.

I'd have liked a little more background on the brothers and more of a connection to the ribbon. Again, don't want to say too much so as not to spoil it for other readers.

All in all, a great storyline, and the suspense is done well.

This was a real revelation about the training of the special forces when there is a mental issue also involved. It made me think more about what we put our servicemen through and how we expect them to handle their lives when they enter the real world after combat. I enjoyed the book. It was very suspenseful and had a nice twist at the end.
