Synopsis

Would you help, would you run, or would you just watch? When a young woman is brutally assaulted by two men on the subway, her cries for help fall on the deaf ears of onlookers too terrified to get involved, her misery ended with the crushing stomp of a steel-toed boot. A cell phone video of her vicious murder, callously released on the Internet, its popularity a testament to today's depraved society, serves as a trigger, pulled a year later, for a killer. Emailed a video documenting the final moments of a woman's life, entertainment reporter Aynslee Kai, rather than ask why the killer chose her to tell the story, decides to capitalize on the opportunity to further her career. Assigned to the case is Hayden Eldridge, a detective left to learn the ropes by a disgraced partner, and as videos continue to follow victims, he discovers they were all witnesses to the vicious subway murder a year earlier, proving sometimes just watching is fatal. From the bestselling author of The Protocol comes Depraved Difference, a fast-paced murder suspense novel with enough laughs, heartbreak, terror and twists to keep you on the edge of your seat, then knock you flat on the floor with an ending so shocking, you'll read it again just to pick up the clues.

J. Robert Kennedy wrote his first story when he was five.Everyone in it died.Things didn't get much better from there. After horrifying his teachers in creative writing classes he took an extended hiatus, returning to writing on a whim, haunted by the image of a woman standing in tall grass, the blades streaming through her fingers. The result was a short story, written in a single evening, Does It Matter?And then he let it sit.A couple of years later he let several friends read it and they encouraged him to try and get it published. He submitted it to The Sink and it was immediately accepted. Encouraged, he wrote a second story, Loving the Ingredients, and it too was accepted, along with a reprint of Does It Matter? by The Writers Post Journal.With several publishing credits under his belt, he was ready for something bigger. A phone conversation with a best friend led to Robert writing his first novel, The Protocol. Lachesis Publishing, the first publisher he sent it to, agreed to publish it and cloud nine got a little more crowded.His next effort, Depraved Difference, was accepted for publication by a diferent publisher, however he turned down the offer, and decided to publish it independently on the Kindle, allowing him to offer his books at the prices he felt readers wanted to pay for eBooks.Robert was born in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, and grew up an Air Force brat, living in Halifax and Greenwood, Nova Scotia, Goose Bay, Labrador, Lahr and Baden, Germany, and finally Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. He escaped his parent's clutches to attend university in Waterloo and settled in Ottawa, Ontario. Robert has a wife and daughter, and is hard at work on his next novel.
