What do you do when you know you’re on a serial killer’s hit list?
Six women are dead, and Wren Addison is the next victim on the SMS Killer’s list—or so she’s been told after waking in a pool of blood with no memory of the events that have transpired.
Newly separated and struggling to start her life over after her husband’s infidelity, Wren tries to remember what happened to her, but nothing is adding up as more horrors unfold around her. With her life on a timer and the murderer taunting her, she realizes there is nothing typical about this serial killer.
Wren is pushed to the edge as she dances between knowing she’s likely to die and fighting to be the first to survive. As the truth starts to emerge, she rises to the challenge and decides not to go down without a fight.
Someone is going to die, and she’s determined it won’t be her.

International Amazon bestselling author Rachael Tamayo is a former 911 emergency operator and police dispatcher. After twelve years in those dark depths, she’s gained a unique insight into mental illness, human behaviour, and the general darkness of humanity that she likes to weave into her books. A formerly exclusive romance author tried her hand at thrillers in her award-winning novel, “Crazy Love,” and loved it so much that she decided not to turn back. Born and raised in Texas, Rachael lives in the Houston area with her husband of almost fifteen years, and their two young children.
Q&A with Rachael Tamayo
Welcome and thank you for stopping by CMash Reads
What was the inspiration for this book?
The seven deadly sins. I am striving to make each sin its own twisted tale, and hopefully a bit different than the reader would expect. Carnal Knowledge is a tale of lust, but nothing that you would ever expect.
Do you draw from personal experiences and/or current events?
Well, considering that it’s about a serial killer, I can say it’s not about personal experience, ha! Just my knowledge of mental illness, police procedure, and the like. I pulled it all together into this book.
Are any of your characters based on people that you know?
No, I have never been brave enough to do that. I create people in my head and put them into their own world in the books. They are entirely fictional.
Your routine when writing? Any idiosyncrasies?
I can write anywhere the mood hits me. I don’t outline or plan, I just go when it hits me. I’ve been known to write on my phone in a doctors’ waiting room before. I’m not picky. I have a distinct ability to focus and tune out things when I need to, and I will use it to write if I have to, no matter where I am.
Tell us why we should read your book?
It’s dark and mysterious. It’s twisted, shocking, and it’s different. You will be surprised in the end, and you won’t see any of it coming.
Are you working on your next novel? If so, can you tell us a little bit about it?
Yes, book three in the series is about the sin of greed. It’s titled: Mine. Expect it out sometime next year, and it’s full of plot twists that will leave you with whiplash.
What are you reading now?
Right now I’m reading The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, by Grady Hendrix. I love it!
Your novel will be a movie. Who would you cast?
I never know how to answer this one. I would love to hear readers answer this one for me.
Favorite leisure activity/hobby>?
I have two small kids, so I don’t get much down time. When I do, I like to lay in the sun, swim, have a glass of wine, or watch a movie with my family.
Either tacos with everything topped with salsa and sour cream, or a burger and fries (hold the pickles please!)
Either one and Im a happy camper. Of course, I also love it when my husband makes stuffed bacon wrapped jalapenos, yum!
