In “Eyes of Cold Case Killers,” Neilsen and the Alpha Team pursue a cold case serial killer named Taurus over four jurisdictions (Fairfax, Arlington, Falls Church, Alexandria) in Northern Virginia.

ARLINGTON, Va. – Charles Toftoy takes readers on an exciting adventure of murder, crime and much more in his novel “Eyes of Cold Case Killers” (ISBN 1461010136). He uses up-to-date police language and techniques to make his book more realistic and believable.

Lars Neilsen, a professor and sleuth, and his highly specialized Alpha Team are together again to assist local police with murder cases in the nation’s capital. 

Toftoy educates readers on the details that go into solving police cases and, more specifically, the effects they can have on the families of the victims. He also highlights the tireless efforts of the detectives who work the cases, as they often go unnoticed or unappreciated in real life.
