Maria Dersch prophetically predicted her death at the savage hands of her ex-boyfriend, Billy Ray Shaughnessy, who hid in her attic for two and a half days with an ax before sneaking down in the dead of night, chopping Maria and her new lover to death.
In The Attic is an intense, shocking, and unforgettable psychological crime thriller based on the horrific, true murder case Garry Rodgers investigated as an actual detective.It’s also told from the killer’s point of view through his lyrical, psychotic, and homicidal thoughts.
In this lightning-paced, mind-twisting, psychological ride, you’re suspended in a six-day investigation and search for Billy Ray after Maria reported a violent, knife-point, sexual assault committed by him on a Friday afternoon.
Over the weekend, police and friends made a frantic attempt to lock Billy Ray from the house and track him down to prevent escalation. They failed. He’d been in the attic the entire time.
At 3 a.m., on Sunday morning and in the black of night, Billy Ray climbed down. He butchered Maria and her defenseless lover, committing unspeakable desecration to their bodies. Billy Ray aimlessly left the crime scene—a senseless scene sickening to the hardest of investigators—and was caught three days later, still caked with his victims’ blood.
Billy Ray confessed, allowing a terrifying yet fascinating access to his psychopathic, anti-social mind—a mind diagnosed as one of the most outstanding cases of mental disorder a team of forensic psychiatrists ever saw.Here’s what readers of In The Attic are saying:
“Aghast! This is one of the best written and easily the most horrifying suspense story I have read. The writing is so clear and so compelling that you are immediately drawn in. I. Could. Not. Put. This. Down.”
“The author’s seamless POV transitions are genius. You’re given a disquieting look into the deeply disturbed, misogynistic psyche of a killer and the concern of a dedicated, seasoned police officer.”
“As events unfolded, I found myself praying the victim would somehow survive, which is absurd, as you know going in, the story is about a double murder. Garry Rodgers’ writing is so fluid, he places you in the detective’s shoes without effort—you’re there, you’re experiencing scenes as they unfold. I’m not prone to nightmares by something I’ve read, but Garry Rodgers has succeeded where others left little, or no impact.”
“Do not let the horrific and graphic nature of this novel dissuade you. This is a must-read for crime novel enthusiasts. I felt driven to finish this book in record time. True story, great writing, emotional investment. What more could you want from a title?”
“In my opinion, Garry Rodgers is slated to become one of the most outstanding crime writers of our time.”

Review of In The Attic by Garry Rodgers
The truly gripping aspect of this book? It’s a true story. My and I just this past year moved into an older home he inherited from his parents. And inside one of the closets, if that’s what you would call it was very shallow and narrow with a ladder built in for getting into the attic. The opening to the attic had no covering and I could absolutely not stand opening that door with a big dark hole with it’s attic air breathing in on me! So I took a moving box and cut a piece to fit the hole and took my trusty house stapler and closed that baby up. Problem solved. Never gave it another thought and all was well. Then you, Mr. Rodgers tells this TRUE story so fittingly titled… IN THE ATTIC. If only I hadn’t read it ! Trust me when I say I got jist of it…..no good comes from any attics or basements!!!
This book may be to much for the faint hearted to read. Some of the descriptions are really way out there. A woman is threatened by a boyfriend she threw out her house. She told the cops she was afraid he was going to kill her. She had a small child – which he loved and never would have hurt. He was hard to find and keep track of. Why ,cause he never really left. It heats up in the end with lots of gruesome things happening. But the baby is safe , but not so much for others.
