Is this a good idea for a thriller novel?

Here the plot:

Michael Smith is a kind-hearted young businessman with a dark side, he is a psychopathic serial killer who preys on, sleeps with and kills young women and buries them in their undergarments in the yard of his estate in New York and has a red rose planted above each of their graves. One day, while in Manhattan, he meets a beautiful, young fashion store clerk named Annie Veal and both fall in love with each other and get married. Annie's life with Michael is a dream come true but when she finds out about Michael's secrets, her life suddenly becomes a living hell of despair. She then escapes but Michael soon starts chasing after her. Can she survive his psychotic carnage or will she end up dead and buried in the ground with a red rose above her grave?

If it's a good idea for a thriller novel, let me know.

    Doesn't sound bad. You would definitely need to expand on it more.

    Another thing is why didn't he do the same to her? Was there a particular reason she stood out among all the women he normally meets and murders? And did something happen that he suddenly would turn on her like that?

    Best of luck, tell us if anything happens with your novel. (:

    If you can come up with a valid reason for her running away rather than calling the police, you can make it work.

    Also, he's apparently kind-hearted, not kind-hearted. Big difference.

    Are you sure you want her to be named Veal? At least go for a different spelling.
