    John Lutz provides a strong twisting investigative serial killer

    Millie Graff comes home only to find a man inside. This psychopath tortured her for hours before killing her. New York City Police Commissioner Harley Renz takes Frank Quinn of Quinn and Associates to the crime scene. When Quinn sees the victim he becomes irate as he knows her. When Millie was eight she was trapped inside a car about to explode, but Quinn rescued her. Both the Commissioner and Quinn believe a serial killer has just started his gruesome obsession.

    After three more murders with the same M.O. the media dubs the serial killer the Skinner because he peels off layers of epidermis from his victims while they are alive. The females have a male's name written in the bathroom. A good investigation discovers that the names match males who belong to an S&M club that closed years ago. That lead turns into a red herring when Quinn learns the victims testified against the men they thought raped them. DNA proved none were guilty and all were released from prison. The Skinner was accused of rape and intends to kill his accuser; his previous homicides are diabolically planned to hide a tree in the forest. Quinn learns the Skinner works alone except for one murder.

    John Lutz provides a strong twisting investigative serial killer starring a brilliant twister predator and a determined hero trying to end the perpetrator's reign of terror. The villain tosses red herrings at his antagonist (and readers), which adds to the suspense. Fans anticipate a showdown between the evil Skinner who knows right from wrong yet acts as an evil demon who doe not care about collateral damage Quinn who has personalized the chase as an avenging angel.

    Next installment in the Frank Quinn series!

    Police Commissioner Harley Renz has a soft spot for Millie Graff. Now in her early twenties, having survived a tragic ordeal as a young child, she now lies dead in a pool of blood as he furiously gazes upon the unspeakable damage done to her. Renz vows, this crime will not pass unpunished if he has anything to say about it. A call, made to the one person that has had a stake in the life Millie has lead thus far will see to it. Frank Quinn, retired NYPD police captain, now civilian, runs his own Agency, the Q & A. He is the one for the job. He is the best. Quinn and Renz have a personal history that goes way back. Can Frank's perfect record and careful plodding find the killer? On the surface there are very little clues, no traces left behind. Why would someone do this? Quinn's team of retired detectives, Pearl (who is a little more than just a detective, here), Fedderman, Vitali and Mishkin are out to solve this case no matter what, this is personal. Jerry Lido has his own reasons, he wants in too. He has talent that the team needs, his past also shadowed by Millie Graff. Another call, another victim discovered in the same unforgiving state, is this a coincidence? After three victims the team knows, there is a serial killer in their midst. What is the connection between all these women? How many more has the perpetrator targeted, and can Quinn et al find the thread before more bodies are discovered. Events from the past link to the present, it will take everything at hand to solve this one. Suspense at every turn, false accusations, grievous actions, with a bit of offside romance, and the added bonus of a pithy mother, John Lutz wraps us around this story and then ties us up, literally.

    Great Thriller! I'm going to be reading more of Lutz's books.

    Frank Quinn is an ex New York police officer. He is a private investigator and along with other PI’s, is on the case of The Skinner. This serial killer tortures, violates, and skins his victims. Frank is called in to look at a victim and realizes that he knows her from years prior. Then a victim is found that was tortured and such but manages to escape. As Frank and the group try to hunt him down, they have to find how the victims are linked together, and catch him before he kills anyone else.

    This was my first John Lutz book. I have to say that I was fairly impressed. Frank was a great character and I was kept on my toes hoping they would find the killer. The killer, seriously sick and twisted, I loved it! I could wait to see what was going to happen next. Just so you know, some scenes are very graphic. It didn’t bother me but I’m sure someone else might not.

    I really liked this book and plan on reading other books by John Lutz. This is a great thriller that you won’t be able to put down.

    I received this book for free from the Library Thing Early Reviewer program in exchange for an honest review.

    Great series

    Quinn is a phenomenal character, as are all the supporting characters in this series. All the books in this series are great but this is my favorite so far. It has a great storyline that moves so fast w/ many twists & turns that keep you on the edge of your seat. The MO & signature of this serial killer is so sick & twisted which makes it a fascinating psychological thriller... w/ just the right amount of mystery, humor & a hint of romance - all the makings of a 5 star book!
