Blind Instinctby Robert W. Walker
For nearly a decade, Robert W. Walker has thrilled readers with his acclaimed Instinct series. The novels featuring FBI Medical Examiner Dr. Jessica Coran have been praised as "masterful" (Clive Cussler). Now, for the first time in hardcover, Walker presents a riveting tour de force of suspense--a thriller about the nature of evil and the rapture of death at the dawn of a new millennium...
Dr. Jessica Coran is enlisted by London's elite New Scotland Yard to spearhead the investigation of a grisly series of crucifixion murders. Only Coran, an expert in tracking and capturing serial killers, can provide authorities with the insights to capture this madman--a psychopath whose intelligence makes him the most chilling villain to appear in print since Hannibal the Cannibal.
Praise for the Jessica Coran novels:
"A bone-chilling page-turner....Every bit as exciting as the chase is Coran's rigorous examination of the evidence."-- Publishers Weekly
"Just when you think there's nothing new to be done with the serial-killer novel...genuinely spooky."-- Ed Gorman
"Chilling and unflinching...technical without being heavy-handed, and brutal without glorifying violence."-- Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
"A taut, dense thriller. An immensely entertaining novel filled with surprises, clever twists, and wonderfully drawn characters."-- Daytona Beach News-Journal

I accidently picked up one of Robert W. Walker's first books and read it..I was hooked! I enjoy his storyline, each person seems real in the minds eye. Keep up the good work and can't wait for the next addition.
Though she works for the FBI, her reputation as the world's leading forensic pathologist has Scotland Yard asking Jessica Coran to help them with a gruesome case. Even though she has a stateside case, the thought of visiting London on a working holiday pleases her no end. She hopes her boyfriend will fly in form Hawaii to join her, but that fails to happen. Still, Jessica flies to England to work with Scotland Yard on the fascinating investigation. Crucifixion may be one of the most hideous ways to die because it is slow and painful. By the time Jessica arrives, three victims have died by that torturous method. Two more deaths follow. The five victims have nothing in common except for a religious phrase inscribed in their tongues. Many people believe that the Second Coming is upon us. Jessica and her cohorts believe that a cult is hastening the event. Jessica places herself in danger trying to expose the culprits. Fans of Cornwell and Goldberg (the writer) will definitely want to read Robert W. Walker's BLIND INSTINCT. The strong heroine is a feisty, independent person who relishes falling in love with an unexpected suitor. Though obstinate and brilliant, Jessica is a likable protagonist. The mystery is cleverly handled with the audience aware from almost the onset who is causing problems. This tale will make Mr. Walker a household name as he reaches the bestseller lists.
