Overview

When attractive young women start disappearing from the luxury cruise ships of Camelot Cruise Line at an alarming rate, Viktor Viken, Camelot�s billionaire owner, coerces company lawyer Raam Commoner into doing whatever it takes to stop the seagoing serial killer without a story on the six o�clock news. After a chance but near fatal shipboard encounter, Raam � the tall, good-looking but burned-out womanizer who has been cleaning up after Viktor Viken for years � and Kayman Karl, the smart, beautiful and independent private investigator who has been hired by a distraught father to investigate the cruise line disappearance of his daughter � are compelled to join forces in the search for the motive behind the murders. Opposites attract, but all thoughts of romance are put on hold once it becomes obvious that Kayman fits the profile of previous victims and they must race to find and stop a twisted murderer before he strikes again.

COMMON ENEMY is the first in Richard David Bach�s Common Denominator Series of romantic thrillers chronicling the lives, loves and adventures of Raam Commoner and Kayman Karl. Coming soon � COMMON GROUND and COMMON PLACE.

All aboard for a luxury cruise featuring murder for revenge, murder for fame, and murder for the fun of it.

Reviewed by Lorena Sanqui for Readers' Favorite After two years in the Afghanistan desert, lawyer Raam Commoner receives a welcome home with a series of killings that his boss, Viktor Viken, wants him to solve. The murders occurred on Viktor’s prized cruise ships, but nobody has associated the events with a serial killer - not until Viktor receives a video from someone claiming all nine deaths as his work. Raam, teaming up with Private Investigator Kayman Karl, and profiler Giancarlo Cornelli, sets out to find who this serial killer could be. Will Raam be able to find out who the killer is before he strikes again? Aided by the clues that the killer himself provides, Raam will race against time to uncover the killer's identity. All that and more in Common Enemy by Richard David Bach. Despite the fact that I worked out the killer's identity, I couldn't help Raam and tell him my suspicions. Anyway, he figured it out on his own, so all is good. I loved Common Enemy, its story, the characters, and just everything about it. Richard David Bach wrote a masterpiece with Common Enemy. There was an element of romance in the book that was  just right, so as not to overpower the thriller and mystery part of the plot. I think this is only the first book of a series, and because I liked the first one I’m sure to read the next ones.
