Overview

Where is the line between love and obsession?

The body of a San Francisco priest is discovered in Golden Gate Park, and the killer remains at large.

Leta Blackburn, award-winning journalist for the San Francisco Times, would be covering the sensational story - and investigating the forensics report that showed the priest was engaged in sexual activities at the time of his murder - but she is missing. The police suspect the two events -- her disappearance and the priest's murder -- are related.

Enter 28-year-old, hearing-impaired reporter Geri LaRue, who was to be Leta's roommate and coworker. When a ruthless colleague suggests Geri knows more than she'll admit, Geri turns to prominent psychiatrist Malcolm Piercy for help. All of Leta's notes point to the rarest and most deadly of serial killers: a woman.

Malcolm Piercy is the only one who understands what goes on inside the twisted mind of a predator like the one the papers are calling The Razor Killer, an erotomaniac who believes her victims are in love with her. Malc has reasons of his own for keeping his theory a secret, but he agrees to help Geri. Neither of them knows that the killer is watching, writing one more caption in her head - one more cutline - where the photograph is gruesome, and the bottom line is death.

Despite their mutual attraction and her own insecurities, Geri teams up with Malc and dives headlong into the world of big city journalism, psychotic murder, and public scandal.

“Geri's voice propels the narrative ably, and occasional glimpses into the killer's mind provide some tricky hints that will keep readers guessing.”

    Gripping.
    I started this book 4 days ago, didn't want to put it down (had to for work) and just finished it. I honestly think it is one of best contemporary mysteries I have ever read. The author is an absolute master. Highly impressed an highly recommended!

    Wow. I truly could not put this down. I have rarely witnessed so many story lines coming together so perfectly. Very fast-paced, quite different from most of what I read, and very satisfying

    The Body of San Francisco Father David McCaffrey is found slashed to death in Golden Gate Park. Because the victim is a priest, a media feeding frenzy explodes as the police investigate the homicide. When the forensic report confirmed Father David had sex just before dying, the media turns euphoric as they now have sensational cutlines starring the Father and ¿The Razor Killer¿. Among those reporting on the murder is Times journalist Leta Blackburn, but she vanished soon after Father David died.--------------------- Reporter Geri LaRue arrives in San Francisco expecting to meet her friend¿s sister Leta at the airport, only to learn the award winning journalist has disappeared without a trace. Geri reviews Leta¿s file on the case, which leads her to therapist Malcolm Piercy, who believes the culprit gets off sexually by murdering beloved mates sort of like a black widow. As they work together and are attracted to one another, the killer observes Malc and Geri with plans of a horrific CUTLINE involving a female reporter dying after a sexual encounter.--------------- The latest Bonnie Hearn Hill journalistic investigative tale (see IF IT BLEEDS) is a terrific tense thriller as readers ironically know how much danger Geri is in while the reporter is clueless in spite of her finding evidence pointing towards the killer. Geri is a dedicated solid reporter who knows that Malc is hiding something from her Malc feels guilty but has doubts about revealing his theory even OFF THE RECORD (next LaRue installment). Fans of suspense cat and mouse thrillers with a romantic subplot will enjoy the exciting CUTLINE.--------------- Harriet Klausner

    Bonnie Hearn Hill is a master storyteller, and Geri LaRue is one

    Bonnie Hearn Hill is a master storyteller, and Geri LaRue is one of her best characters. Geri is a hearing impaired journalist who arrives in San Francisco to find that her new roommate is missing. She begins her own investigation to find out just what happened, and this page-turner takes off from there, with plenty of twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the end. A+++

    Very Disappointed.

    Based on the reviews written, I was anxious to read this book. But I was truly disappointed. I felt the book dragged on and had a hard time finishing it.
