Overview

When reporter/crime writer Russell Monroe finds his former lover brutally slain in an apparently ritual style, he suspects a connection to other recent murders in the county. Somehow, the case never appears on the police blotter - although Russell saw his former colleague, homicide chief Marty Parish, leaving the scene of the crime - and soon all evidence of the death disappears. Meanwhile, a string of killings continues in the same gruesome style, and Russell becomes the contact of the deranged man responsible. As Monroe gets dangerously entangled in this deadly intrigue, he must fight for his life while watching his wife fight for hers against a terminal brain tumor.

He is such a good writer, that if he had another 50 books I could read, I would buy all of them. Alas, I have read most of his books already, and I have to wait for new ones to be published! I wait for the paperback edition, because it is easier to carry. His characters are meaty and have their own voice, and the stories are complex and intelligent. He creates brand new stories and characters in each new book, and I would recommend any and all his books. Besides all this good stuff I mentioned, he writes about Southern California and that makes his stories even better!
