Overview

A maniac is terrorizing Baltimore. “The Wishing Well Killer” is depositing his victims like they were the kitchen trash…stuffing their bodies in plastic garbage bags and throwing them down abandoned wells in the Maryland countryside. For veteran homicide detective Phil Jenkins and FBI agent Megan McKenna of BAAT, the Baltimore Aggravated Assault Task Force, the net they first cast to try and catch the killer with seems to have only hauled in a dead end. An insidious, under-the-table scam in the Maryland State foster care system involving unscrupulous lawyers. But when the madman they are chasing surprisingly surfaces in the middle of it all, Megan McKenna realizes that they know each other—and still have some deadly, unfinished business between them. Megan calls FBI profiler, and former lover, agent Reese Ditrapano in on the case to try to get inside the warped mind of the killer before another victim goes down a well. But Reese’s old feelings for Megan, and Phil Jenkins’ new ones, create friction in the investigation…the perfect diversion needed for the lunatic killer who’s finally found the perfect well. For Megan McKenna.

    The Well Meaning Killer

    is an excellant effort for a first time published author! Along the lines of J.D. Robb and other cop/thriller books - great action and suspense! I hope Miranda writes another book - perhaps the story alluded to in this one - to further develop the character. For anyone who has ever lived in Baltimore/DC, it will be like a trip home with recognizable places. Good job - great writing and a good read!

    Good Plot

    Good plot, enjoyed the book.

    Main character is tough, likeable FBI lady hunting a killer who escaped her a year ago and caused a breakdown.

    Would have rated higher but there's some strange, stilted dialogue, such as secretary saying "I must get back to my duties." Who talks like that! :)
