Black & Blue by James Patterson

Detective Harriet Blue is chasing down a violent killer on a university campus in a terrifying case that's far more sinister than she ever imagined.

Harriet Blue, the most single-minded detective since Lindsay Boxer, won't rest until she stops a savage killer targeting female university students. But new clues point to a more chilling predator . . . a violent criminal far worse than she expected.

booklover- More than 1 year ago
Detective Harriet Blue meets Det. Tate (Tox) Barnes at the scene of a crime. A woman is found murdered on a river bank, apparently another victim of the Georges River Killer. She's been trying to get a seat on the task force, but so far the other cops are stonewalling her. Barnes tells her the victim is not a part of this killing spree. He is arrogant, but a good cop. However, getting involved with him means her whole career will be stalled. Barnes has a juvenile past. So far the stories are varied ... he and a bunch of other little boys (ages 7 or 8) killed a woman and her young son .... the were beaten and then killed or maybe they were both stabbed to death ..or any number of other stories. Bottom line is that all the cops hate him and want nothing to do with him. And Blue doesn't want to be tarnished with the same brush. She and her brother grew up in the system, so she knows how it feels to not be accepted, to not fit in. Meanwhile, another team of detectives are searching for two older people who have been sailing down the coast, but it seems they've disappeared. The woman is severely ill, in need of medical care, but she has not picked up her medications. How are these cases connected? Can Blue and Barnes connect the dots before more bodies fall? This is a novella (under 200 pages) and first in a short series featuring these two detectives. The action is fast-paced with a few surprises along the way. There is a major twist at the end that I never saw coming. I look forward to reading Never, Never, next in this series.

This is just a ploy to snag reader to purchase next book! Authors should alert reader in advance that there will be a sequal
