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.

San Francisco. Newspapers. Scandal. And a series of mysteries you won't put together until the very end. Highly entertaining, highly recommended.

Amazing! I couldn't put this down. It's heart-pounding suspense with wholly original characters and setting.

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.
