Mercy by David Lindsey

Houston is shattered by a shock wave of  unbelievably vicious sex killings.  And this time the pattern is unique--way out of line with traditional violent-crime psychology.  In Detective Carmen Palma's experience, a psychopath always chooses anonymous targets.  But the Houston victims know and trust their killer:  They meet willingly in hotel rooms, even in their homes.  They don't fight when the leather cuffs are fastened to their wrists and ankles.  They don't even struggle when the first blows fall . . .Palma's first lightning instinct is that the victims expected their torture.  They were practicing masochists, apart of a secret clique that includes some of the city's most prominent women.  They helped choreograph their own punishments-every blow.  They just didn't expect to die. . .

This book is very interesting. Once you start the book, you can't put it down. The author gives you a little clues along the way, teasing you, until you just have to know who it is that is behind the killings. It all comes together at the end of the book

This is one of the best mystery books ever written. I have read it over several times. The characters are so real and interesting.

I didn't want to put this book down. It was thrilling and very different. I discovered Lindsey by accident, but I must say I am a true fan

So few people seem to have discovered Lindsay. That is too bad because he writes some great books. Mercy is not for the faint of heart as it deals with some pretty hot topics. However, the elements of police work are fantastic. After reading so many of Lindsay's books, I feel like I've lived in Houston for years.
