In The Headline Murders—David Rees’s first novel—you will meet Clifford Reavis: tall, skinny, thick glasses, clumsy, hearing aid in each ear, can’t fight, and can’t shoot straight. But a man with a national reputation for putting facts together to reach the conclusions he seeks.

While investigating another murder, Reavis concludes that there is a man somewhere in Pittsburgh who stalks, then rapes and murders one type of woman—beautiful, in her thirties, and well on her way towards the summit of her profession.

In the first chapter the reader meets not only the murderer’s next victim, but also the killer whose needs are so strong that he can barely hold himself back from ending her life right now—afterhaving his grotesque way with her. He can’t let himself though. He needs one more piece to make his perfect puzzle. His next victim’s name: Marsha LeGrange, successful young litigator. His: John Lee Simpson, highly educated, and rich beyond reason.

Clifford Reavis must learn whom Marsha is and the alias Simpson is using in Pittsburgh before he can hope to save her. Decades ago, he moved too late to save his wife’s and unborn child’s lives from the man who killed them. Those memories haunt him as—again—he must speed to save another woman whom Death has already raised his hand over.

Really good story you don't want to put down. All the better for folks who live in felt like you were right there.

One of the best debut novels I've ever read. Interesting setting, unique characters and a beautifully written story that manages to be compelling and unpredictable from beginning to end. Brilliant stuff.
