Product Description –
THE FIRST BODY IS A MYSTERY.
She’s young. She’s beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston medical examiner Cat Novak, betrays no secrets – except for a notebook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside.
THE NEXT BODY IS A WARNING.
When a second victim is discovered, Cat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the city streets: a shadowy madman without mercy or apparent motive. The police are sceptical. The mayor won’t listen. And Cat’s chief suspect is one of the city’s most prominent citizens.
THE FINAL BODY…MIGHT BE HERS.
With the death toll rising, Cat races to expose a deadly conspiracy and the brutal killer at its heart – a killer who will stalk her from the dangerous streets of the inner city to the corridors of power. Because he’s closer than she ever dreamt. And every move she makes could be her very last.
I believe this book has been called the “bridge” between the author’s romance novels and her medical crime thrillers and since I haven’t read any of her romance books but some of the medical thrillers, I’ll have to take it under advisement. What I won’t have to take under advisement is how good this story is. Not only good, but great. It had me hooked from the beginning and I hated to see it end. I also had hoped that there would be a hint of a sequel or next installment with the characters of Kat and Adam but in my investiagtions I have failed to come across any. Darn. Just when their relationship seems to have a chance of surviving,the book ends. Oh well, now that I’ve finished a medical thriller, it got me wanting more so I’ve started another one by one of my favorite authors, Patricia Cornwell and can’t wait to really get into it. If you enjoy Tess Gerritson and haven’t read Girl Missing you really should give it a try.
