This time the victim is Ursula Corey: a successful, attractive divorcée who’s been gunned down—not a robbery but an execution, a crime that smacks of simple, savage revenge. And along with that theoretical motive come two strong contenders for the role of perp: the dead woman’s business partner/ex-husband and her divorce lawyer/secret lover. But just as Alex and Milo think they’re zeroing in on the most likely suspect, a bizarre new clue stirs up eerie echoes of the unsolved Hennepin murder. And the discovery of yet another crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the specter of a serial killer on a mission, whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulative and cunning madness.
I love the friendship between Alex Delaware and Milo Sturgis because of the way they play off of one another. They both have a dry sense of humor and want the same thing – justice for victims.
This storyline is twisted and one I’ve never read before. The killer murders the victims, who are on the surface not related, and then leaves a meal for two at the crime scene or somewhere meaningful. The main suspect turns out to be wrong and the story goes into another direction and not until the end do we find out how the killer is.
Great story with well-defined characters and steady paced action. I highly recommend it.
