Product Description

Product Description

As a veteran member of the Providence police department's elite homicide squad, Detective Danny Martell has seen his fair share of dead bodies. But he’s never seen anything quite like this. Women around the city are being brutally murdered, their dead faces elaborately made up and fabric angel wings attached to their lifeless bodies. The attacks are immediately dubbed "the Angel Murders"—yet it doesn’t take long for the deadly crime wave to drag Danny into his own personal hell…

Because soon after the killings begin, Danny’s wife, Linda, abruptly disappears. And when his worst fears are realized, a grief-stricken Danny redoubles his efforts to hunt down the deranged serial killer. But is Linda just another random "angel"? Or is she the victim of a copycat killer with a vendetta against Danny?

Gritty, suspenseful, and fiendishly fascinating, this chilling whodunit will keep readers guessing right alongside Danny—and on the very edge of their seats until the final page is turned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Superficial 16 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book felt ... shallow and hollow, not real. The plot and characters were superficial and stereotype. Would not read again (as I usually do with good books).

1.0 out of 5 stars Really bad 4 May 2013
By Shaish

This book is really badly written, with under-developed characters and a wafer thin plot. I didn't care what happened to anyone in this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Angel Wings 20 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading this it seems to me that Yankee coppers spend all day eating and spouting cliches. Plot is about as riveting as an afternoon of Pepa Pig.

3.0 out of 5 stars Title 8 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a really good book but what happened to the ending? It leaves us high and dry, not knowing when or if the angel killer is ever caught. What a bad ending!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Angel Wings 5 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found there was an awful lot time spent on eating and describing food which felt to me like padding out the story instead of the detective side of the story. It isn't one I would read again.
