A cold-blooded serial killer is on the loose...
Two L.A.P.D. homicide detectives, Ryan Magee and his beautiful redhead partner Syd Curtis (who are also secret lovers) are called to a murder scene in a car park at the back of a Hollywood nightclub. The scene is gruesome, bloody, the victim has been mutilated. Initial investigations indicate that the killer is probably a woman. In fact the victim has been seen in the company of a hot, blonde, green-eyed woman in a sexy red dress that night. She is hence appropriately dubbed 'The Lady in Red'.
From the beginning the killer's identity is known...she's Alice Waterman. She's not killing at random and she's killing for a reason. She has a list of men she needs to punish for something that happened eleven years earlier.
As the body count rises, Ryan and Syd realise that in order to trace the killer, they need to find a link between the victims, but this does not prove easy.
A 47 million dollar lottery winning ticket also plays a central role in this thriller. A ticket that everybody wants and that can change the lives of many people.
With the exception of one character, who I really hated, I really loved all the others, especially Ryan and Syd, the detectives. As well as hiding their relationship from everyone, they also keep secrets from each other. Secrets regarding their past lives. I even ended up liking The Lady in Red.
While the story is slightly predictable, this did nothing to mar the general plot and I really enjoyed myself reading it through to the surprise ending which I also liked.
If you feel disgusted by detailed sex and rape scenes, if you don't like bloody, gruesome scenes, then this book is not for you. To the others all I can say is grab this book and read it. You will not be disappointed.
It's an easy read with a great story which is easy to follow (a blessing if like me you don't have much time to read)
if you like thrillers and/or cop procedural books in a similar vein to Micheal Connelly then I would highly recommend this
I'm off to buy the author's other books
Yes this book is no literary classic and I would think that most people who buy it are not looking for that kind of book anyway. What this book is, is a thrilling, entertaining and a roller coaster of a novel and I for one hope the author brings Ryan and Syd back.
