An aging detective hunts a serial killer, finding love along the way. After three decades in homicide, Tim Hess hangs up his gun. But retirement doesn't sit well with the veteran detective, and a string of grisly murders in Southern California calls him back to the job. The papers are calling the killer 'The Purse Snatcher,' because of his affinity for kidnapping women with designer bags, but the playful nickname doesn't reflect the horror of the crime scenes he leaves behind. He dumps their shredded purses in the woods, surrounded by blood-soaked dirt and a few scraps of flesh. The victims' fates remain gruesome yet unknown. Hess's partner is Merci Rayborn, a second-generation cop whose intense ambition has won her no friends in the department. As they chase the madman who is terrorizing the Californian suburbs, Hess finds himself falling in love.

Merci Rayborn, T. Jefferson Parker's stubborn, principled Orange County detective, is almost alone in believing that deputy Archie Wildcraft didn't kill his beautiful young wife and then turn his service weapon on himself. The evidence against Wildcraft--now hospitalized with a bullet lodged in his head--seems overwhelming. But Merci, who's still unpopular for exposing an old police scandal that caused the death of one cop and the ruination of others (The Blue Hour), is resisting pressure from her boss and a headline-hunting D.A. to arrest Wildcraft and charge him with murder. Then the deputy, who's lost his memory and maybe his mind as a result of his injury, goes missing from his hospital room, intent on tracking down the real killers and managing to stay a step ahead of Merci. Soon, they both begin to realize that Gwen Wildcraft wasn't killed because she got in the way of an attempted hit on her husband--it was the other way around. Parker, whose skills at characterization are as well honed as his expert pacing and intricate plotting, has penned another standout that will keep readers guessing and gasping until the last dramatic page. --Jane Adams
