The child psychologist, Alex Delaware, has starred in most of Kellerman’s thrillers until he introduced Petra Connor in his last book. She’s great. With sidekick Isaac Gomez they race against time to solve and prevent a string of possibly connected murders. With excellent character building, a good sense of place (Hollywood) and mounting tension, he’s a great read.
Detective Petra Connor is working Hollywood Homicide solo. She’s struggling with a baffling drive-past murder when Isaac Gomez, a young research prodigy, tells her he’s found something she might want to take a look at. His theory that there’s a connection between six unsolved murders committed in the LAPD area over the past six years, all at around midnight on June 28, seems fanciful at first - but soon the links become clearer. Something evil has managed to conceal itself between the dry pages of the files: a series of killings so meticulously constructed that the mind behind them would have remained invisible without Isaac’s sharp probing. And June 28 is just a month away – will Petra be able to stop the murderer from striking again?
