Perfect suspense from New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham! The latest book in her New York Confidential series.
Someone is murdering beautiful young women in the New York area and displaying them in mausoleums and underground tombs. The FBI is handling the case, with Special Agent Craig Frasier as lead.
Kieran Finnegan, forensic psychologist and part owner of Finnegan's, her family's pub, is consulting on the case. Craig and Kieran are a couple who've worked together on more than one occasion. On this occasion, though, Craig fears for the safety of the woman he loves. Because the killer is too close. The body of a young model is found in a catacomb under a two-hundred-year-old church, now deconsecrated and turned into a nightclub. A church directly behind Finnegan's in lower Manhattan.
As more women are murdered, their bodies discovered in underground locations in New York, it's clear that the police and the FBI are dealing with a serial killer. Craig and Kieran are desperate to track down the murderer, a man obsessed with female perfection. Obsessed enough to want to "preserve" that beauty by destroying the women who embody it...
Oh, this book was so fantastic! I really enjoyed being with these characters again! I had thought going in that this was going to star a different couple, but was pleasantly surprised that it starred Kieran and Craig again!
I've been meaning to read this book for a while. After all, I got an ARC of it, from before it came out. So I'm about a year late. But it means that I don't have to wait long to read the 3rd book, because I already have a copy, so it all works out!
This book, there's a death right away, and pretty quick confirmation that he's a serial killer, so a bit different from the diamond heist and subsequent crimes of the first book, at least, what I remember! I really enjoyed both of them investigating in their own ways-and how many not-supposed-to-be-there bodies she finds!
Who the bad guy could be, was automatically pretty limited. Well, until the tunnels came into play, but mostly, they had a set number of people, because there was also knowledge about the site. So yeah, when he was unmasked, it was so great, because while he was suspected, it wasn't serious, so that was a shock!
This book was really fantastic, and I can't wait to read more!
