Review
After Frank Quinn left the NYPD, he opened a detective agency, Quinn and Associates. Mostly they do the usual background checks, along with tracking the occasional wandering spouse. But where Quinn and his band of former NYPD cops really excel is in running serial killers to ground. Harley Renz, the nakedly ambitious New York Police Commissioner, must deal with public outcry after a ritually disemboweled woman is found in Central Park. He needs to stop this monster before he turns into a serial killer, so he brings Quinn and team, who know their monsters, on board once again as consultants. Quinn’s crew begins by canvassing the area for witnesses and interviewing the victim’s friends and family. Nothing. Then a hotel fire leaves seven dead. Tough to find a pattern when the MO switches from knife work to arson. The violence escalates, and the bodies pile up. The latest in the always-thrilling Quinn series offers an unrelenting bloodbath in which shifting narratives present readers with a grisly chess match between Quinn and the killer. Lutz is a master of the serial-killer genre, and he delivers once again. -- Lukowsky, Wes (Reviewed 11-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 112, number 5)
