Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A brutal madman sprays bullets into a crowd of children leaving a San Francisco church. Miraculously-or was it intentionally?-only one person dies. Then an elderly black woman is hung. Police homicide inspector Lindsay Boxer senses a connection and together with medical examiner Claire, assistant D. A. Jill, and Chronicle reporter Cindy, finds a link that sends a chill through the entire nation. This killer's motives are unspeakable.

A Main Selection of The Literary Guild®, of Book-of-the-Month Club®, of Doubleday Book Club®, and of The Mystery Guild®

Synopsis:

Lindsay, a homicide inspector in the city's police department... Claire, a medical examiner...Jill, an assistant D.A...and Cindy, a reporter on the crime desk of the San Francisco Chronicle, now look for a criminal who has sprayed bullets into a crowd of choir boys and girls leaving a San Francisco church. Miraculously — or was it the intention of the shooter? — only one child dies. Then the killer strikes again, leaving his mystifying calling card — and the body of an elderly woman. The unorthodox allegiances of Lindsay and her friends lead them close to their prey. But nothing can prepare them for the twisted logic behind his choice of victims.
