A Piece of You + Giveaway




Homicide Detective Sami Rizzo is at it again! She never dreamed "America's Finest City," would be tormented by yet another serial killer, but for the third time in the last five years a depraved maniac is stalking the streets of San Diego. Based on her qualifications and prior successes dealing with multiple murders, who else would Captain Davison assign to head the investigation? Different from Sami's past experiences, this fanatic is like no other. His methods of killing defy everything profilers think they know about serial killers. As an intense investigation begins and bits and pieces of evidence emerge, no one can understand his motivation. He's merciful, yet brutal. And just to make things even more confusing, all of his victims are blood-related. Is he settling a vendetta? Did he randomly pick a name out of the phone book and begin a rampage? Or is there a deeper story? Based on very little evidence and a lot of gut instincts, Detective Rizzo pieces together a complex puzzle and narrows the field of possible suspects. She learns that the killings may connect in some way to powerful people within the judicial system and doesn't know who to trust. Ultimately, she comes face to face with the killer for a battle of brain and brawn. Can she outwit the shrewd killer, or will she be his next victim?

My Review

This is the third book in the Detective Sami Rizzo series. If you are a fan of murder/suspense, police protocol novels then you have to check this series out. While these books can be read as stand alone novels, I think that you will appreciate the working relationship between Sami and her partner, Detective Richard Osbourn. Sami and Richard are like ying and yang. They help balance each other out. However at times when Richard starts to act and talk like Sami it is entertaining.

Be warned because if you are not a fan of blood and guts then this is your warning. However this series is a lot less gory than other series I have read. In the beginning I had no clue the motive or the killer but at the story progressed I did get a clue as to who the killer was but I did not really put all of the pieces together until the end. Which the ending was a great one. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
