Murders that are similar to the Jack the Ripper killings from the 1880's. Lacy comes across the first unfortunate victim bleeding all over her car. When police arrive she meets Dana Tulloch and Mark Joesbury. Dana has her walk through everything then sends Lacy to the station with Mark who Lacy gets weird vibes from and doesn't care for already. He seems to be a bit of a hard-ass Lacy is transferred from her station to Dana's station so they can keep her close since she is a witness to the first murder as well as get her advice on the JTR case similarities. Mark and Lacy have an explosive sexual attraction that leads Mark to be even more of a hard-ass on her causing her to fight her attraction to him. We find out there are sisters who were raped that might be involved in this case and potentially the murderers When one is found out to be dead that leaves only one. But Lacy has a secret that would ruin her career if it comes to light and she goes out of her way to make sure that doesn't happen. I won't say anymore about that but trust me when I say the ending of the book will make you say, " WHAT!!" and reread it to see where you might have missed some important information hidden in there.
Mark thinks Lacy is involved in this case as more than a professional way. He will stop at nothing to figure out what she is hiding.
Over all I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The only problem I have with it is that the people I wanted to get together can't see the light so to speak. It is the first in a series of books that I cannot wait to continue reading. I would rate this book a five out of five.
