Acclaimed Edgar Award winning author introduces Caitlin Hendrix, a detective following in the brilliant and damaged footsteps of her father. Both are chasing after a terrifying serial killer, modeled after the real life Zodiac murderer. Set in the San Francisco Bay area, this story is not for the faint hearted as it is (almost gratuitously) violent. But it is well crafted, with puzzles for the reader to solve along with Caitlin, and Caitlin is a heroine to follow. A love interest feels right, too.
