A young woman who disappeared into the black night; a retired school teacher stabbed to death in broad daylight and two women butchered in a beauty parlour. Three murder cases, linked only by a perplexing lack of motive.
But then LAPD detective Milo Sturgis and psychologist Alex Delaware are called to the scene of a bizarre "crime". A stolen car has been anonymously returned to its owner, undamaged and unblemished - except for a tiny, solitary bloodstain. This minuscule clue is enough to set the pair on a hunt for a multiple killer, who proves to be a fleeting shape-shifter, defying identification. To unmask him, Alex and Milo will have to confront the true face of murderous compulsion...
I think this might have been good book, along the same lines as the previous Jonathan Kellerman novels. Unfortunately my download went silent about half way through. Audio books are great, but only if i-tunes can get the downloads right or at least respond promptly to reported problems!
