Profiler Sarah Armstrong knows what it’s like to be in a sticky situation. But when megawealthy businessman Edward Lucas III is found murdered along with his mistress, their bodies posed in grotesque ways, Sarah quickly senses that this will be the deadliest case of her career.
While others focus on Lucas’s estranged wife, Sarah hunts a suspect only she believes in. Yet nothing in her career prepared her for the horror of a young man who believes he has been sent from heaven to massacre innocent people.
When Sarah picks up the killer’s elusive trail, the psychopath sets his sights on all she holds dear. Filled with pulse-pounding action, Singularity features a feisty, funny, and tough heroine and a truly creepy killer, as it races along to a chilling and unexpected climax.
Lt. Sarah Armstrong balances the challenges of being the Texas Rangers' lone criminal profiler and a single mom in the riveting fiction debut from true-crime journalist Casey (A Descent into Hell). A recent widow with a young daughter, Sarah deals with her loss by vigorously investigating the ritualistic murder of a wealthy Houston businessman, Edward Travis Lucas III, and his mistress, lawyer Annmarie Knowles, at his Galveston beach house. Galveston PD, the rangers and FBI unite their efforts, but turf battles erupt as they differ on whodunit. Sarah and FBI profiler David Garrity don't believe the local police's prime suspect Lucas's unhappy wife, Priscilla was the culprit. A serial killer appears more likely, and they soon uncover similar Texas murders. Casey's solid research, smooth plotting and sensitive depiction of Sarah's relationship with her grieving daughter lift what could've been standard serial-killer fare into poignant, exciting family drama.
