Summary:

Tim Hess is a semiretired veteran cop staring at a death sentence-his own. Detective Merci Rayborn, young enough to be his daughter, is brash, impatient, and not someone from whom Hess wants to be taking orders. He certainly isn't planning on falling in love with her... Together they must track down a psychopathic killer who's been abducting beautiful young women from the malls of Orange County. Dubbed the "Purse Snatcher" for the chilling way he brags about his shockingly distinctive crimes, he is one of T. Jefferson Parker's most original creations. "Ingenious, intricate, complicated yet credible, a real page-turner. There are leaks, leads, false leads, and an express train of an ending. Within the crackling tale, a quieter current carries an unforeseen and ill-starred love affair. A man much praised doesn't need more encomiums; T. Jefferson Parker deserves all he gets." -Los Angeles Times. "One of Parker's best-and that's a major statement considering his track record." -Chicago Tribune

    This is my second book by T. J. Parker and enjoyed it. Shall order some more for SAB. The story moved right along with some nail biting episodes, some humor and some violence. The pairing of a semi-retired ill male police officer with a young female office with advancement goals was an interesting change of pace.
