But LAPD Detective Margaret Nolan, whose brother recently died serving overseas, is sympathetic to Sam's troubles, and can't quite see him as a killer.

Kirkus Book Review

After 10 chronicles of the crime-solving adventures of the madcap partners in Minneapolis' Monkeewrench Software, Tracy shifts dramatically to focus on a spate of killings on Los Angeles' Miracle Mile. Stella Clary is the third woman to be gutted by a murderer who's shown no interest in molesting his victims sexually. Although LAPD homicide detectives Margaret Nolan and Al Crawford are under pressure to bring in the perp, they can't even figure out how he escapes the blood-drenched crime scenes without getting noticed. And things are about to get worse. The morning after event promoter Ryan Gallagher settles an argument with his girlfriend, Pearl Club waitress Melody Traeger, by punching her out, someone breaks into her apartment and leaves two dozen red roses behind. A peace offering, she thinks, but Ryan insists they weren't from him, and a day later he's dead too, leaving Melody both traumatized and thoroughly creeped out by the black Jeep she's convinced is stalking her. Sam Easton, the Pearl Club's barback, takes Melody under his wing even though he's got problems of his own, from extensive physical and mental scarring from a car bomb he was the only GI to survive to his haunting by Ronald Doerr, who served with him in Afghanistan, to his recent breakup with his wife, Yukiko, who's about to get killed herself and make Sam a prime suspect. Detective Remy Beaudreau, who wants to buy Nolan a drink and take her home with him, doesn't believe in coincidences, and brother, is he in the wrong book. Good LA atmosphere, people worth caring about, lots of corpses, and at least one killer too many. Copyright (c) Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
