The first book in Monsour's Paris Murphy series.

A terrific suspense novel! Even though you know the kiler's identity right from the beginning, Paris's struggle to catch him makes this book hard to put down.

This is part of a detective series set in St Paul MN. The heroine is a bright homicide detective named Paris Murphy. I liked this book very much and I especially liked the local setting!

An interesting read. You have to suspend your belief somewhat more than I'd like to but fast moving enough to make it worthwhile

This book was too predictable. You know the killer, you know how and why he killed and you knew what his next move is. A waste of time in my opinion.

This turned out to be quite good. It's her first book. It's a suspense book, with just a tiny bit of romance. It starts with a murdered prostitute, and gets a little more explicit than I liked, but nothing real offensive.

This is the first book by Theresa Monsour that I've read and I enjoyed it very much. Her style of writing is crisp and she develops her characters very well. I particularly like her heroine, Paris Murphy, a homicide detective with hang-ups and very human tendencies.

This appears to be the first book of what will become a continuing series with the same characters as I have 2 other books by her and they both have Paris as the main character.

In this book Paris and her partner Gabe investigate the murder of a prostitute, only to find out they may be dealing with a serial killer.

Monsour handles her story line a little differently than most mystery writers in that the reader knows who the killer is almost from the beginning. The plot develops around how the killer is able to allude the police, even though Paris fairly quickly has her suspect in mind. It seems like that would spoil the story, but it only enhances the tension. The last few chapters will have you turning the pages and staying up late to finish the book. Don't miss this one!!!

I am not sure. My mother read it and I haven't gotten around to it so I thought that someone else might enjoy it.
