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!!!
