Lawrence Sander's Deadly Sins series is excellent. An oldie but a goodie. I highly recommend the series to anyone who loves a good Who dunnit thriller. These books are hard to put down once you start.

A great series of books! A bit of nostalgia reading again.

Reread this book after many years -- Sanders is still one of my favorite writers -- especially the Sin Series. He had certain sentences that are pure poetry, and his characterizations of people and his descriptions of the mundane (the making of a sandwich) are spectacular. A lovely book with a determined, decent, but prideful New York City Police Captain up against an increasingly scary multiple killer. Written in the days prior to personal computers and cell phones -- makes you amazed how they solved crimes.

One of Laurence Sander's finest. While a killer is roaming the city, Edward X Delaney's wife is dying of a mystery disease. Must read for those who enjoy a good mystery.

Sanders at his best! This is the novel that launched Sanders' career. Meet Captain Delaney, you will want to read all the Delaney series.

One of my all-time favorite serial killer suspense novels. Described as the "ultimate psychosexual thriller", it has all the elements to keep you up all night -- truly impossible to put down.

Wow, I read this book about 20 years ago and remembered it as being really good. Just reread it and the story is still good but you can see how much things have changed in the past 33 years. You tend to forget how people spoke or treated other people. The medical world has changed significantly and law enforcement. I found myself shaking my head while reading but still enjoyed the book. For those who think that things have gotten worse and remember the "good old days" read this book, then you will have to admit that somethings have improved.

the book cover is very worn but you won't care because this book is SO GOOD! BC has tear but the cover is very attached--don't you love books with that "I've been so loved" feel?
