Knave of Hearts Author:Dell Shannon "He raped women he wouldn't have to rape. And then kills them ....even though they'd never say a word. First it was six, nine months between murders....but only two between Mary Ellen and Celestine. And not it's been seventeen days since Pauline. We've got to get him before he does it again!" — What kind of man would have raped thse particula... more »r women?, Mendoza wondered. Could he find a pattern in the women, or was the killer so typical of all men that the identity of the victims didn't offer a clue? "Can any man say there hasn't been a time when he had the impulse to violence with a woman? To let her know he's a male creature....or to repay her for being female? Tell the truth!"
"Dell Shannon regards this as the best of her books, I agree."--James Sandoe-- N.Y. Herald Tribune Books« less
