This particular large print copy DOES have a dust cover jacket. Jessica and Kevin try to work together while battling their own problems, an exciting new series with a unique setting...NOT NYC and NOT LA, but Philly. These 2 detectives in Philadelphia try to solve serial murders by a psycho who leaves no clues.

New to me but known to millions, this author's the Rosary Girls has a copywriter note on its cover: "Relentlessly paced and vividly told, Rosary Girls is a smart, emotionally complex, fiercely gripping thriller. ....Takes chances, and breaks new ground.. and I found it was all true. Montanari seems to care about and understand his protagonists, and the reader cares. He knows people and the environment, based in Philadelphia, social and otherwise he writes about and the reader nods in recognition sometimes. Sadly the plot centers on a
vicious killer, hunted by veteran cop Kevin Byrne and Det.Jessica Balzano. This is a memorable read. I have since bought 3 more of his books.
