Probation officer Joe Trumball takes his first steps back into life after the murder of his fiancée Laurel, two years ago. He finds himself liking his blind date until his friend, police officer Howie, tells him she's killed. Knowing he's the last man that saw her alive, he does everything possible to help in the investigations. After a second and third woman, connected to him, are killed, police investigations take a turn at him as a possible suspect.
The murdered women are connected in more then one way to him: They did not only see him recently, they are strangled with things of his possesion.

The heat is on, Joe needs to find the murderer that killed three women and probably his dead fiancée as well.

An easy, short read without lots to think about, written in first person. All in all I am not very impressed and it didn't take long until I figured out who the killer is. While Joe goes into his old cases and tells us what these kids did and what they were, it just felt like the author needed to fill some more pages. In the end this is still a pretty thin Hardback.
