This was a pretty good "escape" murder/mystery. Revolves around a young female newspaper reporter and her move to San Francisco. Her acquaintences keep getting murdered or disappearing. Worth reading to take your mind off day to day stuff.

This book is the second in a series about reporters I have not read any of the others. I found the story good and suspenseful right up to the end. Although i had a couple of suspects in mind for the culprit i was a little off. I am not sure what the problem is but could not give it a higher rating than 3 stars.

This is the second in a three book "series" of sorts. One character is in all 3 books ... that's it. These books (all three of them) were so unimpressive I had to go back and read the comments about the book to even remember the stories. I did enjoy reading them at the time. It just seemed like they took forever to get through. I guess Ken Follet spoiled me with his "Fall of Giants and "Pillars of the Earth" his writing is unstoppable and easy to read even though these are 900 plus page books. Maybe it's not fair to compare Bonnie Hearn Hill to Ken Follet, but that just happened to be what I read after her. I really enjoyed this book set in San Francisco, "Cutline" it was my favorite of the 3 books in the series. The last one "Off the Record" I don't think I finished it I was so excited to start Pillars after reading "Fall of Giants"

Suspense novel about a hearing-impaired reporter who finds herself in the middle of the hunt for a serial killer.

Yes, the hearing-impaired part is integral both to the plot and to the protagonist's personality. Hill had me fooled to the end with her red-herring suspect(s), and I bit hard on the wrong one. She does lose points, though, for pretty well ignoring any law-enforcement activity on the murders. One finds it difficult to believe the only attention being paid to a serial slasher would be coming from the media.

This is the second entry in a series but stands well on its own.

Twenty two minutes - that's all it took for reporter Geri LaRue to realize her friend, award-winning journalist Leta Blackburn, is missing, Leta would have been covering the sensational story - and investigating the forensics report tha showed the priest was engaged in sexual activities at the time of his murder. With a ruthless colleague suggesting Geri knows more than she'll admit, she turns to a prominent shrink for help, taking with her a folder full of notes that points to the rarest of and most deadly of killers: a woman.
Therapist Malcolm Piercy is the only one who understands what goes on inside the twisted mind of the predator the papers are calling The Razor Killer, and erotomaniac who believes her victims are in love with her. Malc has reasons of his own for keeping his theory a secret, but agrees to help in Geri's search, not knowing that the killer is watching, in her mind writing one more newspaper caption - one more cutline - where the photograph is gruesome and the bottom line is death.
