From the back cover:
A killer is on the loose, blurring the line between fact and fiction. His prey--writers of bestseelling crime novels--are unaware that they have scripted their own murders, for this diabolical killer reenacts the most chilling scenes in his victims' books. The desperate hunt to uncover his identity becomes a matter of life and death for one woman..
Professor Fiona Cameron is an academic psychologist who uses computer technology to help police forces track serial offenders. Fiona is working a case in Spain when her lover, thriller writer Kit Martin, tells her a fellow crime novelist has been killed. It's not her case, but Fiona can't help taking an interest. And it isn't long before the killer strikes again..And again...

Now Fiona finds herself caught in a race against time, culminating in a tense confrontation that can have only one outcome...

Val McDermid is probably the best British mystery writer
around (other than P.D. James, that is). Nothing can beat
her Place of Execution but this one comes close!

McDermid is a good writer, but this one is a bit gory for my tastes.

Aserial killer is targeting authors of serial killer books, murdering them in the same was as the character in their book.
