Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Thrilled to spend the final hours of her spring break in the VIP room of an elite Manhattan club, fresh-faced Indiana college student Chelsea Hart remains behind when her girlfriends call it a night. The next morning, joggers find her body in East River Park, her blond hair brutally hacked off.

NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher believes the group of privileged men last seen plying Chelsea with free-flowing alcohol most likely includes a murderer. But after building a tight case against a young hedge-fund manager, Ellie has her doubts, because Chelsea's slaying is eerily similar to three other murders from nearly a decade ago. Continuing the investigation long after the department brass is satisfied with their case, hard-headed Ellie plunges into a late-night party world of conspicuous wealth and hedonistic consumption to catch the real killer--unaware that a psychopath is watching her every move...and eager to kill again.

Review by Library Journal (2008-07-01)

New York City rookie police detective Ellie Hatcher, first introduced in Dead Connection, is out on her morning run when she discovers the corpse of a teenage girl who's been strangled, stabbed, and shorn of her blond hair. The 19-year-old had been visiting the Big Apple with friends and hitting all the clubs while on break from college. Her murder creates a whirlwind of bad publicity for the city, but the NYPD breaks the case very quickly--or have they? Turns out there are weird similarities to some cold cases that Hatcher's deceased partner had been checking out, and she is unconvinced they have the right peep.

When another young woman is killed in a similar fashion, even the hunky district attorney has to admit the case has problems. Hatcher, meanwhile, is getting an uneasy feeling that somehow it's personal. Lots of suspense and plot twists galore keep the pages turning, but the story lines about Hatcher, her boyfriend, her brother, and her partner deserve the credit for making this novel a winner. Highly recommended for all public libraries.

Review by Library Journal (2009-02-15)

Three Indiana University co-eds find New York City's nightlife horrifically uninviting in this solid, engaging follow-up to Dead Connection (2007) featuring Det. Ellie Hatcher and her partner, J.J. Rogan. Initially teased in all directions, the team goes on doggedly to resolve the crimes. Actress/narrator Eliza Foss (Goodnight, Irene) reads Burke's well-defined characters capably. Recommended.

Review by Library Journal (2008-05-15)

Never mind the case she's carefully built against a young hedge fund manager. NYPD detective Ellie Hatcher wonders whether a serial killer who chops off his victims' hair is actually responsible for the latest murder. With a national tour.
