From Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, her stunning first thriller! A beautiful young woman's corpse is found dumped in a garbage-strewn alley. Now laid out in the office of medical examiner Kat Novak is an unidentified body that betrays no secrets'except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty work. The police are skeptical. The mayor won't listen. One of the town's most prominent citizens, with a missing daughter of his own, is also Kat's chief suspect. As the death toll rises, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is close enough to touch her. Praise for Tess Gerritsen "[The author] has a knack for creating great characters and mysterious plots that seem straightforward but also dazzle with complexity and twists."'Associated Press "[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes."'Chicago Tribune "One of the most versatile voices in thriller fiction today."'The Providence Journal Previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered From the Paperback edition.

This did not disappoint -- fast paced, plenty of twists. Not the same characters, but served to remind me just how enjoyable the Rizzoli & Isles series was both in book form and as televised. I like this author's style, and recommend to anyone interested in crime drama.
