Just when NYPD lieutenant Bernardino was ready to retire, he won the lottery. But when word of his good fortune gets out, the sharks start circling... and one of them wants to collect on an old debt.
Now, April Woo must track her friend's murderer by searching her own tightly knit family of fellow officers for motives-and a suspect. A suspect who's enraged, elusive-and who's driving April in a terrifying search for the truth...

Combining nerve-wracking suspense and wry humor, A Killing Gift, the latest installment in Leslie Glass's April Woo mystery series (after The Silent Bride), finds the intrepid NYPD detective in pursuit of a serial killer with martial arts expertise. After discovering the corpse of a recently retired colleague and nearly getting herself killed in the process, April wastes little time recovering before digging up clues with her fiance/partner, Mike Sanchez. When the body count rises, a chilling pattern emerges, and the couple realize that the victims all share a connection to a local university. Once again, Glass delivers a unique narrative filled with sharp dialogue, quirky characters and shades of oriental mysticism. Glass brings the Big Apple and its inhabitants to life as only a native New Yorker could, and Manhattanites-as well mystery aficionados-may well find Woo to be one of the most compelling heroines to grace the genre in years.
