In Hill's latest thriller, the follow-up to If It Bleeds, hearing-impaired 28-year-old reporter Geri LaRue has no sooner arrived in town, anxious to begin her new job at the San Francisco Times, when she's blindsided by news that her roommate-to-be Leta Blackburn, also a reporter at the Times, has gone missing. Leta had been doing research on a murdered priest, found the week before in Golden Gate Park with his throat slashed, and the police suspect the two events are related. What's more, at least one co-worker at the Times thinks Geri knows more than she's letting on. Soon, Geri learns that the priest's death is just one part of a serial killer's frightening personal agenda. Picking up where Leta's research left off, Geri teams up with Malcolm Piercy, an erotomania expert and therapist, and dives headlong into the world of big city journalism, psychotic murder and public scandal. Though this whodunit suffers from too many cardboard supporting characters, Geri's voice propels the narrative ably, and occasional glimpses into the killer's mind provide some tricky hints that will keep readers guessing.

Book Description Mira Books, New York, New York, U.S.A., 2006. Soft Cover. Book Condition: New. Twenty-two minutes--that's all it takes 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 that 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 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, an 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.
