9781416588856: Blue Mercy

Illona Haus announces her arrival as a bold voice in suspense with a gritty, edge-of-your-seat thriller. One woman's quest to bring a vicious killer to justice is about to lead her through the dark corners of obsession -- and test her capacity for mercy.

It's more than revenge.

Ravaged by guilt, Detective Kay Delaney is reeling from an attack that resulted in her partner's death. Her only consolation is that serial killer Bernard Eales, who shot her partner, sits in Maryland's State Penitentiary awaiting what's expected to be a sure conviction. But when the prosecution's star witness turns up dead -- and the body bears the same gruesome marks found on Eales's victims -- Kay wonders whether the right man is about to stand trial.

It's the fight of her life.

Partnered with her former lover, Danny Finnerty, Kay must confront the man who haunts her dreams -- even if it means proving him innocent of three shocking crimes. As the body count rises, Kay embarks on a dark journey that will test her shattered courage, pit her against an unseen evil, and challenge her to unlock a killer's chilling obsession...before it's too late.

About the Author:

Illona Haus lives in Ontario, Canada, where she is at work on her next suspense novel featuring Detective Kay Delaney.

From Publishers Weekly:

In Haus's chilling first novel, a psychological thriller, Baltimore police detective Kay Delaney has almost put her life back together after her partner's death a year earlier—thanks to serial killer Bernard Eales being locked behind bars and awaiting trial. But then a fresh murder opens old wounds, setting in motion a grisly series of events that reunites Delaney with fellow detective and former lover Danny Finnerty, casts doubt on Eales's guilt and tests Delaney's courage and will to live. The latest murder copies Eales's signature method of operation, and as more bodies are found, frustration and fear grip Delaney and Finnerty—even after they identify the killer. The elaborate plot gets off to a slow start, but the pace picks up as initially unlikable characters gain depth. Despite a certain predictability in her storytelling (past events routinely get recounted in the midst of current scenes), the author's impressive ability to get inside the heads of multiple characters (particularly the killer's) without betraying plot twists, and her refusal to shy away from morbid detail, will keep readers enthralled. Agent, Meg Ruley at the Jane Rotrosen Agency. (May)
