Plagued by a series of frightening murders in San Francisco, Homicide Inspector Clemson Yao enlists the help of Angie Strachan, a realtor who tried?and failed?to become the city’s first female homicide inspector. Facing off against a ghoulish serial killer who whimsically refers to his grotesque murders as ?messies,” Clem and Angie slowly unravel the murderer’s clues, but their quarry is always one step ahead of them, and even an FBI profiler can't help them pin down the twisted mind behind the crimes. Gripped by a macabre obsession for a decade, the killer has evolved into a grandmaster of slow, anguished death, roaming the globe to catalog the most despicable methods of execution and keeping his research in dozens of leather-bound notebooks. It's a desperate race against time, for his next victims are already picked out, and it seems that no one can stop him.

About the Author:

Thomas White has worked in fields as diverse as intelligence?with stints in North Africa and the Middle East?and anti-terrorist technology.

From Publishers Weekly:

Winning lead characters and smooth prose more than offset the standard thriller plot, a cat-and-mouse duel between a San Francisco police inspector and a sadistic serial killer, in White's promising debut. Insp. Clemson Yao of the SFPD pursues a killer responsible for such gruesome murders as that of a 32-year-old Chevron gas station manager, whose body is found torn in half at the waist by a system of counter weights in the Salinas Valley. One cop observes that the MO resembles the way some criminals were executed in 18th-century India. Yao is aided in his quest by Angie Strackan, an ex-cop turned realtor, who stumbles on another instance of the killer's handiwork. The inspector comes to believe that the main suspect, who's identified fairly early on, is increasing the pace of his butchery because he's terminally ill. Yao and company have enough quirks and humanity to make the prospect of a series a welcome one. (Aug.)
