About this title

Synopsis:

Set in Houston, Texas, A Cold Mind by David Lindsey will keep you at the edge of your seat from page one. As homicide detective Stuart Haydon investigates multiple deaths of high priced call girls, he tries to determine if their deaths are linked. Are these deaths a suicide pact or are these women acquiring some sort of fatal disease associated with their line of work? I some evil maniac targeting these women in some deranged plot or is someone trying to make a statement? He considers all of these questions as he interviews neighbors and friends of the victims. Evidence brought forth during the post-mortem examinations reveals very little in the form of clues. As more women are found dead, Detective Hayden is forced to bring his work home with him. He works tirelessly to gather information, and stays in constant contact with the pathologist, Vanstraten, who is performing the autopsies on each victim. At first they are frustrated. They can find nothing to help them figure out why these girls are dying. There is no common denominator connecting the victims. Some of the women have drugs in their system, others don't. Some of the women are in their 40's, others in their 20's. Some knew each other, and yet not all of them.

From the Publisher:

"Somewhere in the sprawling city of Houston, a psychopath s stalking his victims. Each is a high-priced call girl trained and groomed for the pleasure of high-powered gentlemen. Each is found murdered, her body twisted in a climax of agony, defying medical explanation. but most chilling of all is that the killer is coldly efficient, leaving behind no clues, no motives, no evidence.

Homicide detective Stuart Haydon has seen his share of the dangerous passions that lead to murder, but he's never seen anything like this before. From its luxury condos to its rotting wharves and mean back streets, Haydon is sucked into the seedy sexual underbelly of the city...into a secret slave trade in flesh and lust...into the cold mind of a killer in love with death.

"One of the scariest books I've ever read...The plot is scary, the enterprise that sets the plot in motion is scary, and the murderer is scariest of all."--The Washington Post
