Pascoe and Danziel are trying to catch a serial killer, who stnragnels young girls. Only there are a couple of exceptions. The plot is good and believable. The conclusion, although not very surprising, is satisfying. As usual, Hill's strength is in giving the secondary characters opportunities to develop throughout the series. THey are not just props for the two detectives to excahnge clever lines, and this is what makes the book more than a simple mystery. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition
