MOTIVE JONATHAN KELLERMAN
Even hundreds of closed cases to his credit can’t keep LAPD police lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonising over the crimes that don’t get solved – and the victims who go without justice. Victims like Katherine Hennepin, a young woman strangled and stabbed in her home. A single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead-end – one even psychologist Alex Delaware’s expert insight can’t explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next murder case.
The discovery of a second and then a third crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the spectre of a serial killer on a mission, whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulation and cunning madness.
