Bino Phillips has seen his share of crime-fighting, but nothing has prepared him for the desperate search for a serial killer stalking the streets of Dallas - a serial killer that has more than the usual thirst for blood. One woman has been found, the blood sucked from her body. She and a friend, who remains missing, were to be key witnesses in Bino's defense of a young coed dealer. Now Bino finds himself in a sudden race against death, especially when the killer gets personal and targets Bino's secretary as his next victim. Used to be you could call the Feds for help. But for some reason even they're stumped by this clever would-be Dracula.

Dept Q, Harry Hole... where are you?
In the first two books, Bino's exploits revolved around the courtroom. This time, a very sick serial killer is terrorizing Dallas and it somehow revolves around the courthouse. Two students are gruesomely murdered and a third is missing. One link is that two of the victims were defense witnesses Bino needs for his current case. This pits Bino's razor sharp cynicism and wit against the egotistical and narcissistic federal agents.
The synergy of a top rate narrator, great dialogue, Great characters, truly gutsy police work and plenty of laughter make this an easy 5 star experience.
Will read just about anything. Favourites include Tom Robbins, Umberto Eco, Michael Connelly, Chris Brookmyre, Julian Barnes, James Joyce, Tim Butcher, Barbara Kingsolver, Ettienne van Heerden, Deon Meyer and ....
This is the 3rd book in the series and I have enjoyed them all. Quirky, well read, clever. Well worth the while.
