A stifling heat wave rolls into New York City, amplifying the already critical level of tension in the fragile concrete ecosystem. The air tastes of electricity - the negative charge of bad things to come - but everyone hopes it’s just the temperature. Then, on the morning homicide detective Alexandra “Hemi” Hemingway finds out she is pregnant, a twisted serial killer makes his debut. And the heat goes up.
Not for the faint of heart - American Woman is a relentless ride that takes you through the fractured world of a nascent killer. And you will never feel safe again.

In the process of beginning a new chapter of my life and strengthening connections with my daughter.
Okay; this is a hard one to call. It is certainly a series that shows promise; Allie Hemingway is a formidable, if not exactly a really likable protagonist. There is a lot of action and Hemi's partner Phelps is a strong supporting player.
On the other hand. Hemingway's boyfriend Daniel is an undeveloped character, Allie's family are shadows and the motivations that drive Hemingway aren't clear.
The two principal reservations I have with this book is that I found the villain too brilliant to be believable. The second one is that I found too much of the violence in this book to be more gratuitous than was necessary for a book. It actually reminded me more a movie plot; say something in the lines of something in the Hannibal Lecter series. I can't recommend this particular selection but I will keep an eye on future works with this character or by this writer.
