So Close the Hand of Death

It’s a hideous echo of a violent past. Across America, murders are being committed with all the twisted hallmarks of the Boston Strangler, the Zodiac Killer and Son of Sam. The media frenzy explodes and Nashville homicide lieutenant Taylor Jackson knows instantly that The Pretender is back… and he’s got helpers. As The Pretender’s disciples perpetrate their sick homages – stretching police and FBI dangerously thin – Taylor tries desperately to prepare for their inevitable showdown. And she must do it alone.

    This book got me in trouble, I listen while on my way to work and was at a part in the book that I just wanted to hear and before I knew it I was late clocking in..... Well worth the "talking to that I got!!!"

    "Interesting until the finish"

    This author kept me interested all the way through. There is another book with the herione available, and I will certainly be purchasing it. If you like Patricia Cornwell, espeially her earlier books, this book is in that style. A good listen.
