The Blue Hour Publisher's Summary

Tim Hess is a semiretired veteran cop staring at a death sentence - his own. Detective Merci Rayborn, young enough to be his daughter, is brash, impatient, and not someone from whom Hess wants to be taking orders. He certainly isn't planning on falling in love with her....
Together, they must track down a psychopathic killer who's been abducting beautiful young women from the malls of Orange County. Dubbed the "Purse Snatcher" for the chilling way he brags about his shockingly distinctive crimes, he is one of T. Jefferson Parker's most original creations.

    Life seems to explode when a young prostitute is found brutally murdered and Merci's boyfriend emerges as the primary suspect. As the lead investigator on the case, she must do the unthinkable - expose and arrest her lover. Sifting through the clues with a growing sense of panic and outrage in her gut, Merci has to work hard to balance where the truth is leading her against where her heart is telling her to go.
