Deserving of Death Publisher's Summary

One might say that CJ Washburn is obsessed with Stella Summers. After all, common sense all but takes flight when she goes missing for a time. How could he not think to check his email or voice mail or not find the note she had left in his apartment? He runs to the scene of a body dump in fear that it is her, possibly the third victim in what appears to be turning into a serial killing rampage. "And this guy calls himself a private investigator?" A private investigator he is, and a good one at that. However, women's bodies keep turning up and by the fourth victim he becomes a person of interest; by the fifth, the prime suspect and the subject of a manhunt from the Idaho panhandle to Southern Arizona. Bodies continue to drop around him until his deepest fear is pushed upon him and his investigative skills are challenged at the highest level. In a message from the killer he learns that the next victim will be one of the women in his life; his daughter, his girlfriend, his attorney or even his ex-wife. Who is the next target of this deranged killer?

    CJ and Stella are to be married in eight days. Yes, finally, they are doing the deed. They've been declining new, involved cases (Stella is now a licensed P.I.) in preparation for the honeymoon to New Zealand, but the call from Parker DuPont in St. Petersburg, Florida has them on a private jet and then settled into a luxury stateroom aboard the French super yacht, Angel of Paradise. They have their own steward who calls them monsieur and mademoiselle. Their client, and yacht owner, billionaire Édouard Philippe Monnier, is paying three times the going rate.
