A Julia Gooden Mystery
Julia is back! Crime writer Julia Gooden has finished her book on her brother’s abduction and murder when he was a child. And she has helped put his killer behind bars. It’s a good story, but her editor wants more emotion and Julia isn’t sure she wants to do that.
She’s not letting that get in the way of investigating other crimes. Someone is abducting women joggers and leaving them dead in empty churches with cryptic drawings in their hands. And all wearing the same dress. The exact dress Julia wore at a police function with her boyfriend Ray Navarro once.
As Julia digs into the case she gets a call from the killer himself. He wants to be famous and he wants her to make him famous by writing his story. He’ll even give her little clues to the next murder. As the case evolves Julia and the police come to understand that this one is personal. That Julia is the intended last victim. But why? And who is this person?
This is one of my favorite series. Julia is no one’s victim and Ray has no intentions of her being one.
There were some really good new characters in this one and a lot of misdirection which had me over thinking everyone.
Well Done! A big thank you to Kensington and the author for a copy.
