New York City is being terrorized by a serial killer preying on young professional ladies.
The authorities are baffled by the murders. The first murder was thought to be a case of extreme sex gone bad, but then, there was a second and a third. The politicos fearing a city-wide panic, have kept the murders under wrap desperately trying to apprehend the maniacal killer before going public.
Once hailed as ‘The Last Advocate of the Victims,’ by the local New York media, for his Sherlock Holmes style of deduction, Joey Mancuso, formerly the top homicide detective for the NYPD’s Midtown South Precinct, and his brother, Associate Pastor at St. Helen’s Church in Brooklyn, Father Dominic O’Brian, who now own — Mancuso & O’Brian Investigations, are hired as consultants for the precinct. Charged with solving these horrific murders, the brothers work out of their makeshift squad room — Captain O’Brian’s Irish Pub and Cigar Bar in the Financial District of Manhattan.
The killer, profiled as an “unprincipled psychopaths and highly narcissistic” seems to be three steps ahead of everyone. Little does Mancuso know that this killer could turn these killings into a personal affront that can threaten him and those around him.
Award winning author – Owen Parr, in his third Mancuso – O’Brian Crime Mystery series, tantalizes the reader with clues and possibilities, in this fast-paced, page turner crime mystery novel. But don’t be fooled by what you see, like Mancuso, you’ll need to observe and not just look and search beyond the obvious. Join Joey and Father O’Brian as they feverishly work out of their Irish pub to solve this case that possibly threatens the ones they love.
