[Book Review] LAST KNOWN VICTIM by Erica Spindler


Beth reviews LAST KNOWN VICTIM by Erica Spindler (Mira Books, 2007)

Hurricane Katrina has come and gone, but New Orleans has something new to fear—and it has nothing to do with water. It’s a serial killer. "The Handyman" kills women and keeps their right hands as souvenirs. After Katrina hits, his work is discovered in one of the massive refrigerator graveyards, with six hands found inside of a refrigerator's freezer compartment.

The evidence is lost to time and the elements, and the case hits a dead-end. That is, until a body is discovered in City Park. The female victim is missing her right hand. But what unnerves Captain Patti O’Shay the most is that her dead husband’s police shield is found along with the body. Could his death also be the work of the Handyman?

Patti O’Shay abandons her way of life—obeying the rules and the chain of command–to search for her husband’s killer. The Handyman stalks her as she stalks him. But who will make the mistake that brings the truth out into the open?
