Taking the FifthBook - 1987
There are many bizarre and terrible ways to die. Seattle Homicide Detective J.P. Beaumont thought he had seen them all – until he saw this body, its wounds, and the murder weapon: an elegant woman's shoe, its stiletto heel gruesomely caked with blood. The evidence is shocking and unsettling, even for a man who prowls the shadows for a living, for it suggests that savagery is not the exclusive domain of the predatory male. And the scent of a stylish killer is pulling Beaumont into a world of drugs, corruption, and murder to view close–up a cinematic dream at its most nightmarish—and lethal.
