TITLE: BROKEN ANGELS
AUTHOR: RICHARD MONTANARI
Details: no. 3 Kevin Byrne & Jessica Balzano Mystery
It starts when the body of a woman is found next to a river in Philadelphia, strangled and mutilated. Initially it seems that Detectives Byrne and Balzano are working a single, horrific murder. But then other bodies start appearing along the river, all strangled and all staged to tell some sort of story - The hunt is on for a killer who is basing his murders and his victims on fairy-tales by Hans Christian Andersen without leaving a single clue.
This, in itself was a solid and fascinating story line, but there are several other story lines going at the same time. And when all the threads come together it really fits and works.
A good thriller, well written with interesting characters. I have to go back now and start this series with book one.
