TITLE: THE SKIN GODS
AUTHOR: RICHARD MONTANARI
Details: no. 2 Kevin Byrne & Jessica Balzano mystery
The case begins when somebody hands in a video of Psycho to the police. The shower scene in the movie has been replaced with real footage of a similar murder. The tape gives no clues as to the who or why, and soon a second tape turns up. A different movie, but again a real murder taped over the fictional one. As more tapes and more murders turn up, clues are few and far between, and with the murderer apparently heading for a big finale, Kevin and Jessica are up against it as the case is about to turn personal.
I'm liking this series, the mysteries are good and original, the characters interesting and multi-dimensional, and the thrills are fascinating.
