No Regrets

Pat Warren, Author Grand Central Publishing $6.5 (384p) ISBN 978-0-446-60387-4
Ben Whalen, who looks like a younger Harrison Ford, and Maggie Spencer, who looks like ""Michelle Pfeiffer at her most vulnerable,"" meet at her father's funeral. Like other heroes of his kind, Ben is an ex-cop who has the requisite battle scars, facial and emotional: several years earlier, someone raped and killed his pregnant wife. Now, he is an insurance investigator sent to Michigan's Upper Peninsula to find out if Maggie's father's death was accidental. Someone, it appears, is out to kill the now middle-aged members of a group of college boys once called the Sexy Six. As Ben and Maggie fall in love, they search for the killer. As usual, the villain is a psychiatrically challenged serial killer who lurks in the shadows spying on the hero and heroine and has a series of whacked-out, italicized monologues. Ben's scars, and the killer's, are supposed to add depth and interest to their characters, but most readers will find them tiresomely familiar. (Oct.)
