American Woman

Robert Pobi. Amazon/Thomas & Mercer, $14.95 trade paper (382p) ISBN 978-1-47781-821-3
Cold-blooded, sadistic serial killings plague New York City’s Upper East Side in this gripping standalone from Pobi (River of the Dead). Tough-as-nails homicide detective Alexandra Hemingway, the city’s last hope, is already burdened with an unexpected pregnancy, lingering grief over a former lover’s slaying, and a stifling heat wave, but she finds herself consumed by the terrifying case, which involves multiple child abductions and a psychopath’s gruesome appetite for appendage removal. With her partner and father figure Detective Phelps at her side, and the NYPD’s full resources at her disposal, Hemingway has everything she needs—except time. And as the attacks continue, she begins to give in to despair. Her struggle—against both internal and external demons—makes this a story for those who can stomach the carnage and existential questioning; they will be spellbound. Agent: Jill Marr, Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. (May)
