Steve Mosby. Pegasus Crime, $25.95 (336p) ISBN 978-1-68177-558-6
This fusion of mystery, police procedural, and noir thriller from CWA Dagger Award–winner Mosby (The Reckoning on Cane Hill) is pure crime fiction gold. A serial killer who has been abducting women from an unspecified area of England for almost two decades is identified after a car accidentally crashes into his garage and reveals a nearly-dead victim. Det. Insp. Will Turner, whose first love was one of the victims, vows to capture the man whom the media has dubbed the Red River Killer. The search is complicated by the husband of one of the victims, who appears to know more than he should about the case, and by a strange set of notes allegedly from the killer sent to the police that may indicate the involvement of another person. The narrative is powered by darkly lyrical prose and a cast of nuanced characters, but it’s the bombshell plot twists at novel’s end that will leave readers more than satisfied. This is one of those exceedingly rare novels that’s virtually impossible to put down. Agent: Carolyn Whitaker, London Independent Books (U.K.). (Dec.)
