Motive by Jonathan Kellerman
A criminal psychologist, Alex Delaware works with the police to help solve the most complex of crimes in Los Angeles. Even hundreds of closed cases to his credit can’t keep LAPD police lieutenant Milo Sturgis from agonising over the crimes that don’t get solved. When Katherine Hennepin is murdered in her home, a single suspect with a solid alibi leads to a dead end – one that even Alex can’t explain. The only thing to do is move on to the next case.
The discovery of a second and then a third crime scene bearing the same taunting signature raises the spectre of a serial killer on a mission, whose twisted method is exceeded only by his manipulation and cunning madness.
