Publisher's Summary

Nowhere do startling intrigue and enthralling authenticity come together so powerfully as in the Kali O'Brien thrillers from former attorney Jonnie Jacobs. Now the San Francisco lawyer takes on a case that hits too close to home: the murder of her best friend by a serial killer who steps from the very pages of Kali's own past....
When her friend, Anne, misses a dinner engagement, Kali knows that something must be wrong, but nothing could possibly prepare her for the news that Anne's body has been found - strangled and provocatively posed next to a dumpster. When a yellow rose and a poem are sent to Anne's husband, Kali's worst fears are realized.
Kali has seen that particular calling card before. Eight years ago, while working for the district attorney's office, she helped to prosecute a serial killer known as the Bayside Strangler - a man recently executed for his crimes. When Anne's death is followed by another similar one, it raises the possibility that either an innocent man was executed - or a dangerous copycat is on the loose. Either way spells doom for Owen Nelson, the ambitions DA who became famous for putting the Bayside Strangler behind bars - and who is now running for governor of California.
With his political career hanging in the balances, Owen persuades Kali to return to the DA's office for one purpose only: to obtain an airtight conviction. Now, Kali must put aside her grief and delve deeply into the sealed secrets of a case long thought closed, searching for the clue that links the past to the present - and for the deadly mistake that let a killer walk free, waiting for the chance to strike again. When a third body is discovered, Kali realizes that the victims are anything but random. A chilling pattern is emerging, a pattern that points directly to the next target - Kali herself....

Engaging legal-thriller

What does George Kuch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

It was interesting to use a male narrator over a female one for this novel but I thought it worked very well.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was swept along by a very enjoyable story. A decisive and strong lead character. I liked the stage at which the bad guy was included within the story and found it very enjoyable.
