Tracking the Butcher

"Tracking the Butcher: In Search of a Serial Killer (Elgie Reynolds, LAPD Book 1)"  by  William Joiner

A sadistic serial killer, known as the “Butcher” is loose in Los Angeles. He has a particular taste for carving up prostitutes, but they are only the first course in the Butcher’s banquet. In a letter to the media and the police, the Butcher exposes his real targets — cheating wives. He attacks them the same way he did the prostitutes: twenty shallow and two deep stab wounds. Assigned to bring the Butcher to justice are Lieutenant Elgie Reynolds, Detective Quinn Kim, and Forensic Psychologist Dr. Lucas Connors. They follow the blood trail left in the Butcher’s wake. His blood lust increases with each body. The Butcher proves to be a cunning adversary for Elgie and his crew. He is so adept at blending in that he begins to go into bars, pick up women, kills them, and still, no one knows who he is. He seems to blend in with the crowd: nondescript. The Butcher manages to kill without leaving a trace of evidence or a clue to his identity. He goes so far as to call Reynolds and tell him he’s seen him, he’s closer than he thinks. But even that’s not enough to satisfy his ego. The Butcher needs a new thrill. He needs more attention. After all, what good is it to actually get away with murder if no one knows about it.
