A Righteous Kill by Kerrigan Byrne
A Shakespearean Suspense
“’Tis one thing to be tempted, another thing to fall.”
~William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure.
He’s no stranger to sin…
A prolific serial killer is crucifying and ‘baptizing’ the working girls of Portland, and FBI Special Agent Luca Ramirez is locked in a desperate race to prevent the next casualty. The game changes when the latest victim is pulled out of the Willamette River alive, and Luca knows this witness may be his key to breaking the case. When the fanatical killer threatens her life a second time, Luca is assigned to protect the most unique and captivating woman he’s ever met by going undercover as her lover. He finds himself locked in a relentless game of cat and mouse with an elusive and violent psychopath, while battling his temptation for the alluring woman he’s charged to protect with his life. As the fatalities continue to mount, so does the intensity of his desire for a woman who should be forbidden, but is determined to dial up the heat.
Bestselling author Kerrigan Byrne laces dangerous, edgy content with palette-cleansing humor in this sexy, character-driven series debut that will leave you wondering… Is there such a thing as A Righteous Kill?
Portland Oregon has a very active serial killer known as "John the Baptist", his victims have all been red haired prostitutes, then he nails their hands to a cross and piercing their sides with an antique Roman sword. Then he wraps them in Catholic Robes and completes their baptism by dumping them in the Williamette River. But he fails to complete Hero's baptism when she refuses to die. Enter Special Agent Ramirez who has been trailing our killer after 6 kills.
This book is wonderfully detailed, you "see" what the author describes in great detail, my favorite thing about the book is the Shakespearean quotes to "guide" to through each chapter. Also, Agent Ramirez' obsession with designer shoes, Bruno Magli Boots and Cole Haan full his shoe collection.
Your heroine named Hero Viola Katrova-Conner comes with a very huge family "Knocks, Brown, Rohm, Dim Tree, Dra, Pop and Mmph" which translates into FBI agent brother Rown, Navy Seal brother Knox, bad boy motorcyclist Dimtri, and ADA Timandra, looking forward to the next books in the series.
"I'll follow you and make a heaven out of the hell, and I'll die, die by your hand which I love so well." William Shakespeare
