*Starred Review* In Gardner’s seventh Detective D. D. Warren thriller (following Catch Me, 2012), the Rose Killer is re-creating the crimes of Harry Day, a serial killer who kept the skin of his victims as a souvenir—153 vials of souvenirs. Day’s legacy also includes two daughters. Shana distinguished herself at 14 as the youngest person in Massachusetts history to be tried for murder as an adult. A psychiatrist specializing in pain management, her sister, Adeline, was born with congenital insensitivity to pain. Detective Warren goes to see Adeline professionally, after she is injured at a crime scene. When she learns that Adeline is Harry Day’s daughter, she asks her to help identify anyone who would have been influenced by her father. The obvious suspect is Shana. But how could a woman who has spent the last decade in solitary confinement be responsible for these vicious mutilations and murders? In this strong addition to the series, Gardner retains her place on thrillerdom’s top tier. If they haven’t already discovered her, fans of Tess Gerritsen, Alafair Burke, and Meg Gardiner would love an introduction. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Gardner has a reserved seat on most best-seller lists, and she’ll be claiming her spot once again. --Karen Keefe
