Two of the primary characters are Detective Inspector Anthony Parglietto and Flynn Parker, his investigative reporter boyfriend. Anthony is investigating a number of increasingly brutal rapes and killings by a serial killer who has been dubbed the "Bow Tie Killer" because of his pattern of tying elaborate bows on the necks of his victims. The killer seems to have a personal issue with Anthony and sends him taunting messages and threatens to target people he knows or cares about. The story is fascinating as we see Anthony deal with his frustration in not catching the killer as the number, frequency, and brutality of the killings increase, department politics, and his desire to protect the public and those he cares about.
The story also raises the questions: (1) What is justice? (2) What would you do to keep those you care about safe?
Excellent story. I highly recommend it.
Anthony is the lead detective on the case & his boyfriend Flynn is a journalist who has publicly made statements that he would like to tell BTK's story. BTK seems to have some kind of vendetta against Anthony, so he kidnaps Flynn & terrorizes him. He returns him unharmed, but sends Flynn emails with clues to his identity & about his victims. He threatens to kill Anthony if Flynn reveals this information, so Flynn is torn as what to do.
BTK always manages to stay one step ahead of the police. Then new information is given to Anthony by a doctor who suspects his boyfriend is BTK & it's a race against time to track him down & arrest him.
This book had me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down. I'm a fan of Susan Mac Nicol's books & she did not disappoint! There's also some hot sex with Anthony & Flynn, with a little bondage added in too!
