What type of psychotic serial killer searches for the perfect woman, one who is truly special. She cannot be an alcoholic, a drug user, have a bad temperament, etc. She must be innocent. In this case, that killer is Buddy.

Buddy is a glass blower and is searching for the perfect woman to show for eternity. He strangles them and takes their last breath, placing it in one of his specially made glass jars.

Detective John Stallings has a missing daughter of his own, and cannot put that out of his mind while trying to solve these murders of woman. Luckily detective Stallings has a group of various people trying to help capture the killer. Unfortunately, Stallings personal life has gone downhill with the absence of his daughter, his remaining family still needs him.

Keep reading to see if Buddy can complete his goal to fill all his jars, or if the police can stop him in time. Definitely one of a great series to follow.

I want to start by saying, I absolutely loved the first 2 books! I could not put them down and recommended them to EVERYONE. I had per-ordered this book and was excited for it to come out. It was good but just not as good as the 1st 2. This is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

Don't usually read mystery novels (no sex in this one) but this one caught my eye.
Story kept me reading non-stop til the end.
Will order and read James other books and keep looking for the next book in this series.
Terrific read!

He calls himself Buddy and considers himself an artist whose milieu being glass so that his models live forever. He also does repairs to pay his bills and find his subjects. With his angelic looks and gentle demeanor, women hire him feeling safe with him. However, Buddy obsesses over completing his masterpiece. To do so he strangles selected females and captures their last grasp of breath inside a glass container customized for that chosen one.

Jacksonville police failed to realize they have a serial killer hunting their citizens. Detectives John Stallings and Patty Levine work the case of missing teenage Leah Tischler that reminds him of his daughter who vanished three years ago when she was sixteen years old Jeanie. When the corpse of a female strangled with Leah's belt is found at a construction site and another body is found in a children's playground, the JPD conclude a serial killer stalks the city. Obsessing Stallings is determined capture this psychopath ASAP, but knows that it will take a lot of luck to find this man who blends so well when in society.

The third Stallings Jacksonville thriller (see The Perfect Woman and The Perfect Prey) is a super serial killer investigation. Stallings knows time has run out for the next victim and though he feels helpless to prevent her death, he refuses to quit. He and his Jacksonville Sheriff's Department Missing Persons partner Levine are dedicated, diligent detectives who never give up once on a case though his hope to recover Jeanie ebbs and flows with his official workload. Faster than the speed of light, James Andrus provides an exciting tale as "art" steals life.

This book has good character development and a particularly awful killer. Not too many surprises, though. Also, I found it weird that all the women in this novel (and there are many more than usual for a book of this genre) are, without exception, over-the-top sexually aggressive. Not that a man would complain, but a bit strange to depict all women in this manner.

I liked the previous two books by Andrus but this one dragged. The editor missed some obvious errors (referencing a Chrysler 300, then calling it a Charger in another). There were several grammatical errors and missing words in the Kindle version. A disappointing read, but maybe not all the fault of the author.
