Lt. "Jack," short for Jacqueline, Daniels can't seem to sustain a relationship. Her partner, Herb, will eat anything, anytime. Together, they are on the hunt for "The Gingerbread Man," a serial killer who tortures women before killing them. Oh, and the FBI profilers think it's a hunchback who likes horses.
This was great! The characters are marvelous, the dialogue is crisp and funny, and yet the killer is creepy and terrifying. The story is fast paced and doesn't let up; it's a definite "don't bother me, I'm reading" book, but you might want to read it during the day as the villain is that awful. It's a wonderful balance in contrasts and a very good read. I've ordered book two, and I'm ready for it.
