D’Amato, Barbara – 3rd in series
Patrol officer Suze Figueroa and her partner, Norm Bennis are assigned to detective detail, after E. coli fells detectives at a retirement banquet, and are looking for a shoplifter targeting women in up-scale department stores, and for a serial killer of homeless people, A much greater menace awaits Figueroa at the home she shares with her son, her disabled sister, and her sister's family: a psychopath has entered the large Victorian house, observing the family undetected, awaiting his chance to kill.
I very much enjoy D’Amato’s books. She provides very good character development, strong sense of place, and believable dialogue. These are police procedurals, but much less dark, though not less suspenseful, than some.
