Unturned Stones

362 halaman5 jam


Violence strikes without warning—and seemingly without reason. An elderly white woman is assaulted in her home. The unseen intruder slices her hand off at the wrist, then applies a tourniquet and dials 911 before leaving. A Vietnamese jogger is sprayed with Mace from behind a bush. While the jogger is blinded, the assailant breaks his leg with a baseball bat. Finally, a young black transsexual has her breasts burned by an assailant who first knocked her unconscious. Though gruesome and mystifying, there seems to be nothing to connect the three attacks.

Star detective Robert Foster has been forced to resign from the San Diego Police Department for what his superiors labeled “insubordination.” Foster prefers to call it “thinking outside the box,” the result of his unique, somewhat OCD personality. Either way, his days on the force are over—until he makes a surprising discovery. While surveying crime reports surreptitiously provided to him by his former partner, Foster stumbles across the three assaults. As he looks more closely at the details, he recognizes something his former colleagues have all missed—these attacks are SO completely different that they have to have been planned that way. But why?

Intrigued by the paradox—and by the challenge—Foster launches an unofficial investigation. As the violence escalates and the assaults begin hitting closer to home, he finds himself pulled into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a foe who seems to be every bit as clever as he is.

Add in a beautiful blonde reporter who may not be what she seems, a brilliant psychologist happily turned homeless person, a possible split personality, and clues from a Shakespearean play sent by the perpetrator, and you have Unturned Stones, a gripping novel of mystery and suspense you will not soon forget.
