Burton ratchets up the suspense in MERCILESS when Detective Malcolm Kier and Angie Carlson come up against a brutal, brilliant psychopath who leaves behind the gleaming white and perfectly preserved bones of his victims. Kier—and most of Alexandria law enforcement—believe the murderer is Dr. James Dixon. They blame Angie Carlson for setting him free when she defended him at an earlier murder trial at which he was acquitted. Today, Angie’s not at all sure of Dixon’s innocence and is becoming more and more convinced that the police may be right—she helped let loose a killer. As lead after lead dead-ends, a young man claiming to be Eva Rayburn’s half-brother shows up, bringing with him their dead father’s diary. Suddenly, two things are shockingly clear—the killer has always intended to make Angie his ultimate victim, and his madness has roots going back to the Sorority House Murder over a decade ago. In SENSELESS and MERCILESS, Mary Burton once again brings readers stories enhanced by inexplicable crimes, complex relationships, and the strong sense of place they’ve come to expect and applaud, even as they are kept guessing as to whom among the suspects may be guilty and why.
