    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Up-and-coming Mission County, Pennsylvania, prosecutor Kate Magda has been given the assignment of a lifetime: lead counsel on a string of murders rocking the community. As the privileged daughter of a powerful local judge, Kate views the case as her chance to show her boss, her family, and the public that she is more than just "the judge's daughter." As Kate delves into the case, she becomes convinced that she shares a personal link with the killer, who seems to know intimate details about a tragic childhood event from Kate's past - an event she'd long been trying to forget. Paranoia sets in, the night terrors return, and Kate has a strong sense that she's the killer's next victim. She no longer feels assigned to the case... she is the case, and solving it is her only chance for survival." -- back cover.

LJ Reviews 2017 December #1

Prosecutor Kate Magda is the daughter of an important local judge in Mission County, PA. When she is assigned the lead on a notorious serial killer case, she sees it as a chance to make a name for herself, even though she will need to work with homicide detective Sam Hart, an occasional romantic partner, who has also kept a watchful eye on Kate for her father. When Kate and her cousin Tess were children, they survived a brutal attack by her uncle Ron Wells. The three serial murders eerily resemble the crimes committed by Wells. Tensions in the county escalate when Tess confesses to the Reds murders and politics come into play. Family secrets, childhood memories, and old crimes influence the present in this suspenseful debut. Kate is a gutsy character, and her romance with Sam is enjoyable. An open-ended finale leaves room for future conflicts within the Magda family. VERDICT A solid bet for fans of dark crime dramas.—ACT

Lawyer Stahl's exciting first novel pits Mission County, Pa., prosecutor Kate Magda against a serial killer who targets redheads, shaving their bodies and stuffing a cloth with the initials RTW written in black marker into each of their throats. Kate, who has reddish-blonde hair, begins to worry that the murders are being committed with her in mind and that she might be next. Meanwhile, several relationships pose problems for her. Kate has to fight her returning feelings for her former lover Sam Hart, the investigating detective. She must also interact with Cameron Cox, a married defense attorney, who's running for district attorney against her boss. Moreover, Kate's father, the county's president judge, has Sam monitoring Kate and reporting back to him for fear she's in over her head. Stahl keeps the reader on a roller-coaster ride with unexpected twists and turns to the end. (Jan.)
