    A serial killer is at large in this “ingenious” New Orleans–set mystery “for those who like their lab talk down and dirty” (Kirkus Reviews).   Portly New Orleans chief medical examiner Andy Broussard and sprightly criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn have dealt with strange murders before—but they’ve never faced a calculating killer who knows their every move. A pair of fatal stabbings are linked by Scrabble tiles left on the bodies of the victims. Someone’s trying to send a message—and Broussard knows it’s meant for him.   Whoever’s behind the slayings is clearly an expert in forensics, perhaps even a former rival of Broussard’s. Forced to play a deadly battle of wits against a brilliant opponent, he and Franklyn must use every bit of their knowledge—and courage—if they hope to stop the killer’s final play.   With “lots of Louisiana color, pinpoint plotting and two highly likable characters,” this is a fast-paced thriller full of Southern flavor you won’t soon forget (Publishers Weekly).
