    The Ninth Life - Lieutenant Kane...

    An anonymous phone call sends Tampa homicide lieutenant Carl Kane straight to the scene of a murdered woman, a sight far too familiar in his line of work. 
    What’s even more familiar is the manner in which the woman’s life was taken—the slaying is identical to that of victims of a satanic lunatic named Koskinen, yet Kane had captured and put the man away years before. 
    It seems that Koskinen has found himself an admirer, maybe a follower or, worse, someone to kill on his behalf. 
    The first body is just the beginning. The ending holds something much worse. 
    Editorial Review: 
    “Lt. Carl Kane thought he’d closed the books on serial killer Larry Koskinen, who is serving a life sentence in a state mental hospital for carving up his victims—and trying to carve up Kane himself—years ago. But when Carl discovers a dead body exhibiting the killer’s same MO, he finds himself revisiting a case he wants to close the books on for good. As new victims pile up, Reinhard ratchets up the tension big-time, and his fast-paced tale and fine plotting will keep readers turning pages long into the night.” Angela M., Editor, Red Adept Editing

    Most victims of the mafia are the Sicilians themselves. The role of women both as perpetrators and victims has been grossly overlooked. Until now.   
    As the daughter of Sicilian immigrants, in her teens Maria turns her back on her origins and fully embraces the English way of life. Notwithstanding her troubled and humble childhood in London, and backed up by her intelligence, beauty and sheer determination, she triumphantly works her way up to join the upper middle-class of British society. There she becomes a bastion of civility.   
    But a minor incident wakes up feelings of revenge in her like those lurking in Maria's Sicilian origins. As she delves deeper into her mother's family history a murky past unravels, drawing Maria more and more into a mire of vendetta.
