Summary

Move over, Jessica Fletcher and Miss Marple! Make room for another aging woman amateur sleuth--Carolyne Santire, plant-hunter extraordinaire! Carolyne's search for the next major botanical find takes her to Brazil in South America, where she encounters political machinations, mayhem, and...murder. The suspect list is long--fellow scientists, Brazilian land barons, prospectors, a cuckolded video director, a rock star--and, eventually, even her! During the shooting of an entertainment film in the Amazon jungle, amidst threats from a man-eating jaguar, cannibals, and a mysterious British kidnapper, Carolyne finds the prospect of ferreting out the real killer anything but a leisurely stroll in the park. Can she solve the mystery before the next murder occurs? 

A great "cozy" mystery read by a master storyteller.

    Without any leads, the investigation stalls until a chance meeting between Jade and a stranger with memorable blue eyes turns the entire case on its ear.

    Editorial Review: 
    "When police in Omaha, Nebraska, find themselves looking for a serial killer, FBI Agent Jade Monroe and her partner, J.T., are assigned to help with the case. Viciously attacked bodies, most of them female, keep turning up at homes listed with Scenic View Realty, and the agents can’t figure out why. Sutter’s terrific plotting will keep readers guessing whether the quick-witted killer will ever be found. Her pacing has never been better, and those who enjoy a chilling and clever thriller will savor this one.” Angela M., Line Editor, Red Adept Editing

    FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING COTSWOLD MYSTERIES SERIES 
    Fifty-five-year-old Jim Lapsford makes an unusually healthy-looking corpse. A life-long devotee of vitamin pills and herbal remedies, it seems almost ironic that he has succumbed to a heart attack. His GP is convinced that this is the case but trainee undertaker Drew Slocombe isn't so sure and he is convinced that there is enough conflicting medical evidence to merit a coroner's inquest at least. And then there's Jim's personal life: in addition to a long suffering wife, two sons and a grieving terrier, Jim appears to have left behind a series of scorned mistresses. 
    It seems everyone else is happy enough to accept the doctor's verdict and Drew shouldn't really rock the boat, but can he really turn his back on murder? Even so, Drew may have plenty of suspects but he has no proof. And Jim's cremation is days away...

    Mark Billingham is one of the UK’s top crime writers. His books have sold over 5 million copies worldwide and have been translated into twenty-five languages.
    
    With Love Like Blood, a #5 Sunday Times bestseller in the UK, Billingham brought back his hit series character DI Tom Thorne and paired him up for the first time with the straight-laced DI from Die of Shame. In the new novel, The Killing Habit, he brings the unlikely but compelling duo back together again.
    
    Billingham is beloved among the crime community. For Die of Shame he did events along the East Coast with Lee Child, Karin Slaughter, Laura Lippman, Michael Connelly, and Joseph Finder—most of whom have blurbed him, as have Gillian Flynn, George Pelecanos and others. He is also a Bouchercon regular, appearing at the 2017 convention in Toronto. 
    
    In the Dark, a 4-part BBC adaptation of Billingham’s novel of the same name combined with Time of Death, aired in the UK in summer 2017 to a flurry of publicity. Billingham was featured in the first episode of a new true crime documentary series in the UK called “Written in Blood” to talk about the inspiration for Love Like Blood. The episode aired in September 2017 on CBS Reality and has reached over 6.64 million viewers. A BBC adaptation of Rush of Blood is also under development.
