Summary

“Have you ever wanted to go back in time? Here is your opportunity.” Bess Turner, a woman of the twenty-first century, would like to invite you to accompany her on a journey to London, England. The season is Christmas. The year is 1847. The adventure begins with a light in a window. Mesmerized, Bess hears street noises behind her. No, that cannot be; she is in her living room, looking at a miniature building on the mantel. True, but …. Meet her colourful Victorian family, stay for a cup of tea, and taste the flaming plum pudding. Hold your breath and squeeze into the dreaded corset. Swirl around the majestic Vauxhall to the Viennese Waltz. Take in the smells and sounds of the horse-drawn carriages along busy Fleet Street. Enjoy the ride; it is The Bess Time.

    Tourists and natives trolling bars and the scenic places that make up the French Quarter are being hunted.  A mutilator intent on gathering trophies made up of swatches of skin laden with tattoos and scars is the hunter.  The victims, left drugged but alive, are unable to help the police with a description of the perpetrator.  With no clues and a serial criminal at large, the local police have no choice but to turn to the Serial Crimes Tracking Unit.
    
     
    The Serial Crimes Tracking Unit, better known as SCTU, is used to dealing with dead bodies, so they are unsure their hunting skills will be useful.  While the perpetrator might fit a profile, the living are of little help.  After all, they don’t even remember being attacked.  Dealing with the living, especially those who have been victimized has never been a strong point of Aislinn Cain.  As Aislinn and her team go to work at solving this case, they find themselves in a race against the clock. It is only a matter of time before their serial mutilator escalates into a serial killer.

    Edgar Award Finalist: A woman contemplates murder when she discovers her husband’s affair in this domestic thriller set off the coast of Maine. Helen Fraser can’t remember who drew the gun, but she does remember coming home hoping her husband would apologize for what he’d done the night before. She remembers that he refused, and she remembers throwing her first punch. But then, suddenly, there was a gun in her hand, and it went off. Seven shots, just like that, and her husband was dead.   That’s the story Tavie Garland hears through her headphones as she transcribes tapes for her husband, Rob. From the first time she hears Helen’s voice, she dislikes the woman, and is certain the world would be better off if she were dead. And then she hears what sounds like her Rob making a pass at Helen, and finds herself contemplating murder. But that’s only the beginning. Death is coming to the foggy Maine island where the Garland family is vacationing, and Tavie will have to fight to be the one who survives.   Richard Forrest chronicled countless stories of betrayal, jealousy, and murder over four decades. Who Killed Mr. Garland’s Mistress?, his Edgar Award–nominated debut, is breathtaking proof that he was firing on all cylinders right from the start.

    Aislinn Cain and the Serial Crimes Tracking Unit are being sent to the hottest place in North America to investigate mummified remains that were found in Death Valley. When Xavier Reece uncovers elemental mercury in the heart of one of the mummies, they discover there is more than Mother Nature at work.  
     
    The victims have matching injuries, but only one of the bodies reveals the liquid metal, raising questions about how many killers are using the valley as a dumping ground. The team will have to use extraordinary means to connect all the victims to a single killer. However, with most of the victims unidentifiable due to the condition of the remains, their usual procedures of investigation are impossible.  
     
    With 32 bodies already found, how high will the body count rise before Aislinn Cain and the SCTU can capture this killer?
