The first case is a psychopath known as ‘the Lipstick Killer’ who terrorizes San Francisco by randomly murdering mothers and their babies in the street. The second is a cat burglar nicknamed ‘Hello Kitty’ who ends up being framed for murder when a well known movie star shoots his wife following a robbery at their home. Being an actor, the husband rehearses his story so well it is difficult to believe and his excuses are too flimsy.
The real mystery though involves the cryptic messages that are left at the crime scene after the shooting of young mothers and their children. Nothing makes sense with this case, but Lindsay is prepared to put everything on the line to close this case, even taking off her clothes and prancing around naked just to prove she is serious about catching the killer.
While most of the attention has been focused on the murder of the rich socialite, the serial killer escalates his behavior. Lindsay tries staying on top of both the crimes, but when the crimes of the serial killer starts becoming more demanding, she turns her attention in this direction as she truly believes this person is far more dangerous.
Just as the situation begins to demand more of Lindsay’s time, the ‘Hello Kitty’ burglar calls Lindsay confessing to the burglaries, but not the murders, convincing Lindsay that nothing adds up with the husbands’ story.
Although this book may not be Pulitzer material, if you are looking for a read that is full of suspense and a fast moving plot, then this is the book for you.
