Here’s the full review, which is in the July 1 issue:

 When several young women are found murdered near bridges in Boston, the media incite panic by suggesting a serial killer is at work. Det. Jake Brogan must handle the fallout. Meanwhile, Jane Ryland, a recently discredited investigative TV journalist-turned-newspaper reporter, uncovers a possible scandal involving a Senate contender. The plot thickens as story lines entwine and Jane’s career and life are endangered. Can Jane’s investigative prowess prevent further scandals and deaths? Will Jake track down the Bridge Killer before more women die? Is there more than just a professional connection between Jane and Jake?

Readers who crave mystery and political intrigue will be mesmerized by this first installment of her new series. [See Prepub Alert, 3/21/12.]    —Mary Todd Chesnut, Northern Kentucky Univ.
