A doctor who is a serial killer kidnaps a detective who is working on the very case to catch her, the serial killer. I have to wonder if he was being tongue in cheek with that. Detective Archie Sheridan was the lead investigator in the Beauty Killer Task Force who was captured and tortured to the brink of death by Gretchen Lowell, a psychopathic serial killer, before she was captured and sent to life in prison, barely escaping the death sentence. Since we are talking about Gretchen, I have to say that she is one of the most interesting characters I have read in recent memory. I had an unbelievably good time reading it!
