Once Upon a Crime

The most dangerous killer is the one you know nothing about. When a Fort Worth police detective finds herself caught between a child custody battle and the hunt for a cunning psychotic killer, she must juggle conflicting priorities. Detective Madison Chase must find a way to keep her most prized possession—her young daughter—safe from a killer of sexual predators who leaves rhymes as clues and an ex-husband hell-bent on gaining custody of their daughter.

The hunt for a serial killer becomes personal in this absolute nail biter. Michael Connelly fans may find a new favorite in Alan Brenham.
