Girl Missing - Tess Gerritsen
The first body is a mystery. Shes young. Shes beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston medical examiner Cat Novak, betrays no secrets - except for a notebook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. The next body is a warning. When a second victim is discovered, Cat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the city streets: a shadowy madman without mercy or apparent motive. The police are skeptical. The mayor wont listen. And Cats chief suspect is one of the citys most prominent citizens. The final body... might be hers. With the death toll rising, Cat races to expose a deadly conspiracy and the brutal killer at its heart - a killer who will stalk her from the dangerous streets of the inner city to the corridors of power. Because hes closer than she ever dreamt. And every move she makes could be her very last.
