A Victim of Convenience

(2006)
(The third book in the Castle Street series)
A novel by

 
 
Calgary, Canada's booming oil capital, is caught in the grip of terror as a serial killer with the chilling nickname TLC stalks its streets and pathways. His rampage has put intense pressure on Homicide Detective Chris Crane, the lead investigator in the case. TLC can seemingly strike at will, blatantly displaying the obscenely mutilated bodies of his victims in city parks. As the body count steadily mounts, TLC zeroes in on Chris, acknowledging him as a worthy opponent in the deadly game.

But are the taunts really from TLC? Or are they the work of a sick impersonator? And is there a copycat taking advantage of the situation? Chris must grapple with these and other frustrating questions as he seeks to unmask a killer who, despite his flamboyance and risky taunting of the police, manages to stage his grisly showpieces without leaving any clues behind.
