The Ninth Life: Book Two in The Lieutenant Kane Dedicated to Death Series

An anonymous phone call sends Tampa homicide lieutenant Carl Kane straight to the scene of a murdered woman, a sight far too familiar in his line of work.

What's even more familiar is the manner in which the woman's life was taken - the slaying is identical to that of victims of a satanic lunatic named Koskinen, yet Kane had captured and put the man away years before.

It seems that Koskinen has found himself an admirer, maybe a follower or, worse, someone to kill on his behalf.

The first body is just the beginning. The ending holds something much worse.

Editorial Review:

"Lt. Carl Kane thought he'd closed the books on serial killer Larry Koskinen, who is serving a life sentence in a state mental hospital for carving up his victims - and trying to carve up Kane himself - years ago. But when Carl discovers a dead body exhibiting the killer's same MO, he finds himself revisiting a case he wants to close the books on for good. As new victims pile up, Reinhard ratchets up the tension big-time, and his fast-paced tale and fine plotting will keep readers turning pages long into the night."
