“Readers will be turning the pages into the wee hours of the night, trying to solve the mystery along with Tully and Koesler.” —
Has the Detroit Police Department found the perpetrator of one of the most gruesome serial murders in Detroit’s history—the brutal mutilation of prostitutes? Father Robert Koesler has a special interest in solving one of the most challenging cases in his career.
In this tenth Kienzle mystery, Koesler—Detroit’s most famous Catholic priest—may be facing his toughest test yet. On Sunday afternoons, in Detroit’s inner city, older prostitutes are being picked up by someone described by witnesses as a man dressed in clerical garb. By the time that Detroit’s Homicide Division enters the picture, the victims have been strangled, mutilated, and finally, branded—in a strange place—with a strange marking.
