Description
When Eleanor Bellingham-Crump—a socialite responsible for the death of a ten-year-old boy—turns up murdered on the floor of a Hollywood hotel bathroom, wisecracking cops Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs are confronted with a crime of artistic brutality, in their fourth darkly hilarious mystery. Along with the scissors sticking out of Eleanor's lifeless body, the two detectives find a meticulous scrapbook documenting a motive for vengeance in lurid detail. As more bodies are discovered, each one connected by the intricate scrapbooks left at the murder scenes, Lomax and Biggs are on the hunt for a vigilante stalking unpunished criminals.

"In [Marshall] Karp's excellent fourth mystery featuring LAPD detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs (after 2009's Flipping Out), the pair look into the stabbing death of British citizen Eleanor Bellingham-Crump, who escaped prosecution for killing a 10-year-old boy while driving drunk by virtue of her husband's diplomatic immunity. The killer left a scrapbook at the scene detailing the circumstances of Bellingham-Crump's crime. The FBI fills the detectives in on two other murders, apparently by the same killer, a vigilante targeting criminals who managed to evade justice. The investigators luck out when a lead takes them to Gladys Wade, an inmate who claims to know the murderer's identity and wants to barter that secret for her parole. Karp offers multiple twists that will keep most readers guessing until the end, and balances the grim plot with Biggs's inexhaustible supply of genuinely humorous one-liners. Kinky Friedman and Carl Hiaasen fans should latch onto this series."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
