The Rainy Day Killer by Michael J. McCann is a really good crime novel. It starts out at a crime scene and just gets more interesting from there.
I like the detectives in this book. The man in charge of the investigation is not only smart but nice and the woman seems like someone you could actually hang out with.
The story in this book is about a serial killer who picks up women in the rain (or just before it rains) and taunts the cops by sending the victims clothing and jewelry to them and making phone calls to whoever is in charge of investigating.
The killer has gotten away with it a few times before but this time he has met his match.
I really like the way he was caught.
The main characters in this book also star in several other books. I expect those books are just as good as this one was and I will read them as soon as I get a chance.
About the book :
A man in a business suit offers the protection of his umbrella to an unsuspecting woman, and several days later she turns up dead on a river bank, raped and strangled. The terrifying serial killer known in the press as the Rainy Day Killer is now hunting new victims in the city of Glendale … whenever it rains.
Homicide Lieutenant Hank Donaghue leads the investigation as the killer begins to communicate directly to him through phone calls and grisly packages containing body parts of his victims. Assisted by FBI profiler Ed Griffin, Donaghue and Detective Karen Stainer pursue an elusive predator who leaves no physical evidence behind.
The timing couldn’t be worse, however, as Karen Stainer’s attention is divided between the investigation and preparations for her upcoming wedding. Distracted and uncertain about her future, Stainer is furious when she learns that the Rainy Day Killer has followed her to Virginia, where the wedding will take place, and that he intends to make her his next victim!
