Homicide Detective Avery Black has been through hell. Once a top criminal defence attorney, she fell from grace when she managed to get a brilliant Harvard professor off Howard Randall—only to watch him kill again. She lost her husband and her daughter Rose, and her life fell apart around her.
Trying to redeem herself, Avery has turned to the other side of the law. Working her way up the ranks, she has reached Homicide Detective, to the scorn of her fellow officers, who still remember what she did, and who will always hate her.
Yet even they cannot deny Avery’s brilliant mind, and when a disturbing serial killer strikes fear into the heart of Boston, killing girls from elite colleges, it is Avery that they turn to. It is Avery’s chance to prove her, to finally find the redemption she craves. And yet, as she is soon to find out, Avery has come up against a killer as brilliant and daring as she.
In this game of psychological cat and mouse, women are dying with mysterious clues, and the stakes could not be higher. Edwin Pesh kills kidnaps the girl by injecting drug made from some plant and kills them, open ups the body parts and stuff in cats dead body, clicks their picture to treasure them in basement as art gallery in the name of Roman mythology. Post killing, the body is stitched back and cleaned and disposed in lonely areas with smile plated on their face. A frantic race against time leads Avery through series of shocking and unexpected twists—culminating in climax that even Avery could not imagine.
A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, CAUSE TO KILL marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
