With the same unflinching eye and nonstop suspense that marked her acclaimed debut, Blue Mercy, Illona Haus presents her second Kay Delaney novel -- a twisted journey into the dark recesses of a killer's mind.

A crime that defies imagination....

The killer doesn't leave a body. Only a heart -- a human heart -- savagely ripped from an unknown victim and left on the snowy grounds of an elite private high school. Is it a calling card for the Baltimore police or a demented message for someone else?

A hunt that must defy all odds....

Uncovering tenuous ties to previous unsolved murders, Homicide Detectives Kay Delaney and Danny Finnerty are drawn into an investigation unlike any they have ever worked. As a series of brutal crimes unravels and the clock ticks -- too fast -- on a new victim, Kay and Finn are called upon to brave the darkest side of human nature and obsession. Can they put a stop to a madman's terrifying spree?

Blue Valor is the second installment in the Kay Delaney - Dennis Finnerty homicide detective team saga. Set in Baltimore, Kay and Finn are trying to solve the latest serial killer mystery. There is a lot at stake in this case for Kay and Finn, both personally and professionally. I was completely absorbed by the plot and non-stop action. The characters are well developed and as a reader I felt I could really understand the characters' emotions. A must read for any crime drama enthusiast. Read Blue Mercy first so you can follow the story line in chronological order.

Baltimore homicide detectives Kay Delaney and Danny Finnerly are partners on the job and in their personal lives even though she has commitment problems that will not allow her to move in with her lover let alone marry him. Their latest case starts off bizarrely when a human heart is left near the posh private Langley Country School. During the interviews of the staff, the two cops learn that a student Leslie Richter was murdered two months ago.---- Kat has a hunch that the heart and the murdered girl are connected, which makes her wonder if they have a serial killer on their hands. A few weeks later, another young woman is raped, beaten, and left for dead near a highway she dies in the hospital. Forensic evidence affirms that the same person killed the three coeds and when a fourth has been abducted Kay is in a race against the clock to find her before she too dies.---- Fans of police procedural thrillers like those written by Kay Hooper and Leslie Glass will want to read the tense BLUE VALOR. The story line that provides the tormented internal soul of police officers especially how their struggles with a nasty case involving youngsters impact their emotions and subsequently their personal lives. Illona Haus is a talented author who provides many twists to the homicide investigation that will keep her audience wondering what will happens next. However, it is the humanizing of her heroine and her partner that makes this a very worthy read.--- Harriet Klausner
