Texas-based crime reporter Molly Cates has just  published her first book, describing the  blood-curdling exploits of serial killer Louie Bronk. Now on  death row, Louie's sentence is about to be carried  out. Molly will be there as a witness, and she  wants to write about it—the final coda to Louie's  story. But suddenly, she's being strongly  discouraged by her boss at the Lone Star  Monthly and by Charlie McFarland, the millionaire  real estate developer whose first wife, Tiny, was  Bronk's most famous victim—and the only one whose  murder is a capital offense. Then Molly starts to  receive dark hints that Louie may not have killed  Tiny after all. There is another murder following  Louis's M.O.—one he could not have committed.  The veracity of Molly's book is threatened—and then  her very life. Caught between a rock and a hard  place, Molly realizes that by attempting to save  Louis she is putting her own life on the line, and  discrediting her own work. Mary Willis Walker brings  a lusty new voice to the mystery scene. Already  recognized for her first novel, she has now created  a character just cheeky and gusty enough to take  her place among the top ranks of female  protagonists such as Kinsey Millhone and Kay Scarpetta.

At the outset, I was disappointed to find this a serial killer mystery. Frankly, since my wife is a fan of Criminal Minds, I¿ve had enough serial killers to last a lifetime. But as I got into the story, there were several things that changed my mind. First, this isn¿t about catching a serial killer, it¿s about proving him innocent of the murder he¿s condemned to death for. Second, the characters are very well drawn and the overall writing excellent. And third, I had no idea until the end who did commit the murder. I really liked Mary Willis Walker¿s style and regret not discovering her until now ¿ I¿ll read her other books.
