Baker & Taylor
Detective Stella Mooney heads up the investigation into the murder of Janis Parker, a crime in which the victim's roommate Stephanie James could be a likely suspect since the two young women shared a boyfriend, but the case is complicated by Stephanie's disappearance and the discovery of another corpse.

McMillan Palgrave
Once she had been beautiful. Now she was eight days dead, her body slashed with more than fifty cuts.

Janis Parker - young, successful and glamorous - had shared her modern Notting Hill apartment with flatmate Stephanie James. But now Janis is dead - and Stephanie has disappeared.

Heading up the investigation, Detective Stella Mooney soon has her first suspect, in the shape of Mark Ross - Stephanie's boyfriend and Janis's secret lover . . .

But then another body is discovered - slashed fifty times.

Clearly these are no domestic killings. It seems Stella and her team are looking for that most dangerous of creatures: a killer who hunts to feed a terrible appetite.

But the truth is they are up against something even more terrifying. . .

Second in a beautifully-crafted hardboiled British cop series; first book in series got a starred Publishers Weekly, Kirkus and Booklist, as well as a rave review in The Chicago Tribune and by Marilyn Stasio in The New York Times Book Review

Janis Parker - young, successful, and glamorous - had shared her upscale Notting Hill apartment with roommate Stephanie James. But now Janis is dead, and Stephanie has disappeared, and the only thing that the police know for sure is that someone wanted Janis to be very, very dead - she was stabbed at least fifty times.
Heading up the investigation is Detective Stella Mooney - smart, brash, and fierce on the outside, but just a little shaky on the inside. She soon has her first suspect in the shape of Mark Ross, Stephanie's boyfriend. (And speaking of boyfriends, Stella seems to have two at the moment. One of them has got to go - but which one?)
Stella soon realizes that she and her team are looking for that most dangerous of creatures, a killer who hunts to satisfy a horrible appetite. But the truth turns out to be even more terrifying.
