Wounds

Also Available In
A man's lifeless body is found in the fresh soil of San Diego's botanical garden. Cause of death is asphyxiation, an easy call for the medical examiner. More mysterious, however, are the tiny drops of blood on the victim's skin, resulting from hundreds of punctures.

A rabbi leaving his house for work expects a regular day at the synagogue. That quickly changes when he discovers a dead man on his front lawn, clearly beaten to death.

Motorcycle riders racing along the empty streets of an abandoned military base stumble across another man's corpse, its skin revealing long, red-purple marks of a thrashing given with wood dowels.

The numbers mount. Each week another victim and another mysterious clue in a game of mass murder the police don't want to lose. The solution rests with Dr. Ellis Poe, a religious professor who only wishes to be left alone with his books and classes.

But evil must be faced, and the choice is no longer his own.

Fast-paced police thriller
5 stars By Iola, Jun 06 2013
It's the week before Easter, and a student from San Diego Theological Seminary has just been found murdered in a manner that is both brutal and unique. Carmen Rainmondi is the police detective assigned to the case, along with partner Bob Tock. And one murder with no leads soon turns into two, then ... 

Ellis Poe is a professor at the Seminary, and is both surprised and worried when Carmen Rainmondi turns up to interview him about the victim. Because he recognises her. She's the image of her sister, who he saw murdered years ago. Ellis sees that Carmen is still tormented because the murderer was never found-perhaps because he never reported what he saw. Yet it seems that Ellis might hold the key to this case. 

Once I started, I just couldn't put down. Not only is there the mystery over finding the murderer before he strikes again, but there is the elephant in the room of what Ellis hasn't told Carmen about her sister. Ellis was the archetype of the college professor-intelligent, highly-principled, but a total wimp. He knows what he should do, but he's afraid to do it.  

All in all, Wounds is an exciting thriller, albeit a bit gory in places. Thanks to BH Publishing and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
