This was among a box of books given to me. Will try it someday.
Some of Coughlin's earlier books are being reissued and this is one I hadn't read. Lieutenant Anthony Russo's long career included the successful capture of a serial killer years ago. Edward Teague got an insanity defense and was committed to a mental hospital. But, now he's out but few know it. Russo has to start from scratch and the bodies are piling up. This is a well written, engaging thriller.

Excellent; serial killer spells out his name using cities where he kills people, then goes after lawyer and cop who previously put him away.
Excellent story. A serial killer released from the Hospital for the Criminally Insane is up to his old tricks.
Not for everyone because of the violence, but Coughlin weaves a tale that is hard to put down.

Pretty good serial killer vs ace detective book. Somewhat predictable, but entertaining.
