Keye Street is an ex-FBI profiler, now doing skip-traces and consulting with the Atlanta Police Department after her drinking washed her out of the FBI. Keye is now involved with Aaron Rauser, the Atlanta homicide detective she worked with in the first book. Many characters appear again; the reader gets to know Keye's mother and father better, as well has her assistant. We meet Keye's cousin, Miki, who is suicidal and spent her youth cutting herself. Miki is a brilliant photographer who appears to be getting her life back together, except she thinks someone is following her. When she calls the police, they dismiss her because of her mental problems. But when they find a dead body swinging in her foyer and link it to a dead boy and then a dead prostitute, even the APD cannot ignore her claims. Keye and Aaron are on the case. While I was able to figure out many of Miki's problems were being caused by her stalker, the ending was fast and furious and the villan came out of the blue. There is also a sub-plot, ripped from the headlines, involving a crematorium in north Georgia. Another good read from Amanda Kyle Williams. I met this author at ALA and really enjoyed her first book; a third Keye Street book is on the way.
