book five of the Bo Austen series
A year and a half after the murder of his girlfriend, Bo Austen still hasn’t found a healthy way to cope with the loss, but between long nights of gambling and several one-night stands peppered in between, he’s found one of most unhealthy ways to deal with it all-borderline alcoholism. When a brutal homicide in Clinstone sets itself up for national news, Jacob Mason calls up the forensic analyst.
An unidentified victim’s scattered remains litter the ditches alongside U.S. Route 75. Her body, cut into small chunks with what Bo identifies as a cleaver, has been spread out over two miles of road. Shutting down the only major road that cuts straight through Clinstone draws attention from both the citizens and the media. It isn’t long before they gather at every road block.
The victim’s head is perched atop a stop sign, a single white rose held between her teeth.
Can Bo fight the urge to drink long enough to solve another violent crime in Clinstone, Minnesota? Can he go back to being himself long enough to figure out why Clinstone is the city of choice for The White Rose Butcher?
