book two of the Bo Austen-Taylor series
Less than a month into his promotion in L.A., Bo Austen-Taylor slowly settles into a new routine. Spending the week in Clinstone, spending the weekend in Los Angeles. It keeps him present in each aspect of his career, keeps him in touch with all points. Or, that is the ritual until a triple homicide brings a psychic to Clinstone on a Friday, and a single homicide keeps him in place on a Saturday.
The Saturday homicide is the one that draws his attention the most. Unlike the Friday homicides, this one was definitely human, definitely nothing paranormal or supernatural.
This one has brains in his stomach.
The timeline for the victim comes through with ease. He went missing on Wednesday, was well-fed until late Friday night, and was murdered and laid out to be found early Saturday morning. The timeline is the easy part. The how and the when are the easy parts. It’s the why and the where that are hard. Why was he kidnapped and fed cooked human brains, and where did it happen?
When a new killer blows through town, it’s eventually easy for Bo to pick up their pattern. They like rituals, and they become predictable. But how can cannibalism be predictable when he’s chasing after The Cook?
