Henry looked out over the grand vista of Portland. The city skyline. The mountains. Take away the news helicopters he could see approaching from the distance and it was something to behold. Henry ticked off the crime scenes on his hand. "The Gorge," he said. "Pittock Mansion. The Rose Garden. What do all of them have in common?"
Since serial killer Gretchen Lowell went on the run, following Detective Archie Sheridan's latest near-fatal encounter with her, the city of Portland has descended into Beauty Killer hysteria. Even fan sites have sprung up online, where admirers of Gretchen can congregate to discuss their heroine.

Archie Sheridan has spent the last few months in the city's psychiatric hospital, battling with his addiction to painkillers and his strange obsession with the woman who tortured him.
But soon he, along with the Beauty Killer taskforce and journalist Susan Ward, finds himself investigating a new spate of killings - bodies start to turn up at local beauty spots, their eyeballs removed. Could this be the work of a copy-cat? Or has Gretchen really returned? One thing is certain: whoever is behind these brutal murders, they will do whatever it takes to get to Archie...

The writing style ant the story are very fast and there is a lot of suspense in the story. The relationship b...
Evil at Heart, the third of the Gretchen Lowell/Archie Sheridan thrillers, picks up just months after the end of Sweetheart. Gretchen Lowell, the Beauty Killer, is still at large, and Archie has voluntarily committed himself to a psychiatric institute which he doesn't care to leave. The Beauty Kille...
This is the third Archie/Gretchen novel by Chelsea Cain that I have read. It seems that each one drops by half a star. This time, we do not focus on their relationship so I was a bit let down. The change in storyline is initially offputting even though it is still very well written.After my initi...
Für ich leider nicht so gut wie der Band davor. Viel zu wenig Gretchen!
