In Plain Sight by M.A. Comley
A gripping serial killer thriller from a NY Times & USA Today best-selling author
No one is safe... not even the police. DI Hero Nelson is used to violent crime but this one is personal. When he's called to a crime scene he discovers the victims are two police officers one of whom is a good friend.
Determined to track down the killer, he’s dealt another blow as the body count continues to rise. To catch the killer before he strikes again, Hero calls upon the public for help. But when the criminal ups the ante by taking hostages, he soon regrets his actions.
Can Hero and the police catch the murderer before more innocent victims are hurt?
Hero must apprehend a killer who is hiding in plain sight before the time runs out.
This is the first of the Hero Nelson series I have read but is not the first in the series. Initially I was a little put off by the name of the hero being Hero, however, what's in a name? I think Colin Dexter didn't lose anything by giving his Inspector Morse the first name of Endeavour. Once I got into the story, I soon got over myself and found Hero to be a very credible character and I even began to think that his dodgy name suited him. The bad guy Bob Myers (normal name there) to describe him as ruthless, merciless killer doesn't even cut it. He gunned down whoever got in his way and therefore the police were no threat to him. I would highly recommend to anyone who loves the crime fiction genre this superbly written fast paced thriller as one not to miss.
