A serial killer has murdered three prostitutes, marking each body with a brand in the shape of a cross. Detroit Police have only one clue--the killer wears a clerical collar. In Kienzle's tenth police procedural featuring amateur detective Father Robert Koesler, the Catholic priest agrees to help police see past their religious reverence and deal with a possible renegade cleric. Unfortunately, the author almost topples the suspense with detail overload. But narrator Edward Holland, who's read all 10 Kienzle mysteries, uses his voice to build anticipation and create a tension-filled atmosphere. His male voice also successfully creates the ambiance of a seedy inner-city in midwinter. This is a must-hear for lovers of puzzles with tiny pieces that finally come together in a satisfying whole.
