About this product
- DescriptionSomeone is killing women in Manhattan -- but, who? The only clues: a signature heart carved into each victim's breast (inside are the initials J.C. and those of the deceased); copies of the New Testament (with underlined passages referring to infidelity); and fingerprints of a juvenile arrested in the 1960s. Enter Matt Davis, a plodding but effective NYPD homicide detective (hopelessly addicted to fly fishing - and chocolate) and his one-quarter Mohawk Indian partner, Chris Freitag, to whom he owes a long-standing debt of gratitude. Complicating matters for both of them is Rita Valdez, a spicy hot female detective, looking for true love, and t too particular about where she finds it. As the Twig is Bent is an explosive thriller that rips the cover off the sordid underbelly of the world of Internet chat rooms, and propels the reader on a -holds-barred journey toward its bone-chilling conclusion. CAUTION: Contains sexually explicit language, inappropriate for some readers.
