The attractive redhead at the A&P checkout counter opens her checkbook and begins writing a check, unaware that she’s signing her own death warrant. The man behind her in the dark overcoat memorizes the address on her check. When she leaves the A&P, he follows her home. In the next few weeks he tracks her every move…and when she rebuffs his advances, he stabs her.
Five women, chosen at random, fall victim to a man the press dubs the Hyena. The NYPD has no leads until young Babette Watson walks into homicide detective Max Segal’s office. She tells him she’s had disturbing visions of all the crimes before they happened. Dubious, Max takes a chance in believing the pretty psychic, and it isn’t long before they’re on the Hyena’s trail. But the Hyena knows they’re tracking him, and it won’t be long before he strikes.
Like Fear Itself and Exes, Dan Greenburg’s other bestselling thrillers, Love Kills is a terrifyingly realistic, darkly humorous, startlingly sexual, street-tough page-turner with a surprising climax.
