Image of Pitch Black: A Black CATs Novel

The second installment of Parrish's back-to-back thrillers employs a killer who is clever and remorseless but refrains from striking the killing blow. All of the Black CATs have baggage or attitude issues, which gives Parrish plenty to work with. Elegantly woven plots, filled with action and psychological drama, make this dynamic series mesmerizing.

After nearly dying during a case gone bad and becoming persona non grata, former FBI profiler Alec Lambert takes a job with Wyatt Blackstone's FBI cyber crime unit. Ironically, the first case Alec is handed involves the same serial killer his old unit has been hunting for years. The Professor, who places his victims in mortal peril and then watches them die, is now using Internet schemes to hunt down vulnerable and gullible victims. Reclusive Internet scam expert Samantha Dalton may provide a link to the cold-blooded killer. She has unwittingly become his obsession. (SIGNET ECLIPSE, Aug., 368 pp., $7.99)
