Crucifying Angel by P.I. Barrington

Book Description
A serial killer with an unholy mission is unleashed on deteriorating sin city Las Vegas and LVPD Homicide Detectives Payce Halligan and her new partner, British ex-Deputy Chief Inspector begin a deadly cat and mouse game as each must deal with their own traumatic past and their evolving attraction.

My Thoughts
This was a good read. Payce is a LA Detective whose got a troubled past. Gavin is a former British Chief Inspector with a past as dark as Payce's and he is her new partner. They are investigating suspicious murders when terrible things start happening. They are thrust together in a series of twisted characters, scary turns and terrifying possibilities.
I really liked Payce. She is a strong, independent cop with a vulnerability that she hates to show people. I adore Gavin, you can just hear his accent through the pages! There were several twists and turns, plenty of suspense and psychos to fill the pages. The murder scenes described are creepy and all too real! The support characters are well written and very good. Very addicting!
I give this book a 4/5. It was a suspenseful, adult read that leaves you ready for book 2 in the series.
