Title: Stalking Susan
Author: Julie Kramer
Series or stand-alone: #1
Setting: Minneapolis, MN
So the deal is this - any cop who tickets me for a moving violation gets an "attaboy" from the chief and a day off duty, off the books.
Riley is a reporter for Channel 3 in Minneapolis. When her friend (and news informant) Nick Garnett retires from the PD, he gives her the goods on some missing Susans - women named Susan who are found murdered on the same date in different years. She decides to look into it - and gets more than she bargained for. This book is a debut novel and one that I enjoyed greatly. The writing was good, the suspense taut, and an interesting look into TV news reporting.
