Title: Sweetheart

Author: Chelsea Cain

Publisher: St. Martin's Press

Copyright: 2008

ISBN: 978-0-312-36847-0

Series or stand-alone: #2

Setting: Portland, OR

1st Sentence:

Forest Park was pretty in the summer.


The body of a woman is found in the park and it reminds Archie of his first case, the first victim of the Beauty Killer, Gretchen Lowell. Of course, it can't be her, because Gretchen is in prison, but along with Susan Ward, a newspaper journalist, they discover the identity which turns into another big case. Then Gretchen escapes, and Archie knows he is the only one who can stop her for good.

This book was another thrilling ride, but not for the weak of heart. One of my FB friends posted the question on his profile lately: Which fictional character would you least likely want as a boyfriend/girlfriend? My answer is Gretchen Lowell.
