“Suspenseful . . . almost impossible to put down.”—Sacramento Union
In the city of the Red Sox and the Red Line someone is leaving roses—red ones, of course—on the bodies of women he kills. For a psychologist named Susan Silverman and a P.I. named Spenser, the case is personal. But Spenser knows it's the wrong man. Because the right one has come calling on Susan—with a red rose in hand.
“A novel worth reading with an ending that is worth waiting for.”—South Bend Tribune

Spenser joins Lieutenant Quirk and Sergeant Belson in pursuing a serial killer of Black women and their investigation points to one of Susan's patients
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Spenser, Hawk, Quirk, and Belson join forces to catch a serial killer. His targets are all 40-ish black women, bound, gagged, and shot. A single red rose left on each body earns him the title Red Rose Killer. After seeking professional advice from psychologist Dr. Susan Silverman, it is soon evident that the killer is one of her patients. When it seems his next target may very well be Susan, the significant other of Spenser, the course of action pits Spenser's and Susan's professional ethics against one another. After much give and take, they begin to understand how the other's strength complements their weaknesses. After much foot work, surveillance, and round-the-clock protection, Spenser gets his man.
