Death's Angel by George A. Bernstein , Book Review,
The second serial killer in less than a year is prowling the streets of Miami, systematically killing off some of South Florida's most beautiful young women. Detective Al Warner is just back on The Job, fully recovered from a bullet wound, glancing off his head after a deadly chance encounter with another madman.
Warner is in the best shape of his life, but his days are laced with headaches and his sleep fraught with terrifying dreams. Lack of rest clouds his usually laser-sharp mind but doesn’t slow his ingle-minded hunt for this new killer.
Angie Dedios is a magnetic man, seducing stunning young women who posed nude for men's magazines. He "redeems" them for their "sins"in the name of God, brutally strangling them as they complete sex, intoning "the Lord Calls."
Warner and the FBI’s BAU become more frustrated as each new death provides plenty of evidence it’s the same Unsub, but no new clues to his identity. They learn the killers name, and realizes it’s really Angel de Dios… the Angel of God... but they are helpless as more beauties dies with no new leads as to his real identity. Then Warner’s love, Sharon Clark, becomes a target for this mad man, and Warner must stop him before she is his 8th victim. Only chance again brings them all together in one final deadly dance of terror.
Death's Angel is the first of my Al Warner series. He's an unusual blend of compassion and a hard-nosed, no nonsense cop, with a complicated personal life, some what in the vein of Patterson's ALEX CROSS. Enjoy the novel, and the character, because there's more to come. The 2nd Warner novel will be published in early 2015.
Detective Al Warner is working again after he has been shot and has recovered. There is a killer going after women in South Florida and he is trying to solve these crimes. It is not easy because he has not been sleeping and he has been getting headaches. The name of the killer is finally figured out but, they unable to identify his identity and his real name. Warner has to hurry up and find out who the killer is before he tries to kill his girl friend and make her the next on his list. This book is full of action and suspense. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review and these are all my opinions.
