A deadly game of cat and mouse. A wish list for murder. One person stands in the way.

When the body of a young woman sparks a manhunt on the streets of Bristol, striking similarities to another murder suggest there is only one detective for the job—old-school maverick DI Robbie Chilcott.

But after the investigation deepens and the body count rises, realisation dawns that Chilcott is hunting a systematic and lethal adversary.

As a pattern to the killer’s chilling purpose takes shape, Chilcott establishes a shocking truth—the victims aren’t random—they have been chosen for who they are.

I have the worst boss in New York City.

And I am sick and tired of breaking his dates, picking up his dry cleaning, doing his job for him; and recently, he hit an all-time low when he disrupted my beauty sleep so that I could bring him cold water while he jogged through my neighborhood. I didn’t think he paid attention enough to know where I lived!

I will take some accountability here. After all, there’s a method to this man’s madness.

My boss’s name is Orion Lord. And when Orion asks me to shoot for the moon on his behalf, he’s never a jerk about it. He does it while seducing me with his spellbinding smirk and hypnotizing me with his sultry eyes.

History of U.S. Immigration

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, two million Jewish immigrants poured into America, leaving places like Warsaw or the Russian shtetls to pass through Ellis Island and start over in the New World. This is a “brilliant” account of their stories (The New York Times).

Though some moved on to Philadelphia, Chicago, and other points west, many of these new citizens settled in New York City, especially in Manhattan’s teeming tenements. Like others before and after, they struggled to hold on to the culture and community they brought from their homelands, all the while striving to escape oppression and find opportunity. They faced poverty and crime, but also experienced the excitement of freedom and previously unimaginable possibilities. Over the course of decades, from the 1880s to the 1920s, they were assimilated into the great melting pot as the Yiddish language slowly gave way to English; work was found in sweatshops; children were sent to both religious and secular schools; and, for the lucky ones, the American dream was attained—if not in the first generation, then by the second or third.
