About This Item

St. Martin's Minotaur. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. 031229056x . Excellent condition. Hardcover is clean and tight, unmarked other than a tiny (dot) remainder mark bottom edge. Jacket has light scuffing and very light wear at corners, price sticker on rear. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 224 pages; Review: "Sheriff Milt Kovak of Prophesy County, Oklahoma, gets a call from former lover Laura, whose son has disappeared with his girlfriend, Amanda. Kovak's inquiries lead him to the local headquarters of a religious sect known as the Seven Trumpets. Kovak is uncomfortable; all the women are pregnant, and the two sect leaders are two very contented--and evasive--men. Then Amanda's naked, lifeless body is found at a remote location of the sprawling compound. The investigation focuses on the religious sect and its unsavory leaders, but Kovak can't make any sort of a forensic case against them. Using the time-tested investigatory technique of thrashing about until something breaks loose, Kovak subsequently alienates his wife, his former lover, and a distraught community before he unmasks the killer. The eighth entry in the Kovak series is carefully plotted and cleverly resolved. But the series' success rests squarely on the likable shoulders of Kovak, who understands the criminal mind far better than he understands the women in his life. Settle in and enjoy." [383-noto] .
