Pattern of Violence Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Pattern of Violence

Top-notch homicide detective and single mom, Maria Sanchez, is about to face her most formidable foe. A serial killer is wreaking havoc in the streets of Minneapolis--abducting, torturing, and killing his victims; children of the community.

Dubbed the "River Rat" by the media because his victims are always found floating in the Mississippi River, this maniac is on a mission. Maria and her partner Joe have a deadline to meet and need to do it before he strikes again.

Then Theresa doesn't come home from school one day… Detective Sanchez is in for the fight for her life and that of her only child when she accidentally encounters the killer's lair where her daughter is being held. Everything comes crashing down around her as her own fate, and that of her only child, is ultimately determined by the dead bodies surrounding her…and the gun pointed at her chest.
