Rhode Island Detective Danny Martell hunts for a serial killer who dresses up his victims as angels, but the stakes rise dramatically when his wife Linda disappears.

Angel Wings, by Howard Kaminsky

Angel Wings is a top-notch thriller, original, sharp, tough, smart, suspenseful and full of surprises, in which a tough guy cop and the most original and intriguing serial killer since Hannibal Lecter fight it out in a book which reads like a classic vintage noir novel. -- Michael Korda
As a veteran member of the Providence police department's elite homicide squad, Detective Danny Martell has seen his fair share of dead bodies. But he's never seen anything quite like this. Women around the city are being brutally murdered, their dead faces elaborately made up and fabric angel wings attached to their lifeless bodies. The attacks are immediately dubbed "the Angel Murders"-yet it doesn't take long for the deadly crime wave to drag Danny into his own personal hell…
Because soon after the killings begin, Danny's wife, Linda, abruptly disappears. And when his worst fears are realized, a grief-stricken Danny redoubles his efforts to hunt down the deranged serial killer. But is Linda just another random "angel"? Or is she the victim of a copycat killer with a vendetta against Danny?
Gritty, suspenseful, and fiendishly fascinating, this chilling whodunit will keep readers guessing right alongside Danny-and on the very edge of their seats until the final page is turned.
