A strong addition to the Sunny Randall series
Published in 2007 by Putnam
Sunny joins with her retired cop father on a serial killer case that went unsolved 20 years before. It seems the killer has come back again after a hiatus and the elder Randall is chosen to head an all-star task force to catch him. Sunny is brought in as his assistant since she's a former cop and her father trusts her instincts.

Just to be clear, this is not a police procedural. The reader does not have to read through the drudgery of endless questioning of possible witnesses, etc. Sunny still acts as a private detective and the smart comments and witty dialogue prevail throughout.
Sunny makes a lot of progress with her psychologist (Susan Silverman) in this book and a great portion of it is about her numerous issues and the progress she makes towards resolving them. She makes so much progress that I wonder if this is the last Sunny Randall book. I hope not, because this one was a fast-paced, witty. welcome addition to Parker's lengthy list of books.
I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.
