Blood Music by Jessie Prichard Hunter

First sentence:

"The air was very still."


"New York City is caught in the cold grip of a brutal serial killer. The victims are all young, blond women, savagely raped and murdered.

While ravaging his victims, the killer's mind whirls with symphonic images and raging desires--rarely giving thought to his loving wife and child.

Young, blond Zelly Wyche has a new baby, a dependable electrician husband, and a bright future. She, too, is petrified by the madness and unthinkable tragedy of the murders. While the serial killer's solve survivor and a victim's brother mount a desperate vigilante hunt for the 'Symphony Slasher,' a chill runs up Zelly's spine. She is beginning to wonder if the killer could be closer than she thinks.

But no. Impossible. She has to be dead wrong...." -- from the back cover

My thoughts:

This book was a compelling thriller that kept my attention throughout. I liked getting different character's voices such as the killer, the police and one of the victims.
