August 2005.
Amid death and destruction, hurricane-savaged New Orleans has a new dark force to fear.

As the rescue efforts unfold, a grisly discovery is made at one of the massive refrigerator “graveyards.” One of these metal hulks contains six human hands - all female, all right hands. The press has dubbed the unknown perpetrator “The Handyman.” But with no way to trace the origin of this refrigerator, and with evidence lost to time and the elements, the case dead-ends.

Captain Patti O’Shay is a straight-arrow, by-the-book cop who is assigned to the case. Her tough, unflinching character is fractured when her husband and fellow police captain is found murdered - surprised by looters taking advantage of the post-storm chaos.

August 2007
Patti, still grieving and disillusioned, gets a call from homicide: skeletal remains have been unearthed in City Park. The unknown victim - a female - is missing her right hand. But for Patti, this grave holds something even more shocking. Found beside the victim’s bones is her husband’s police badge.

Casting aside the very “rule book” by which she has lived her life, Patti is fearless - but so is the killer. As he stalks her she is forced to question all she believes in, to doubt the code she has lived by…because she knows that if she doesn’t find The Handyman first, she will become his last known victim.

    " A great suspense thriller in Post-Katrina New Orleans with drama, action and intrigue. While Louisiana tries to restore itself from Hurricane Katrina, someone uses the destruction from the hurricane as a perfect crime scene. When Captain Patty O'Shay and the NOPD are on the scene, they discover one of the huge fridges in a graveyard. When they open it inside, they're shocked to find a pair of woman's hands. This chills them to the bone. But what's mostly disturbing, after they get a call in City Park, is that they found the dead body with her husband's police badge at the scene. Someone's sending her a message, which could be more than personal than professional. And it's up to Patti to figure out the "Handyman's" cryptic message, before she's next on his list. "

    " was really good. took me only 5 days to read it, it was so good. couldnt put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 1/19/2014

    " Erica Spindler is probably my favorite mystery/suspense author. Her stories generally have me on the edge of my seat and this one was the same. I actually figured out who the killer was about half way through but the story line kept me second-guessing myself until the end. I like that she keeps the police aspect of it more realistic than some other mysteries and there's nothing ridiculous about procedures or how one event leads to another. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 5/9/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shannon Sansom | 3/9/2012

    " This is the first Spindler book I've read. I didn't like her style as well as some other mystery writers I like. I figured out the killer, but not until right before Patti did. Others have reviewed her books well,so maybe I'll find another and give her another chance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daelith | 11/30/2011

    " It was okay--I don't think it's an actual series, but it sort of follows the Malone family a little so I kinda felt I was missing something. Kept feeling like an outsider looking in. "
