One Man's Obsession. . .Pharmacy clerk William Dremmel is hooked--on drugging pretty young women and lulling them into slow, blissfully quiet deaths. Then he packs his victims in luggage--a nod to the cops that he works alone. Dremmel's no fool, he's also a college professor. He just likes using his intellect for darker purposes. . ..Is Another Man's Anguish. . .Haunted by his own daughter's unsolved disappearance, Detective John Stallings is committed to finding runaways and busting their abductors. When a series of girls is found dead and stuffed into duffle bags, he's consumed with capturing The Bagman--at the risk of his marriage, his career, and possibly his tough-as-nails partner, Patty Levine. . .And Neither Intends To Give UpAs The Bagman grows more brazen in his crimes, the clues line up. But when he draws terrifyingly close to Patty, Stallings is determined to play by his own rules--and they won't be pretty--or quiet. . . James Andrus is a career law enforcement officer who still works major investigations. He has been involved in real serial crime cases, which formed the basis for some of this novel. He has been featured on network news shows and been recognized for his law enforcement achievements. Andrus lives in the Southeast United States with his family, dividing his time between police work and writing.One of the best cop novels to come along in years.

Review: The Perfect Woman (Detective John Stallings #1)

User Review  - Kim Mead - Goodreads

A little tedious at the end, but I couldn't put it down. My only complaint is it could have been a little more suspenseful, you know who the killer is the whole time and could see what was going to happen. Otherwise it was a great story. Read full review
