Frank Devlin. Love in All the Wrong Places (2004) 256 pp.
Helen and Henry meet in a bar and after some small talk he takes her
home. In the middle of the sexual encounter, Helen takes a knife and puts
it through his heart. She didnít go to the bar for a pick-up; she went
there to find a man who would hit on her so she could kill him. The police
donít give the case very much attention, figuring the woman knifed Henry
because he was raping her. Not long afterward another man Helen meets in
a bar gets killed in a car wash. San Francisco Police Department Inspector
Rose Burke doesnít link these two murders until a third body is discovered
in Golden Gate Park with evidence from the first homicide. Rose assumes
they have a serial murderer on their hands. Helenís boyfriend Jimmy is
her partner in crime and helps her with some of the killings. After a thorough
investigation Rose and her partner zero in on the two suspects, but getting
them to surrender will prove to be an impossible task.
