From Amazon:

When a young red-haired woman is found brutally murdered in downtown Chicago, one detail stands out: the red lipstick encircling her wrists and ankles.

Detective Harriet Foster is on the case, even though she’s still grieving the sudden death of her partner. As a Black woman in a male-dominated department, Foster anticipates a rocky road ahead acclimating to a new team—and building trust with her new partner isn’t coming easily.

After another victim turns up with the same lipstick markings, Foster suspects she’s looking for a serial killer. Through a tip from a psychiatrist, Foster learns about Bodie Morgan: a troubled man with a twisted past and a penchant for pretty young redheads with the bluest eyes. As Foster wades into Morgan’s sinister history, the killer continues their gruesome assault on Chicago’s streets.

In her desperate race to catch the murderer before they strike again, Foster will have to confront the darkest of secrets—including her own.


Trigger warning for the first page, if you have and/or are recovering from an eating disorder there is a large amount of talk about weight and restrictive eating, but you could skip it and not miss anything from the story. There is another mention of weight with the main character stating they’ve lost 15 pounds due to the stress she’s going through a little later in the book.

Another trigger warning for the whole book, as the main character, Detective Harriet Foster, is coming back to work after taking time off following the suicide of her partner. It’s mentioned from time to time.

Overall, a good story. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing who the killers are.

A little disappointed that the next book isn’t out yet, but I give this 4 toads
