Until Proven GuiltyBook - 1993
"Kathryn Mackay lives life on the run: caring for her six-year-old daughter as a divorced mother, juggling several dozen cases in the district attorney's office, coping with the guff that a woman encounters in a male-dominated world. And now it's just gotten worse. The body by the shore is only the first - soon there's another, then a third. The political heat is rising." "The district attorney, Hal Benton, puts Mackay in charge of the investigation. Working with her is Dave Granz, the best inspector in the department. He's a maverick, impossible to control, and he used to be Mackay's lover. The press gets on her case, in the slick, charming person of TV newsman Ricardo Sanchez, who somehow knows more about the DA's office than any outsider should. Then comes the mind-hunter from the state capital - the guy trained in the FBI's techniques for developing psychological profiles of serial killers. Some cops and DAs deride them. Not Mackay. On this case, she knows she needs all the help she can get. But if there's one thing Mackay doesn't need, it's an expert as smart, good-looking, and available as Steve Giordano." "Soon the killer is on her case, too - sending cryptic, taunting notes, signing them with a drawing of a gingerbread man: "Run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man." And run Mackay does - through the false leads and the missed clues, through the gauntlet of media and political pressure, into the dark tunnels of the killer's brain and the fear that, as she is closing in on him, he is stalking his fourth victim: her."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
