Die for MeeBook - 2007
Vito Ciccotelli has been a homicide detective for six years and he's used to solving difficult cases. But he's never before seen a killer like this one. The first body they find is a beautiful young woman, brutally murdered, her nude body left in an unmarked grave in an open field, her hands permanently folded in what looks to be prayer. But this young woman isn't the only one. As days pass, the bodies keep appearing, one by one and Vito knows they are dealing with a particularly vicious criminal mind. Little does he know reality is far worse than he could ever have imagined. For Munch, the serial killer, needs "models" to act out the brutal video games he creates and he will do anything necessary to get it. And the one thing he has ensured is that no one hears his victims scream. Sophie Johannson is an archeologist and a museum curator whose specialty is medieval warfare. Brought on the case for her expertise, she becomes interested in the puzzle of the killer and his use of ancient weapons and torture devices. Vito and she are instantly attracted to each other, though their pasts keep them from getting too close. And as Sophie digs further, the killer sets his sights on her.
