by Jonathan Kellerman
A woman's body is found in marshland outside LA, not long dead. By the next morning the police have discovered the decaying corpses of three more women there's no telling how long they've been there. The murdered women were prostitutes except for the most recent victim; a classically trained pianist employed by a wealthy family to tutor a musical prodigy, Selena Bass seems out of place in the marsh's grim tableau. Psychologist Alex Delaware is drafted in by homicide detective Milo Sturgis to help with the case. Bizarre details of the crimes suggest a devilish serial killer is prowling LA's gritty streets. But when a new murder deviates from the pattern, derailing a possible profile, Alex and Milo must look beyond the suspicion of madness and consider an even more sinister mind at work. There are no easy answers, for the darkest of drives and desires will fuel the most devious of foes.

She does slip out at night_but nothing is as supposed. Crispin's client is found murdered at home (in a locked room) and the wife is accused of the deed. So she hires her husband's spy. Westerson's wish is to marry the hardboiled detective to the medieval mystery.
