Motive by Jonathan Kellerman
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
OK, I am totally bummed that two horses got turned into petfood and no one did anything to stop it.
Milo is bummed because the murder of Katherine Hennepin is unsolved. The murder is set up to look like a romantic tryst gone bad, but the ex-boyfriend has an iron clad alibi. He was out of town with numerous people willing to vouch for his whereabouts.
When a wealthy divorcee is murdered in the parking garage adjacent to her lawyer's office the two cases couldn't appear more different, until someone sets up a romantic meal for two in the victim's home.
Chasing down one improbable lead after the other things don't start to gel until after Alex finds the tattoo parlor where the majority of victims got inked and the owner describes the man who accompanied them. Racing to find Jens before he kills again, Milo and Alex arrive in time for a dramatic take down before Jens can claim another victim. Unfortunately it looks like his accomplice will walk.
