Serial killer detective novel set in Phoenix - worth a look

The Beholder - David      Bishop

Serial killer detective novel set in Phoenix. The main protagonist is Maggie Richards, a detective sergeant, given responsibility of cases of murder with body mutilations involved.  The eventual killer comes as a bit of a surprise (although i had my suspicions) - and not totally believable in my opinion.

A good police procedural, fairly bog-standard but enjoyable and entertaining nonetheless. Engaging and generally well-written - some interesting similes and metaphors make the writing a little unconventional at times.
