Die for Me [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Die For Me" the 1st book in her Vartanian trilogy series by Karen Rose.


The first victim is found in a snow-covered Philadelphia field. Detective Vito Ciccotelli enlists the aid of archaeologist Sophie Johannsen to determine exactly what lies beneath the frozen ground. Despite years of unearthing things long buried, nothing can prepare Sophie for the matrix of graves dug with chilling precision. The victims buried there haunt her. But the empty graves terrify her - the killer isn't done yet.


He is cold and calculating, the master of a twisted game. Even with Vito and Sophie hot on his trail, he will not stop. One more empty grave must be filled, and one last scream must be heard - the scream of an archaeologist who is too close for comfort and too near to resist.

My Review:
When Detective Vito Ciccotellia and Detective Nick Lawrence find a young women's body posed and killed in by a religious ritual killing in a snow-covered Philadelphia field and find other massive graves in the field they believe a serial killer is on the loose.
They hire archaeologist Sophie Johannsen who uses ground penetrating equipment which unearths 16 graves some filled and some not filled yet.  As they investigate further they realized the killer is meting his own medieval torture on his victims before killing them.  Then he incorporates their scenes into a video game cut scenes which is quite realistic and gory.
