"Still recovering from injuries sustained in her last murder investigation, reporter Irene Kelly dutifully hobbles back to work, only to get lured into another case of murder and mayhem. On her very first day back, Irene is "welcomed" by a threatening bit of fan mail from someone who calls himself "Thanatos" - the ancient Greek name for "Death." Though Irene shrugs it off as a prank, she soon learns to take Thanatos at his word." "As Thanatos' letters keep coming, each cleverly wrapped in mythological puzzles, the bodies mount - as does the tension in southern California's beach community of Las Piernas. Unwilling to be a pawn in a killer's deadly game, Irene Kelly knows she must take action." "Taunted by phone calls and deadly threats from a killer known only to her as Thanatos, Irene ignores warnings from her worried fiance, homicide detective Frank Harriman, and embarks on her most dangerous case yet. As Irene unravels the clues to the case - each one embedded in ancient riddles and mythic puzzles - Thanatos watches her every move with a fascination that brings him too close for comfort. Yet Irene will stop at nothing to unveil the true identity of this genius of death, even if it means playing into the hands of a killer who is determined to make her part of his deadly destiny."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
