Clean CutBook - 2003
He's upper-class with white-blond hair, and so GQ handsome that Finch, desperate for business one rainy evening on the streets of St. Paul, falls gratefully into his car. When he turns nasty and she begins to struggle, it's over fast. Homicide Detective Paris Murphy is called to the brutal murder scene. Paris knows Finch's beat and knows her story, and sad for the worn-out twenty-three-year-old hooker who was a beauty queen at fifteen, is determined to find her murderer. Paris likes to work alone, but this high-profile case requires a partner. She chooses Gabriel Nash, a longtime detective who talked her into police work. Gabe tries hard to protect her, as Paris, uncovering her suspect's connection to other unsolved crimes, throws herself headlong into the path of a psychopath who wants to have her and then kill her.
