Madison Square Murders
Memento Mori: Book One


Everett Larkin works for the Cold Case Squad: an elite—if understaffed and overworked—group of detectives who solve the forgotten deaths of New York City. Larkin is different from others, but his deduction skills are unmatched and memory for minute details unparalleled.

So when a spring thunderstorm uproots a tree in Madison Square Park, unearthing a crate with human remains inside, the best Cold Case detective is assigned the job. And when a death mask, similar to those from the Victorian era, is found with the body, Larkin requests assistance from a detective his polar opposite in every possible way: Ira Doyle of the Forensic Artist Unit.

Reasoning and facial reconstruction puts Larkin and Doyle on a trail of missing persons and a killer obsessed with casting his victims’ likeness in death, only now it seems as if he’s never stopped. Add Doyle’s unapologetic flirting into the mix, and this already dangerous case might finally be the one Larkin doesn’t survive
