“Rage against the Dying” by Becky Masterman
Review by Gene Schinto
Former FBI agent Brigid Quinn is newly married to a retired college professor. Their marital bliss is put on hold when a man confesses to the Tucson, Ariz. police to being the long-sought serial killer whose victims include Brigid’s young protégé Jessica.
