When the body of a young woman is discovered in Portland's Forest Park, Archie is reminded of the last time they found a body there: it turned out to be the Beauty Killer's first victim, and Archie's first case. Trouble is, Archie can't focus on the new investigation because the Beauty Killer case has exploded: Gretchen Lowell has escaped from prison.I knew Gretchen was going to be back, but yippee! So is Archie! Gah, is it September yet?
Archie hadn't seen her in two months; he'd moved back in with his family and sworn off his obsession with her. Though it should feel like progress, he actually feels worse. The news of her escape spreads like wildfire, but secretly, Archie is relieved. He knows he's the only one who can catch her, and in fact, he has a plan to get out from under her thumb once and for all.

Houston, We Have A Plot!
About the only thing I love more than shiny, crisp, brand-new books is publisher catalogs - and I see quite a bit of both thanks to work. Thank sweet baby Jesus for the fine folks at St. Martin's Minotaur because their new catalog means I (and you) now have a plot description for Chelsea Cain's September release, Sweetheart.
