A Frank Quinn Novel Series : Titles in Order

Book 6
The killer becomes the hunted.

She was gagged. Violated. Tortured. Nailing the killer is priority number one and only the best will do-that means Frank Quinn. And Quinn wouldn’t want it any other way. Because he recognizes the victim. Years ago, as a homicide detective, he saved her young life. Now the hunt is on, and deep in his gut, Quinn welcomes it. He knows he’s seeing the work of a truly twisted serial killer. Except it’s not the ritual weapon that makes this killer so disturbing. It’s who he kills-and how he makes them suffer…
Book 5
He mutilates his victims. Slices their throats. And carves an X into their flesh. Five years ago, he claimed the lives of six women. Then the killings abruptly stopped – no one knows why. Ex-homicide detective Frank Quinn remembers. Which is why he’s shocked to see one of the dead women in his office. Actually, she’s the identical twin of the last victim, and she wants Quinn to find her sister’s murderer. But when the cold case heats up, it attracts the media spotlight – and suddenly the killings start again…
Book 2
Frank Quinn, the relentless detective who made his debut in John Lutz’s acclaimed thriller Darker Than Night, faces his toughest –and most personal–case yet . . .

An invitation written in blood . . . A madman is stalking women in the city. By the time his victims are found, they’ve been dismembered with careful precision, their limbs stacked into a gruesome pyramid and completely cleansed of every last drop of blood.

To catch a killer–or die next . . . Accustomed to working on the most grisly homicides, detective Frank Quinn’s nerves don’t rattle easily. But when the last names of the killer’s victims spell out “Q-u-i-n-n,” the veteran cop feels a chill run down his spine. Then a fresh victim is linked to the one woman Quinn can’t stop desiring. Hunting down killers is what Quinn does best. But this time, Quinn is up against a psychopath that will test him as never before . . .
Book 1
Ex-homicide cop Frank Quinn is still reeling in the wake of an elaborate setup that ended his career, but a new case presents a chance to salvage his reputation. A killer dubbed “The Night Prowler” has begun terrorizing the citizens of New York City. Unseen, he enters couples’ homes. Unsuspected, he lingers until the perfect moment arrives to murder his victims. With the body count climbing, it’s up to Quinn to unlock the mystery of a madman’s past and end his bloody reign of terror. Quinn has his work cut out for him-because in the city of New York, any one of eight million faces could be that of a killer – or his next target.
