MATTERS OF THE HEAD
Life was good for Detective John Coffin--he'd earned a promotion and had just moved into a new home in the tower of a renovated church-turned-theater. True, he now headed his own force and was no longer a street detective, but his business was still crime and there was plenty in the Docklands.
And then a severed human head was found in an urn on the church steps. A hand turned up in a freezer upstairs. It was one of those cases that stretched out long fingers to touch many lives... or, rather, deaths--namely the bodies of women buried under a museum of infamous criminals. At least one of whom was alive and well and doing his job with deadly precision.
