So begins Gansky's gritty new novel, Wounds. Believe me, things are about to get a lot sweatier, as a serial killer stalks his prey and flexes his muscle throughout the San Diego area.
Carman Rainmondi is the lead detective on the case. She's smart as a whip and has an excellent supporting cast, but she's finding it hard to connect the dots in these bizarre murders--and the body count is rising.
A reclusive professor of theology with a traumatic secret may have some answers--if his fear doesn't get the best of him as his past comes back to haunt him.
Gansky makes quick work of pulling the reader into this sophisticated mystery thriller. I could not put it down! Best seller material.
Please read on for more information about WOUNDS, but be warned--if you read the first chapter, you will not rest until you've gotten yourself a copy of this book!

ABOUT THE BOOK
A man’s lifeless body is found in the fresh soil of San Diego’s botanical garden. Cause of death is asphyxiation, an easy call for the medical examiner. More mysterious, however, are the tiny drops of blood on the victim’s skin, resulting from hundreds of punctures.
A rabbi leaving his house for work expects a regular day at the synagogue. That quickly changes when he discovers a dead man on his front lawn, clearly beaten to death.
Motorcycle riders racing along the empty streets of an abandoned military base stumble across another man’s corpse, its skin revealing long, red-purple marks of a thrashing given with wood dowels.
The numbers mount. Each week another victim and another mysterious clue in a game of mass murder the police don’t want to lose. The solution rests with Dr. Ellis Poe, a religious professor who only wishes to be left alone with his books and classes.
But evil must be faced, and the choice is no longer his own.
