Manhattan Mysteries #2: Evil Justice
Anna Winthrop’s desire to solve crimes leads her to secret places in New York City.
Terror grips Manhattan as the Ankh Killer leaves a trail of strangled, mutilated women across the city. Then sanitation supervisor Anna Winthrop discovers the killer’s latest victim in the garage where she supervises and it’s cute and coquettish Shari Baird, a member of Anna’s crew. A guy was seen running from Shari’s body and it turns out it’s Tommy Mulligan, Anna’s most productive worker. He’s arrested and thrown into a cell on Riker’s Island. When Tommy’s father begs Anna to help prove that Tommy is innocent, Anna reluctantly agrees to try to help. With the help of her boyfriend, sexy midtown copy Santos Reyes, Anna rushes to uncover the truth before the real Ankh Killer can snatch another woman from the streets.

***** 5 stars “I really enjoy Anna's grit; even though the author is a man his portrayal of Anna is spot on.” —Sonja, Goodreads
**** 4 stars “This is the second book of "The Hidden Manhattan Mysteries" by Evan Marshall. I generally don't read mysteries by male authors because they aren't normally cozies. However this one came in a book shipment that I get from Reader Service so I read it (even though I generally like reading series in order). Much to my surprise it was a cozy and a good one at that.” —Denise, Goodreads
