The Rainy Day Killer  A man in a business suit offers the protection of his umbrella to an unsuspecting woman ... and several days later she turns up dead on a river bank, raped and strangled. The terrifying serial killer known in the press as the Rainy Day Killer is now hunting new victims in the city of Glendale ... whenever it rains.

Homicide Lieutenant Hank Donaghue leads the investigation as the killer begins to communicate directly to him through phone calls and grisly packages containing body parts of his victims. Assisted by FBI profiler Ed Griffin, Donaghue and Detective Karen Stainer pursue an elusive predator who leaves no physical evidence behind.

The timing couldn't be worse, however, as Karen Stainer's attention is divided between the investigation and preparations for her upcoming wedding. Distracted and uncertain about her future, Stainer is furious when she learns that the Rainy Day Killer has followed her to Virginia, where the wedding will take place, and that he intends to make her his next victim!

This book is about a serial killer who only kills when it rains and when the body shows up there is very little evidence. The killer starts communicating with the lead investigator who is also dealing with a new temporary boss who is wanting to micro manage everything and he still needs to have the investigation run its course. The lead detective is getting married soon and though she is not doing the planning she is still required to show up at different times to make it appear that she is wanting this marriage. The murder is interrupting her soon to be mother in law new plans. There is a lot of things going on in this story and I like that the author made each character different and unique and that there is friction when a new boss comes in, even though it is temporary. You can see who they feel self-conscious because he has a better understanding of the job and the people working for them. The story is fast paced but has some funny moments also. I enjoyed this book a lot. A good read. I got this book from net galley.
