If you see him you will not know him. If you greet him, it may be too late. For every image you have of a murderer--he will defy it. And he will make you pay . . . COOKIE CUTTER For the Shaw family, the nightmare begins in a small, ranch-style house outside a dusty Alabama town. A black man in his late twenties. A white woman in her teens. And an unborn baby, about to emerge into a scene of horrific, fear-driven violence. Thirty years later, the crime committed in Alabama resurfaces in the Motor City--and detective Mary Cunningham is spearheading the investigation. Haunted by the demons of her past, and by the painful choices she has made as a black professional woman on her way to the top, Mary knows she is not searching for just another loser with a knife. The man she is looking for is smart, plotting his murders with cool precision and leaving behind one taunting clue: a single cookie, black on the outside and white inside, pressed into his victims' hands. Then Mary and her fellow detectives get their break and come face-to-face with the murderer. But Mary can never guess the twisted history that is driving her suspect, or how his political connections will affect the case, or why she herself could be his next, perfect prey. A work of stunning psychological suspense featuring one of the most complex villains in recent literature, Cookie Cutter is more than a compelling thriller. It is also a gritty, passionate tale of family and lovers, crime and politics, and the black experience in America--on both sides of the law.
