Overview
Mark Tartaglia of the London murder squad investigates a bizarre and brutal series of murders in this gripping thriller the fourth in this bestselling series by Elena Forbes. Detective Inspector Mark Tartaglia has spent the night in a west London hotel with a woman he has just met. When he is called to the same hotel the next morning to investigate a murder, he realizes it must have taken place while he was there. The investigation takes a horrifying turn when he recognizes the young female victim. Still reeling from shock, he learns that another case he has been investigating the body of a homeless man found in a burnt-out car is also not what it seems. Tests reveal the corpse has been assembled from the body parts of four different people. Under mounting pressure from the media and unsure where his loyalties lie, Tartaglia must solve this macabre puzzle before the Jigsaw Killer strikes again."

Forbes (Die with Me) begins the fourth Det. Insp. Mark Tartagli mystery early one morning when a fellow detective awakens Mark, who's still hungover, and sends him to a murder scene at a hotel in London's West Endthe same hotel Mark left only hours before, following a tryst with a woman he met there that night. His relief that the victim was not that same woman quickly turns to horror when he realizes that the victim is the sister of a former colleague of his, Samantha Donovan. Judged to be too close to the case, Mark is instead assigned to investigate the case of a body found burned in the trunk of a car, which turns out to be parts of four different bodies sewn together. Mark continues to unofficially investigate the murder of Samantha's sister, but Forbes does not handle the split focus between the two cases well, and leaves the titular "jigsaw" murder underdeveloped. The introduction of several characters in quick succession makes this mystery hard to follow at times. Readers familiar with characters from previous books in the series will be better equipped, particularly with more insight into the ambiguous relationship between Samantha and the unapologetically single Mark. Agent: Sarah Lutyens, Lutyens and Rubinstein (U.K.). (Feb.)
