The Stranger You Seek, by Amanda Kyle Williams

This is a strong, well-written book, but it is so, so not for me. This first book in a mystery/suspense series by Atlanta author Williams has lots going for it. Its Atlanta setting is immersive (you can feel the Georgia heat)and it really establishes the city as a second character. And our terrific heroine, private eye Keye Street, is an Asian-American Southerner – tiny but tough, and brainy but fighting her own demons. But the hunt for a twisted serial killer is seriously disturbing, and while I’d love to have drinks with Keye, I can’t hang out in her books.
