By Alafair Burke

Harper, Mass Market Paperback, 9780061561245, 368pp.

Publication Date: June 1, 2009


In a city full of victims . . . it's hard to choose just one.

Indiana college student Chelsea Hart's wild evening with affluent young party boys in an elite Manhattan club was the most exhilarating and glamorous night of her life. It was also the last.

Now NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher's obsessive hunt for the co-ed's killer--the only chance to save the next victim--is placing her directly in the sights of a psychopath.

Praise For Angel's Tip

“Gripping…. Burke leaves her principle characters little time to sleep; readers will relate.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[Burke] scores on all counts in this thriller about a serial killer with a hair fetish.... [Her] brisk and ultimately suspenseful narrative offers wily and intricate plotting and sharply etched major and minor characters.”
-Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

“Angel’s Tip is a riveting read that snaps with the beat of New York. Be prepared for a knuckle-biting journey that’ll keep you turning pages until the very end.”
-Faye Kellerman

“Alafair Burke has created a winning heroine in Ellie Hatcher, someone to root for not only in this book, but I hope in many more tales as yet untold.”
-Tami Hoag

“Addictive. …Holds the readers attention from first word to last, and begs for a sequel.”
-Kirkus Reviews on Dead Connection

“Alafair Burke is one of those rare writers whose books are both scary and cerebral. Complex plotting, multi-layered characters, a creepy serial killer - in Angel’s Tip, Burke has once again proven herself a terrific storyteller.”
