Overview

Profiler Sarah Armstrong knows what it's like to be in a sticky situation. But when megawealthy businessman Edward Lucas III is found murdered along with his mistress, their bodies posed in grotesque ways, Sarah quickly senses that this will be the deadliest case of her career.

While others focus on Lucas's estranged wife, Sarah hunts a suspect only she believes in. Yet nothing in her career prepared her for the horror of a young man who believes he has been sent from heaven to massacre innocent people.

When Sarah picks up the killer's elusive trail, the psychopath sets his sights on all she holds dear. Filled with pulse-pounding action, Singularity features a feisty, funny, and tough heroine and a truly creepy killer, as it races along to a chilling and unexpected climax.

In his Galveston beach house, someone murders affluent Houston businessman Edward Travis Lucas III and his apparent lover attorney Annmarie Knowles the killer placed the bodies in ritualistic way to maximize the scandal thius pointing elsewhere. Galveston and Houston Police Departments claim pieces of the investigation the Texas Rangers and the FBI also insist they have jurisdiction. In front of the media everyone is cooperative, but at the crime scene and elsewhere away from the spotlight, squabbling her begun. --- Recently widowed and single mom Texas Ranger profiler Lieutenant Sarah Armstrong works the case along side FBI profiler David Garrity neither accept the local department¿s theory that Lucas' wife, Priscilla killed both of them. Instead the two profilers believe a serial killer with a track record in Texas committed the homicides and disguised them to look like a crime of passion. They plan to prove their theory. --- This is a terrific Texas police procedural with the jurisdictional war kept in the background rising just enough to make for a strong investigation by the profilers. However, the key to this fine yet standard murder mystery is the grieving mother and daughter as each struggles with the recent death of the man in their lives and that in turn deepens the audience¿s understanding of the caring mother who uses work as a psychological defense mechanism because she cannot mourn her loss too openly at home her daughter needs her emotionally strong. Fans will enjoy Kathryn Casey's fine insightful tale. --- Harriet Klausner

Good story that kept me reading about a serial killer and the process of authorities and procedures to find him. The main character's personal story was all right and tied into the end. My only peeve is that the ending seemed rushed and though we understood why he killed from learning his background, there was no satisfactory personal closure between him and the main character for me.

This was a good mystery with likable characters. Had somewhat overdone theme: federal agent of some kind has a spouse who died and an amazing family cared for by a quirky but fun grandmother....

A prominent man and his mistress are murdered by what looks to Texas Ranger profiler Sarah Armstrong to be a serial killer, but the local detective on the case suspects the estranged wife hired a hitman. Now Lt. Armstrong has to prove her case and stop a killer while dealing with obstructionist allies and leaks to the press.This could have been edited better: the construction is a little loose, and several times the sentences don't make much sense. But it's a decent read.

Sarah Armstrong is a Texas Ranger, and the only one of the Rangers' criminal profilers. The Rangers work out of the Department of Public Safety, but they report directly to the governor. With a scandalous double murder on Galveston Island, Sarah's sent to the scene. A wealthy businessman has been shot, posed in bed with his dead mistress. Sarah is not happy with the local investigation, but she's even more unhappy when two powerful families go to war over the ramifications of the murders, and the FBI is called in. Sarah's late husband never liked Agent Scroggins, but the other agent, David Garrity, is a profiler who seems to understand Sarah's interpretation of the case.Two of the officers blame the new wealthy widow. But Sarah and David see the hand of a serial killer. They go off on their own tangent, and their investigation indicates there's someone out there who likes to pose his victims. They're convinced there is a ruthless killer who seems to strike throughout Texas. But, Sarah's fighting a losing battle with the Galveston local jurisdiction over the murders that started the entire case.Sarah Armstrong is an outstanding investigator, dedicated to her job. She's also a recent widow, whose husband died the previous year, and it's affecting her eleven-year-old daughter, Maggie. Sarah's frequent absences on cases take her away from her daughter. Fortunately, they live with Sarah's mother on a ranch, but a grandmother doesn't always make up for the absence of parents. And, this case could permanently separate her from her needy daughter.Casey's first novel is a fascinating police procedural. But, it's even more than that. Casey has created an intriguing character, with a complicated family life. The family issues add to the richness of this story. Singularity was a terrific debut. I can't wait to move on to Blood Lines.

Good read. Obvious from beginning the killer will end up capturing the people he does (don't want to let cat out of the bag) but I liked it. Will read more of her books.

I really liked this book because it was Texas Rangers instead of just regular police.
