How You Loved Me (The Whispers in Their Eyes Book 1) by Allan Stuppard
From the dark past of a beguiling girl in a vintage poodle skirt, to a sinister stepfather, to an enthusiastic and intuitive detective who’s out to solve her first big case, fear claws at the doors and walls in this after-dark story of terror. Detective Arizona Stewart is a beautiful red-headed sleuth with a talent for reading others and a dark past and secrets of her own. She’s assigned to a case in which a serial killer stalks young girls who dress in 1950’s clothing. The latest victim is a young college girl who looks like Marilyn Monroe, last seen at a 50’s dance fundraiser. Arizona begins her quest for the truth, and soon she is partnered with Graham, a handsome private investigator like herself with a questionable dark side. Arizona and Graham track the growing clues towards solving the identity of the perpetrator, all the while growing closer themselves. Who will be the murderer among them: the menacing boyfriend, the stepfather with questionable motives, or even Graham himself? A passionate, consuming romance is born within the midst of an ever-blossoming mystery: Who is the killer behind an old ghost legend, a vintage car, and a haunting love song from the past? And can Arizona really trust anyone but herself?
