Description

When the body of a young women-the fifth to die in as many weeks-is found in a rain-soaked alley, the city is gripped with mortal fear. A mad killer known as the Rainlover walks among them, and no one, not even the police, knows when he will strike again.

But Detective Sergeant Nick Miller has more than the Rainlover on his mind-like boxer-turned-expert-cat-burglar Gunner Sean Doyle. He's busted out of prison, and Nick wants to put him back behind bars in the worst way. What neither of them knows is that each of their fates will be decided high above the streets, with cop and convict facing down their most daunting challenges the only way they know how.…

Reader reviews

  • (2/5)
    A fairly predictable & fairly short book which weighs in at only ~180 pages (depending on edition).Originally published in 1968 it touches on the limited forensics available at the time however there's not really much noteworthy about the tale in one way or another. You can pick the serial killer quite early on and work out what is and isn't adding up well before the end of the novel.It's not really worth getting, there's much better police/serial killer novels out there and it certainly isn't anywhere near Higgin's best work. I only picked it up as I'm attempting to read/collect all his works, if that's not a goal of yours I'd probably say get something else.

    Nick Miller is back, and with a tough case to handle. A man on the streets, a serial killer of women, most prostitutes, but not all. 4 women dead from him, and suddenly, on another raint night, a 5th shows up. Work of the same man, or something else? Nick Miller gets to figure it out, while theres an escaped prisioner on the loose as well. Higgins does a wonderful job of confusing the reader, much as the police are, giveing them several possibilities of who may be committing these crimes. He keeps the reader guessing, and turning pages with a great pace, and characters you can sink your teeth into.
