3.5 Stars - A suspenseful short story but not heart-pounding. I rounded up slightly because I liked the unique concept of looking for a slayer of hearts verses bodies. It was intriguing. And I appreciate Deaver likes to write a solid short story, not just something that feels like an exerpt from a series or a discarded novel idea. Lincoln Rhyme and his wife Amelia return to help an old friend whose heart's been broken by devious dating app user. They're a good team but law enforcement's hands are tied. But who will stop this creep? Not much else can be said without spoilers but this was a fun little read, sure to please fans of the series I think, and even casual mystery readers.
