Die with Me by Elena Forbes
Somewhere in London, a lonely young woman is reaching out to the wrong man. It's up to Detective Inspector Mark Tartaglia and the rest of the local murder squad to find her before it's too late.
When fourteen-year-old Gemma Kramer's broken body is found on the floor of St. Sebastian's Church, the official ruling is that she jumped to her death from the organ gallery above the altar. But then a witness comes forward claiming to have seen Gemma kissing a much older man before the two disappeared into the church together. And after the toxicology report comes back showing traces of the date-rape drug GHB and alcohol in the girl's system, a full-scale murder investigation is launched.
At the helm is Mark Tartaglia, a stubborn detective known for following his hunches. It's Tartaglia's first time in charge, and he walks right into a political minefield as the murder squad turns up three more suspicious deaths - all originally ruled suicides - involving vulnerable young women falling from high places. Bombarded with conflicting theories from the media, criminal profilers, and ambitious colleagues, Tartaglia and his detectives must connect the dots between victims in order to capture a serial killer with a chilling predilection for lonely girls and deadly heights.
