No Pity Each skeleton is flawless--gleaming white and perfectly preserved, a testament to his skill. Every scrap of flesh has been removed to reveal the glistening bone beneath. And the collection is growing. . . No Compassion When bleached human bones are identified as belonging to a former patient of Dr. James Dixon, Detective Malcolm Kier suspects the worst. Dixon was recently acquitted of attempted murder, thanks to defense attorney Angie Carlson. But as the body count rises, Kier is convinced that Angie is now the target of a brutal, brilliant psychopath. No Escape Angie is no stranger to the dark side of human nature. But nothing has prepared her for the decades-long legacy of madness and murder about to be revealed--or a killer ready to claim her as his ultimate trophy. . . Praise for the novels of Mary Burton "A twisted tale. . .I couldn't put it down!" --Lisa Jackson on Dying Scream "Taut, compelling. . .delivers a page-turner." --Carla Neggers on I'm Watching You"A chilling thriller." --Beverly Barton on Dead Ringer… (mais)

The suspense in the story was pretty good but there was very little romance. The plot was complex with so many characters that I frequently had trouble keeping everyone straight and it seemed everyone had such tragedy in their life. Detective Malcolm identifies a victim from her bones then learns she recently hired attorney Angie.

Everything I said about Senseless I could repeat about Merciless. The romance happens very late in the book, though in this one there is much more of a cat and mouse game between Malcolm and Angie. There’s very much a "boy likes girl so he dips her pigtails in the ink" vibe about it. I haven’t read enough of Burton’s work to know if this late-in-the-game romance is a signature of hers or if it has just worked that way in these books. The crime in this one is a little less personal than the previous book, or at least it starts out that way. And again, the book is missing that sense of place I was looking for — I didn’t even remember that it was supposed to be taking place in Alexandria, Virginia. But overall, it’s still an entertaining story. Burton is capable of dreaming up some pretty sadistic killers. ( )

MERCILESS takes up quite nicely where SENSELESS ended. This book continue with the story of Angie Carlson and Eva Rayburn. More background information is provided into Eva's father, as well as Angie's father, and we get to see their sibling relationship evolve into a more adult relationship. Angie is the center of this story and we also get to see more into her character, why she is the super-achiever, and learn more about her fears and insecurities. Of course the thriller aspect is very well presented in the serial murder of women associated with Angie. Angie's antagonistic relationship with Detective Kier leads to a semi-romance. There are enough twists and turns to make this an interesting read that definitely delivers. All of the characters are well developed and presented in realistic situations. A good weekend or vacation read.
The only negative aspect to this story is that the relationship between Angie and Malcolm doesn't really evolve from a sexually antagonistic one into a romantic one [SPOILER ALERT] but they still wind up becoming engaged at the end. Not quite sure how that happened. They only had a couple of dinners together, a one-time sexual encounter and a few meetings at a bar or the police station. Oh well...at least we get the happy ending. ( )

From my book review blog Rundpinne..."The tension or romance, depending on which characters, is pitch perfect, the repertoire between the cast is clever, witty, and quite fun and as before, Burton clearly demonstrates the complexities of relationships."...my FULL review may be read here: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/02/book-review-merciless-by-mary-burton.html ( )

The foul order of decaying flesh roused the woman from her drugged haze, burning her nostrils and lungs like a freshly snapped ammonia capsule.
