Sinopsis: Dead of Nyte follows Seattle Patrol Officer Kel Nyte?s struggle to balance her sense of duty, career aspirations and, with her partner missing in action in the Middle East, raising a teenager as a single-parent. These conflicts fade to a murmur, however, when a serial murderer lures her into the hunt and volleys, like targeting mortars, an ever tightening barrage on her family. While on routine patrol, a text message?the enigmatic DK?s manifesto?hits Kel?s phone with the threat of serial murder. Even though she has no authority to investigate a hangnail, she decides to probe the first crime scene off-duty and without backup, and falls right into the murderer?s hands. Prodded into the pursuit at the business end of a stun gun, anger and humiliation aren?t enough resources to perform an investigation of this scale. It takes the warrior DNA bred into her for generations, and coffee, lots of coffee, coffee in quantities only a skilled barista can deliver. On the case, she?s partnered with a seasoned detective, but with his ?stay-the-hell-out-of-my-way? arrogance, Kel is forced to investigate solo. She combs through riddles, the lesson plan DK leaves at each scene. They not only give insight to his motive, but drive her investigation deep into a layered labyrinth of secrets from her father?s furtive past and SPD corruption. But just when she suspects that her dad, the retired police chief, is the prime suspect, DK?s next clues include death threats to her fourteen year-old daughter and Kel?s sister. Now with a gnat?s-breath of time on his clock, no matter what the personal cost, she must find both the killer and the means to stop his rampage before he executes his final lesson.
Sinopsis: Prodded into the pursuit at the business end of a stun gun, anger and humiliation might kick start the hunt, but they?re not enough resources for Officer Kel Nyte to perform an investigation of this scale. It takes coffee, lots of coffee, coffee only a skilled barista can deliver, and, despite the mounting circumstantial evidence and accusations, the wisdom of the recently-retired police chief, her terminally-ill father, Dirk Nyte. Beginning with DK?s manifesto, text messages meant for Kel?s eyes become the communication link with the killer and reveal clues which lead to each successive victim. Left at the crime scene, poems also offer insight into the motive and reveal his lesson plan. At first, the pupil is as much a mystery as the phantom murderer. But as the minutes sweep by and the body count rises, it?s not until the fourth planned kill that Kel stitches enough of DK?s ramblings together to discover that he is a soldier her dad left for dead in Vietnam more than forty years ago. But why now, and why these victims who had nothing to do with all DK lost? Is it a twisted form the retribution for DK?s years of bondage in the Southeast Asian jungles, the family who buried him and moved on, or is it the unsolved murder of his estranged son, a police officer also under Dirk?s command? Once Kel realizes that each victim strikes closer to Dirk?s inner circle, and that her sister is the final exam, the race escalates. Now, no matter what the personal cost?even her own life?she must stop DK before he discloses his ultimate lesson
