Live Bait is the second novel in PJ Tracy's Gino and Magozzi thriller series.
When elderly Morey Gilbert is found, lying dead in the grass by his wife, Lily, it's a tragedy, but it shouldn't have been a shock - old people die. But when she finds a bullet hole in his skull, the blood washed away by heavy rain, sadness turns to fear. It looks like an execution . . .
Soon a whole city is fearful as new victims are found, killed with the same cold precision. All elderly. All apparently blameless.
Detectives Gino and Magozzi, race to uncover a connection and their best hope of doing so may be Grace McBride, beautiful, damaged survivor of an earlier killing spree. And the answers, it seems, are buried in a terrible past.
Grace MacBride and Detectives Gino and Magozzi are back in PJ Tracy's Live Bait, the follow-up to debut Want to Play? Live Bait is an exciting thriller that explores the chilling extremes of evil and retribution, and is followed in the series by Dead Run and Snow Blind. Fans of Karen Rose should be paying attention.
