Book description from slake.com
Some sins are unforgivable.... There's no escaping the sizzling heat of the Washington summer...or the twisted ministry of "The Priest" -a madman who is strangling slender, pretty blondes with the white silk scarf of a priest, leaving notes that forgive his victims. But it's the flame of white-hot, pasion that is giving Tess Court and Ben Paris real trouble-two professionals who can't quite keep a professional distance from each other. Tess Court, the top-notch shrink assigned to the case by the mayor, is slender, pretty and blonde.... Ben Paris, a magnetic police sergeant in charge of the investigation, is unable to resis her. But someone else has his eyes on Tess... someone who dreams of saving her, of cleansing her soul with his special brand of absolution in the hot, still night.
