Southern Lights by Danielle Steel: Finally, a novel by Steel that wasn't depressing as hell. This was a romantic, legal novel, if those two things are plausible. Assoc. District Attorney Alexa Hamilton is handed the biggest case of her career. A serial killer, accused of raping and murdering at least eighteen young women. Can Alexa handle it? When threats to her seventeen year-old daughter start arriving, Alexa is forced to take drastic measures.
I haven't read a Steel novel for years. The reviews for this one sounded pretty good. I'm glad I took the time to seek it out at the library and read it.
