    • They also included a quote from book lead Andrew which revealed the title to be Crimes of Passion: “I’ve loved working on mystery Books for Choices since the days of Most Wanted, and I think fans of the genre are going to love this one. In Crimes of Passion, a truly terrifying serial killer stalks New York City, and it’ll take a pair of very unlikely partners to bring him down! You can expect spooky thrills, exciting action, plenty of crime scene investigation, and that special wonderful blend of snarky slow-burn that you only get with two partners bickering over a crime scene.”
