The Return: An Inspector Van Veeteren Mystery (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard)
When a young girl on a woodland hike stumbles upon a corpse with no hands, feet, or head, Chief Inspector Van Veeteren, recovering from surgery in a nearby hospital, begins to piece together the clues in the case, which could be linked to several previously closed cases, including the murders of two other women and a missing athlete who had served time in prison for murder.
