Black Angel by Thomas Laird
Have you ever been trapped between two tough worlds?
Several young girls in Kuwait have been raped and murdered during Desert Storm. Will Koehn, an NCIS investigator, looks into the slayings but never locates the killer. Later, he returns to the United States and subsequently becomes a Homicide detective for the Chicago Police Department. Soon after, a murder and rape occur in Chicago, and the killer’s MO matches that of the girls murdered in Kuwait. The killer has followed Will home.

Black Angel is an edge-of-the-seat look at the unique cat-and-mouse relationship between criminal and cop, and how justice and revenge are inextricably linked.
