Kathleen George's Afterimage
EW reviewed another book by George recently and mentioned that she sets her mysteries in Pittsburgh, so of course I had to check them out! George is actually a theater professor at Pitt, but she has a good story sense for mysteries. Apparently this is the third in a series, but it didn't feel like I was missing anything and there wasn't much referring to pat events. In this one, a rookie cop is vaguely acquainted with two murder victims and gets a hunch for who the killer might be. I found the end a little disappointing, and was annoyed that characters would announce that the rookie cop had a crush on her boss when we'd seen no evidence that was the case until then, but it was a serviceable story and I'll read her new one if the library gets it.
