Michelle Gagnon-- "The Tunnels"

The crime scenes are grim and otherworldly. The bodies of two female students are found mutilated and oddly positioned in the dark labyrinth beneath the school, haunting symbols painted on the walls behind them. In her decade tracking serial killers, FBI Special Agent Kelly Jones has witnessed terrible offenses against humanity. Yet the tragedy unfolding at her alma mater chills her to the bone. Evidence suggests there is a connection between the victims, all daughters of powerful men. And elements of the killing point to a dark ancient ritual. As the body count rises, so do the stakes. The killer is taunting Kelly, daring her to follow him down a dangerous path from which only one can emerge.

***Not the best thriller i have ever read, but not the worst. It has a boring start, uninteresting characters, and a slow developing plot. But about half-way thru it picks up and the chase begins. The three main characters are more likable at this point but the killer is revealed a little to soon for my liking and the end just leaves you hanging like a door shut in your face. This seems to be the first in a series starring FBI Agent Kelly Jones, hope the next installment is better.
