Description - Negima Volume 16 by Ken Akamatsu
Legendary FBI agent Imogen Page has a rare condition called synesthesia, in which her brain transmits sights, sounds, and images as flavors. The mingling of her senses makes her acutely aware of patterns and unusually empathic. That's why the bureau barely gives her time to recover from her brother's death before they haul her back on the case of serial killer Loverboy, who sends collages of his future crime scenes to the feds, taunting them to solve the puzzles before he kills again. He's on his fifth collage. His victim is the reputed paramour of automobile mogul Robert Benton, a take-charge executive who puts his vast resources at Imogen's disposal. She is well aware of what awaits the sadistic Loverboy's victim, and she methodically attempts to piece together the clues laid out in the collage before time runs out. Although the plot strains credulity and Imogen's special gift never lives up to its intriguing promise, this novel offers some fascinating secondary characters, plenty of sprightly sexual banter, a few really bad knock-knock jokes, and plot twists aplenty.
