Karen E. Olson's "Sacred Cows" is the entertaining story of Anne Seymour, a crime reporter in New Haven, Conn., who's working on a juicy story nobody wants her to pursue. Someone is killing Yale co-eds who just happen to work for a local escort service. Are the deaths tied into a crooked city politician who has conveniently gone on the lam, taking with him the investment funds of most of the city's elite? Anne's lawyer mother is one of the people who were taken. Who can Anne trust? She's dating the cop handling the case and attracted to a man her mother hired to solve the crime. I hated to put the book down. The mystery was interesting and the love triangle grabbed me. Supposed to be the first of a series--I can't wait for the next one!
