Baker & Taylor
A serial killer known as the "Rottweiler" stalks the young women of a London neighborhood near Lisson Grove, and the only clue lies in the trinkets taken by the killer from each victim, items that start to turn up at a local antique shop.

Blackwell North Amer
The first young woman murdered had a bite mark on her neck, prompting the media to dub her killer "The Rottweiler." As the number of killings grows to two, three, and beyond, that nickname sticks, even though it has become clear that the original bite was incidental. The Rottweiler is a serial garroter, distinguished by his habit of taking a small trinket from each victim as a macabre souvenir.
The strangled young women all lived in the same ethnically diverse London neighborhood near Lisson Grove, so it is here that the police focus their investigation. Soon their suspicions lead them to an antiques shop, where items taken from the victims start turning up amid the clutter. As we get acquainted with the odd assortment of characters who work in and pass through the shop, we sense that one of them will be the Rottweiler's next victim... unless the meticulous killer makes an uncharacteristic mistake.

A very good story with lots of colourful characters and a good ending. The only thing that spoiled it for me was the liberal use of the F word.
