Rage Against the Dying, by Becky Masterman
I love a flawed protagonist, and retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn is deeply flawed, completely human, and often quite funny. When a man is arrested for a series of ritualized killings that might have included her former protege, Brigid draws away from her happy marriage and quiet retired life, toward the chaos and brutality of the investigation of serial killers. When it turns out that someone might also be hunting her, Brigid's marriage, her life, and her freedom are all on the line.
