24—All the Flowers Are Dying by Lawrence Block

In this, the 16th of the Matthew Scudder novels, retired policeman and sometime PI Matthew Scudder encounters an especially vicious, knife wielding serial killer. During the course of his investigation Matt and his wife, Elaine, become stalked by this evil and sadistic killer who rapes and kills men, women and children. 

This is a dark and overly graphic novel. Block describes in detail many of the horrific murders and rapes committed by the killer. Probably won't read another of these books.
