PRIME WITNESS Steve Martini (Putnam, $21.95) This summer thriller is meticulous, with every end tucked in-and so is the way its villain commits murder. Six pairs of bodies have been found spread-eagled in the woods between razor-honed tent stakes. Although the story sometimes bogs down in legal maneuvers, it ends beautifully-with legality and brutality slotted together, precision-engineered. The last 15 pages deliver the same click of satisfaction as the final flip that solves a Rubik’s Cube. B+ -Kate Wilson
