I received this book free from the author, and that did not influence my review of this book.

This is another very good thriller in the Darc Murders series, following a fast-paced chase of a serial murderer around Seattle. Darc, a detective with Aspergers, interprets the symbols left behind by the murderer to decipher his next move. It's incredibly interesting to hear from the different characters in the book, as they each take turns being the center of the story. You start to realize that Janey

I've enjoyed this series of books and the final chapter in this set was the perfect ending to the 3-part story.
The first part of the book was a little slower than the previous two books but that was because the author was trying to set up more of the relationships within the characters and how they have progressed since the first book in the series.
As usual there were some very good ha-ha moments that had me laughing out loud, especially with Trey & Janey; those two characters are a perfec

OMG! Seriously awesome conclusion to an amazing series.

Normally I can guess who the bad guy is about part way through most thriller type mysteries, but this series constantly had me guessing and second guessing.

In 5th Pentagram, I was seriously surprised at who the bad guy was. And it was great. I love being surprised.

As much as I loved this series, I was sad to finish this book knowing it was the conclusion to this series. I loved the Characters. Especially Darc and Janie. Their relationship a

I was a beta-reader for the novel, but it did not influence my judgement.
The novel is an excellent conclusion of the series. I will really miss the characters!
The plot was intriguing and suspensful with one minor weakness. In my opinion, the motive for the murders was not satisfying and a bit weak. I expected a more developed and justified reason for the killings. Nevertheless, the ending was great and the death of the murderer was so creative! Loved it! The style was good and descriptive, but

A very satisfying read. I love a thriller with interesting characters and combinations of characters. This oddball team of 4 who are dependent upon each other to solve cases as a whole meet that criteria. It's even plausible if you're willing to stretch your imagination a little for the enjoyment. Very clever twists of the plot keep you guessing as to who the major villain is. Hope the author plans to continue the series for a few more.

I LOVE THIS SERIES IT IS SO FASCINATING, MAKES ME LAUGH-CRY-THINK. THAT SAID I TOALLY AGREE THAT HIGH FRUCTOSE HAS CAUSED SO MANY OF US TO HAVE DIABETES. WE ARE PRODUCYS OF OUR OWN
MAKING . . .GREED! THE WHOLE STORY LINE IS ADDICTING, WHICH I AM, CAN'T WAIT TO READ MORE. I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE CONNECTION OF DARC AND JANEY. HOW DEEP DOES IT GO? THE COVERS ON ALL THESE BOOKS ARE JUST BEAUTIFUL, WORKS OF ART! ;D

Awesome twisted read! I can not get enough of this deliciously wicked, maniacal, dysfunctionally-comical and hard to put down series.

McCray and Hopkins truly did an excellent job pulling me into the and holding me captive through the last sentence!

My one disappointment - it ended! McCray & Hopkins, Please, please hurry with the next installment of this series, I need more Darc! ;-)

This is the third book to the collection and I'm posting my full review under that. I do want to mention of you like Carolyn and Ben (which are favorites of mine) you will not want to miss this collection. WARNING this is very graphic and gory! The cast is really great and through the collection you will love what happens to Darc! Great read.....

Amazing, as always! Darc is one of my favorite characters by far. I've really enjoyed watching him grow as a person.
