A solid police procedural with an interesting cast of characters

This review is from: Playing The Game (Kindle Edition)

Though I tend not to follow thriller procedurals very often, this is a good one. From a vicious adversary to a strong protagonist to a cast of believable background characters, the story grabbed me from the beginning and swept me into a current of nonstop action.

Los Angeles Police Detective Michael Patton has become the target of a mysterious villain known as "The Chemist." As he receives instructions that lead him through "the game," the bodies of young women stack up. If only he could be faster. If only he could somehow get one step ahead. But it isn't until his own daughter is kidnapped that Patton and his team of supporting officers rise to their full capability.

I especially enjoyed the political intrigue that plays in the background throughout this well-plotted story.
