Read in July, 2012

It has been a long time since I've been drawn to a thriller that didn't involve some very explicit element of the paranormal; when the author stated on her blog that she was doing a giveaway for this title, I clicked through to see what it was about -- and I am so glad that I did. I have a soft spot for dark, handsome, emotionally repressed FBI agents (thank you, Fox Mulder), and the correlation of Roarke chasing a female serial killer -- I had to see what was going to happen.

The characters were well-rounded and very interesting. Although there are some definite familiar notes here -- the cop who can't connect to a family, the woman who can't tolerate children being hurt -- they are expressed in a fresh enough way that they don't feel like tropes, instead feel like good friends that I get to reconnect with after a long absence. The plot kept going to different places than I expected, which I loved -- I felt surprised and interested as things rolled along, and I did not guess the ending, which is always important to me in this genre.

There is a slight element of the paranormal worked into this book, but it is more a hint of the evil that walks the world, the thing that cops and poets see, and the rest of us try to ignore. I don't think this would put off a reader who wants a more strict procedural book.

I am eagerly looking forward to the sequel!
