Lane Cooley is the best Homicide Detective on the LAPD. But she isn't anything like you'd imagine. She's no fast-talking femme fatale... no, she's a Good Mormon Girl who doesn't smoke, drink, cuss, or even watch R-rated movies.

But that doesn't mean Lane misses out on all the blood and guts. Especially now. A new serial killer is in town, one who knows all the cops' tricks,

Holy cow. That was the first thing I uttered after I finished this book. It was that good. It was the kind of book that I've been looking for (a twisty clean, really well-done mystery) and haven't quite been able to find to this degree. It was unexpected.

First, a disclaimer: Michaelbrent is my cousin, and I've always felt vaguely guilty because I haven't read more of his books--but as his genre of preference is horror/thriller, you couldn't really pay me enough to read them. (I frighten myself enough as it is). When he announced a new book that was a genre I *do* read (mystery!), I was more than happy to purchase it.

Only at the end did I remember what Michaelbrent had told me about this book before I bought it: People think they've got it figured out early on, then there's a satisfying twist at the end... and then ANOTHER twist that blindsides them. Describes me perfectly. (Really wish he'd let me do his book covers, though!) ...more

A really cool 'whodunit' mystery/thriller. It's fast paced with lots of action and surprises. It reminded me a little of the movie, "Brigham City." ...more
