I really enjoyed this book. With every book in the series,Duncan is becoming a more rounded character with his inner turmoil scenes really adding depth and interest.

Stories about crimes have always resonated with me, whether it was Crime and Punishment or The Quiet American. Maybe it’s because I started my career as a police reporter, or because I worked for a time as a teacher in the county jail.

More than a decade ago, when I decided to finally get serious about writing, I started with short stories based on real misdeeds I’d witnessed. I wrote one about my
