I'm so excited! E.J. Findorff has offered me a free copy of his book. All I have to do is read it (YAY) and post a review. I can't wait to read this book. Review to follow...

Detectives Decland Dupree and Ron Lacey draw the case of a sadistic homosexual serial killer. The killer is systematically working through Deck's former girlfriends as well as killing a random gay man each time. For unknown reasons FBI Deputy Director Dorrick enters the investigation and immediately starts interfering and bad-mouthing the two detectives. As the violence escalates, the manhunt is on for one of Deck's old buddies.

This book starts out very strong and sucked me right into the plot. I was on page 60 before I even realized it. I honestly had difficulty putting it down. The plot is complex and deftly crafted with twists and surprising turns that come fast and furious. The homosexual plot was surprising since there was not even a hint of it in the premise. I really liked Decland and him and Ron made a good team as they each had strengths that complemented the other. I didn't particularly like Ron as he was too abrupt, too rude and downright crude at times. I wasn't surprised when he got ejected from the team. I was more surprised that he lasted as long as he did with his attitude. When the FBI entered the picture, I had a feeling that it wasn't going to end well for Deck and Ron. Right from the beginning there just was something off with Dorrick.

All in all a great story line with a well executed plot and real characters.

Laurie Thank you for the recommendation Barbara! I will be reading this in the next month or so. I love a good police procedural and how can you beat a serial killer in the mix too?! :)
