The sixth Carson Ryder book and Kerley decides to mess with the established formula to freshen things up. Carson's partner, Harry Nautilus, sits on the sidelines for most of this book after a mugging. When the police are getting nowhere in the cases of abducted young, black girls, the mayor insists that a disgraced ex-cop is brought onto the case as a fresh pair of eyes. With internal police politics and old enmities dogging their every step, Ryder and Sandhill battle to save the girls before they disappear for good.

One of the devices in this book, kidnapping to order and moving the victims on, reminded me of a similar premise in a much superior book, The Straw Men. This unfavourable comparison and the replacement of Nautilus probably meant that I didn't enjoy this book as much as others in the series. Also I much prefer the stories when the partners are hunting a serial killer rather than the two bit criminals in this book.
