Homicide Detective John Cooper finds himself in what seems to be a cat and mouse game with a serial killer and his life is spiraling out of control. 

The author, Linda L. Barton does a very good job of bringing to the page the creepiness and violence of the murders without being too graphic.  There are quite a few characters involved in the story and she introduced each thoroughly, explaining how each arrived into the story. 

My main problem with the book is that I didn’t find the main characters of John and his wife Kathy likeable or believable. This is a mystery thriller, but I was able to figure out where the story was heading very quickly. 

My favorite books are about the mature detective that is able to put together the pieces of the puzzle and solve the case.  Although John was touted as one of the best detectives, he did not display any common sense in the book.  Even knowing the entire story and looking back, he was a terrible law enforcement officer.
