Very good writer--heavy detail--deep crime fiction. Dark.

Really interesting read. I'm quite fussy when it comes to books and can be turned off pretty quickly if something isn't written the way I like or there are a lot of mistakes, but this one ticked all the boxes. My only issue with this one is that the main character cheated on his wife!

This book started off as a good, but not exceptional, police procedure mystery. However, about a third of the way through it started to morph into a psychological come tangled relationship novel. I don't really like the latter plus I didn't like the, first person, protagonist. This meant that I ended up forcing myself to finish this book.

That said the book itself was well written and the characters believable so if you like this sort of book its well worth a read.

The strength of this book is the author's inside knowledge of police procedures and what it's like to be a cop. In the middle of a serial murder investigation, the main character, Lincoln Munroe, has to deal with nightmares and a host of personal issues. All these elements work together to produce a gripping read. The ending is only partially resolved, which creates a reason to check out the other books in the series.

Excellent. The lead character, Lincoln Munroe, chases a serial killer and his own personal demons and failings in this well written story. The ending was unexpected and make me feel for the man who was fighting his past and trying to rebuild his future. I recommend it.

A great read! Very detailed accounts of police work without confusing or boring the reader. The conclusion with The Strangler seemed a bit rushed but it fit the story regardless. I'm looking forward to future writings from this author!

Realistically told crime drama. The character of Lincoln Munroe is well established and I am looking foward to more of how his life plays out.
