Such a great book. The story moves fairly quickly to the murder of Donna Gardener while her husband is away on a business trip. Jason, the young boy next door is quickly introduced as the prime suspect because of evidence found at the scene. I loved the way detective Dean was introduced into the story and I looked forward to the interactions between these two each time as the detective never gives up on what he thinks is the truth.
I sort of thought I knew where the story was headed, until David Chow suddenly comes into the scene. I won't give away what happens, but I never saw this part coming in the least bit, and I wondered were it all would end.
The characters were well developed and I liked the eerie feeling that crept in from time to time.
Very good story. Moved quickly at a nice pace throughout and kept me interested all the way. I was surprised as this book was not at all what I thought it would be. Truly inspiring.
I have read other stories by this author and look forward to his next. "Extreme Malice" was brilliant.
