  • Tiger Paw on Sep. 12, 2012

    TIGER PAW is an outstanding mystery/thriller. FBI Profiler Scott Forrester bucks the system trying to find a killer who defies being profiled. When some enormously wealthy and influential people are picked off one at a time, Scott's boss demands that Scott profile these muders as mob related hits. Scott loses FBI support when he refuses to profile these murders as such. Greed, evil, power, blackmail, double dealing and an extremist cult factor into these murders, but these factors are not common to all the victims. Scott must find that elusive point of commonality among the murdered in order to find the murderer. This intriguing tale kept me guessing from the first page to the last. The characters were so humanly defined that I could not tell the good guys from the bad. I even saw myself in the mix more than once which was truly scary. When an author causes his reader to think outside the book, plot and the reader's own perceptions of himself, then the author has achieved a high mark. You are such an author, Mr. Cornell.
