Here we are for the next in this most awesome series.
I love this detective series for its grit and grime.
For its special attention to details some similar books just don’t have.
The love and care that Dave shows for his adopted daughter, and his now wife, added in so amazingly smooth, and you know the story would suck without it.
I mention it especially in this because when this book got under-way, it went straight into the story-line.
No pre-amble, no chit-chat among author and reader, just flat-out into it from sentence one. Only problem I had, there was no mention of the family until nearly the fifth chapter. I noticed it right off, as usually somehow, they’re in from page one.
This book also had some new elements in it, and it is a subject matter I hope the author doesn’t try and visit too often. McCammon he’s not.
All the books up to this one have run smooth, this one had a couple tangled lines. All in all, it was a fascinating, riveting and at times white-knuckle read. I recommend it with only a hair’s breadth of concern.
Check it out for yourself, and let us know what you think.
