“Her name is Kerry Reid. They found her car abandoned, broken down on Beacon Ave near Jefferson Park,” Captain Johnson said.
“Just like that, her car breaks down and she’s gone forever,” Ricky added.
“Was she married? Any children?” John asked.
“No, she was engaged. The feds talked to her fiancée this morning.” The captain placed two files on the desk. “Here are your reports. I have to brief an officer in another case. Read up, ladies, and we’ll regroup in a bit.”
After a few minutes of scanning the report, John put the file down. “Anything here catch your eye?”
“Nope, nothing looks new. This guy is organized and efficient.”
“He obviously puts his time in. He had to scout these sites beforehand. He knew they would be vacant and undisturbed for a couple of days.”READ MORE
“The property the barn is on was owned by the Talbots. The mortgage was foreclosed quite a while ago. The old man passed and the children weren’t keeping up on the maintenance, or the bills. They all live out of state,” Ricky said. “Everything this un-sub does is calculated.”
“We have to dig into this file, figure out his methods, his profile, his next move before he does,” John said.
“When I first hit the field in New York, a partner of mine had a saying: To stay ahead of a psychopath, you have to be willing to burrow into another man’s soul. See what he sees. Feel what he feels. Think what he thinks.”
“Your partner overlooked one small detail,” John said.
“Yeah, what’s that?”
“He assumed the man has a soul.”COLLAPSE

I loved the first book in this series so I had great expectations for this one. I am glad to say I wasn’t disappointed; this one is just as good. Having read the first one, I was expecting a huge twist and was very pleased with myself when I figured out what was about halfway through. Unfortunately, I was completely wrong. Given how book 1 ended, I didn’t see how the author could write a follow-up and I’m delighted to say that he has done a great job of it. It makes sense and flows well.

I picked this up because it was a thriller and the setting was Seattle and Western Washington. It didn’t disappoint. The story is a sequel about a homicide detective. Boiani takes the reader into the dark evil acts of a psychopathic serial killer. It isn’t a comfortable place to be. I had to stop a few times and step back. We all know there are people out there doing unspeakable things to others without any qualm and I imagine policemen see their fair share of that dark underbelly of humanity. The PTSD they have to handle as part of their job has to take a toll.
Like Boiani's first two books I found this read refreshingly different and engaging.
The genre is crime thriller with a sizeable dollop of horror.
The writing style is distinctive. While the author is economical with words he tells an exciting, thought-provoking story.
