Four years after serial killer Silas Alvah shook the city of Seattle to its core…

Retired Detective, John Corbin has settled into his life of husband, father, and restaurant owner. However, detective work is embedded in his heart and soul. The pull has never left him.

John is drawn out of retirement because of a disturbed killer’s twisted game, using human beings as pawns. He will have to risk everything returning to the horrors of work that left him scared. Someone must at least attempt to save the innocent from evil.

The Redemption is a twisting, turning labyrinth that will take you on a thrill ride unlike anything you have experienced before, as each life is measured by our most unforgiving enemy…time.

If you like the work of James Patterson, you’ll love this book by David Boiani!

Excerpt:

“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.”

“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.”

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.

kestrel watcher on Amazon wrote:

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.

Maria on Amazon UK wrote:

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.

Where is Gabriel Clay?

The search is on for missing twelve-year-old, Gabriel Clay. Few know Gabriel has a secret. Dangers are built-in with his secret. Seasoned detectives, Ben Schwartz and Al Di Natale have joined the rest of Boston in what many call a fool’s errand. The Boston area the boy and his grandmother live in is plagued with drugs and violence. However, the school he attends, George Washington Carver Charter School, offers a first-rate education and an outstanding basketball program.

Wounded Army captain, Ty Douglass, a graduate himself, returns from Afghanistan and joins the hunt. Douglass connects with old friends, Solomon Greer and Charles O’Toole, aka Tool. They share a tragedy from their youth; the unsolved murder of a friend. Empty Doorways has many secrets. Gabriel Clay has his, City Councilor Marty Doyle has his own, and Douglass wonders if Greer and Tool, whose illegal business is becoming more treacherous, know more about their friend’s death than they are admitting. In order to solve this case, the two detectives must risk their lives to uncover the secrets.

Otherwise, there will be more empty doorways unfilled because loved ones are never coming home.

Excerpt:

His blue police light flashing on the dash, Di Natale pushed his Mustang up to 80. Ahead was the exit for Dorchester Bay. Di Natale had forgotten his LED flashlight. In a pinch, he’d use the little light on his smart phone to make the arrest. He wished he had his Army night vision goggles. He felt prepared, though. His mission was to confirm if the tip about the shipment was real. Then he’d call in help.

But it was risky and not sanctioned by police procedures. He should have informed his superiors before he left.  If a professional killer was overseeing the delivery, Di Natale could get himself killed and the killer gets away. Would he be doing this on his own, if he was still with his wife Donna and son Chris? Maybe not. Without his family, which he was losing with the divorce, he had less to lose. He drove onto the road to the beach and yacht club. He put his police light back into the glove box.

READ MORE

Di Natale had on his ballistic vest, with pockets for four full magazines and his cell phone. Clipped to his vest shoulder strap was a walkie talkie on a police frequency. On his patrolman’s belt rested his holstered Glock 9mm, a set of cuffs, and a Spyderco knife in a scabbard. He wore hiking boots with dark wool socks, black jeans, a black sweatshirt under the vest, a dark blue nylon rain jacket, with green neon letters, P-O-L-I-C-E on the back, and a blue Boston PD baseball cap. He slowed the Mustang to look for a spot near the coordinates Hernandez gave him. Close enough, he  parked, the beach and the ocean in front. He smelled salt in the wind. He got a call.

“I’m on my way, Mr. Citizen Soldier,” said Schwartz. He was pissed. “We should call in SWAT and alert Boston PD.”

“Right, except won’t we look like the tail end of a baboon when all we got to show for this tip is sand in everyone’s shoes? Besides, if we make this arrest, we might get promotions.”

“Unless they’re posthumous,” said Schwartz.

Excerpt:

Upstairs Glenna paced across the plush carpet at the foot of the enormous bed.  She lifted a hand to her face to brush away the same unruly lock of hair again, but the hand was shaking so hard that she clenched it into a fist and let it drop to her side.  She took in a deep breath and exhaled slowly in an attempt to steady her nerves.  She opened a door next to her, looking for a bathroom, and found instead a large walk-in closet filled with impeccable designer suits and sports clothes and perfectly polished shoes and boots.  She stepped over to the shirt rack and ran her fingers through the dozens of tailored silk shirts.  She noticed the initials “MV” or “V” on several, and there was a wire bin that held dozens of neatly pressed handkerchiefs with the same monograms.

READ MORE

“Oh, great,” Glenna mumbled as it dawned on her, “Vikos, the V is for Vikos.  The top man put me in his room, his own bedroom.  Out of the frying pan and into the fire.”  She heard voices outside and hurried to the window.  She recognized several of the men from the conference room earlier.  She couldn’t hear what was being said, but it was obvious that the meeting had adjourned and everyone was leaving.  Within a minute there was a knock on the door, and she felt every muscle in her body tense as she turned to face the tall man who walked into the room.  He closed the door behind himself and considered the lovely wide-eyed young woman across from him.

Excerpt:

The clanging was barely audible at first. Brad held his breath, straining to hear it, but his fearful heart throbbed in his ears and made it difficult to pinpoint, It seemed to come from a great distance, but from every direction. Brad allowed himself to exhale a stagnant gasp, trying to silence it in shudders. The sound became clearer, seemed to be getting closer. One repetitive sound, as if Brad was trapped in a huge bell jar and some giant finger kept tapping the glass. His breaths were still coming in staccato relief, but the clanging Had now increased in volume significantly. Brad called an image to mind of the Sunday walk to church with his family as a child. The tintinnabulations of the mighty bell growing in intensity as they grew closer to the massive stone edifice that had always filled him with dread. This sound had the same effect.
