Overview

It is barely a crime — just the theft of a single pack of gum. But each crime that follows is bigger, and each accompanying note promises the next crime will be even worse.

When FBI Special Agent Dagny Gray is asked to investigate the gum thief’s fifth crime, a bank robbery, it seems like an intriguing case. However there is nothing funny about the double murder that follows. Special Agent Gray becomes part of an unlikely trio of three investigators competing to stop the escalation of crimes, often with unconventional tactics.

Bent on justice, hobbled by the Bureau, and burdened by personal demons, Dagny Gray races to untangle the meaning behind the gum thief’s madness. Can she catch him before he reaches the cataclysmic finale of his escalating spree?

    I cannot wait for more of Dagny Gray's adventures! I couldn't believe this was the author's first book. The characters are believable, likeable, and unexpectedly complex, and Miller strikes a pitch-perfect tone with their development and dialogue. The action and surprising plot twists made this a page-turner, and I stayed up late into the night to finish it. Definitely one of the best crime novels I've read in a very long time!

    When an author debuts his or her first book, it’s not expected to be very successful.  In fact, when taking a look back to their first novels, many famous writers might actually cringe.  It appears that this will not be the case with Jeff Miller.  The writing of a thriller is monotonous, as the same plot lines are continually recycled to a point where all books seem the same.  Most thrillers focus on the lives of the criminals; who they were, and why they became evil. What made this book so special is that this was not the case at all.  Instead, Miller chose a unique direction, focusing on the life of Dagny Gray who is investigating the crime.  Dagny, an anorexic FBI agent is not the typical cold hearted detective, her battles are real and relatable.  She finds herself buried much further into the case than she could ever imagine, taking readers along with her on a journey to find justice not just with the crime, but within herself.     Miller takes readers on a roller coaster ride that doesn't let up; the suspense is unending.  From the first page to the last, the search for answers continues.  Without giving anything away, I can confirm that the ending was very satisfying.  Miller separates his book into sections such as “The Why” and “The Who” that give insight into the crime in little snippets, piecing them together little by little.  Usually, when reading a story, a reader finds themselves wondering about the author themselves. What I found to be one of the greatest aspects of reading this book is that the author is available to answer them, if only asked.  Jeff Miller has a profile on the website, “Goodreads” which subsequently links to an “Ask Jeff” page, blog, and tumblr account.  All are available for curious readers to ask Miller about whatever they please.   While reading this book, it was a pleasure to have personal contact Miller and receive information that I would not have been privy to otherwise.  Miller proves a promising start in his writing career, and I can only hope that this is his first book, and his next will be bigger.

    When I read the summary to this book, I thought it would be very interesting to read, and I was right. I love how the book left me wanting more. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in crime, suspense, and thrillers. It is very much like the show Criminal Minds, or Law and Order. While I read, I was impressed by how engrossing the book was. I liked how Jeff Miller wrote about how the crimes escalated from one small crime to a very large one, while the protagonist, Dagny Grey, dealt with some of her own hardships throughout the book. Overall, I thought it was a very intriguing book to read because I love watching TV shows that are similar to this genre.
