    electrifying thriller

    After being injured in the line of duty, homicide detective Frank Quinn accepted a disability retirement, but he remained a contractor available to the police force as occasionally case surfaces that require his special skills. The Police Commissioner Harley Renz has a particularly gruesome serial killer that he wants Frank to find. Men are being brutally murdered with the perpetrator taking a .25 caliber gun from the victim's phone which is in his pocket.

    Frank obsesses over finding this maniac because the culprit killed one of the detectives Joe Garlin who worked narcotics. While working this personal difficult case, another serial killer surfaces who kkills and guts his victims as if he is carving up a deer with a hunting knife. The police believe the same person has expanded his modus operendi to bring new sadistic satiation. Frank fears he will be the next victim as he offers himself up as bait to catch one perhaps two killers.

    Without fanfare, the dedicated protagonist believes it is his duty to end the killing reign as police work gives him satisfaction just like slicing and dicing does to his opponent. With a great twist Joh Lutz is at his best with his latest thrilling Kill police procedural (see NIGHT KILLS and IN FOR THE KILL) as his hero and his villain share more in common than people realize. Fans will relish this fast-paced electrifying thriller.

    A Real Killer Thriller

    John Lutz has written another in his line of serial killer thrillers, and this one has a new and intriguing plot line -- is there one killer or are there two. The killings are vastly dissimilar and yet the professionals believe it possible that both serial killers are in fact one. It takes some very scary twists and turns to unravel this mystery and you are left guessing until the very end. Along the way, a totally unrelated plot line about domestic violence is wound through the story -- you wonder if there is a tie, and worry about the resolution of this story along with the predominant plot -- and it has a very satisfying conclusion. Lutz had great character development for his killer(s) -- want to leave you guessing here -- with plenty of flashbacks to give the reader insight into compulsions. I loved this book, and if you like hard hitting thrillers, you should love it too.

    Worth reading

    His stories are always well written, but too often with pretty much the same theme.
    I, however, keep reading them.

    Love Det. Quinn, Pearl and Feds

    This is the second book featuring these three characters that I have read, and Lutz again has come up with a winner. Not only are these main characters interesting, fun and quirky, the story line is outstanding as well. Lots of thrills, chills and a couple surprises too. Don't miss the excitement!
