Patrick J. Ouellette's gripping, psychological thriller, A Cop Story, takes the reader on a riveting and twisted ride as seasoned FBI Agent Henry Donovan frantically tries to track down a savage serial killer. Set in 1994 and 1995, A Cop Story shines with respect to its portrayal of the pre-Y2K detective era, where hard work, decision-making ability, a gun, and a car were a detective's main resources. With no modern-day technology, much less a cell phone, Agent Donovan must step into the mind of a psychotic killer with maternal issues and an inconsistent MO. A Cop Story carves a gritty, relentless pursuit of justice and is a pulse-pounding, electric tour de force right until the very end, when shocking secrets are finally revealed.

A Cop Story is the perfect book when you want quick plot developments, not too much "character development" or "atmosphere" that can bog you down. It's great for the gym, the train, or an easy vacation read. The plot twists and surprises keep coming until the very last page. The main character is likeable and the city scenes in New York give the book a real urban flavor. A good present for Father's Day even for dads who don't usually have time to read.
Classic detective page turner and leaves you wanting more. I hear the author is lined up for a sequel? I can't wait!!
