The first two books in the series set up a creepy conspiracy of serial killers and this, the last in the trilogy, picks up right where the second left off. By breaking Ward's murderous brother out of gaol.We follow three separate story threads starting out at opposite ends of America as they inexorably tie themselves in a murderous knot.What strikes me most about Marshall's work is his subtle, yet completely realistic commentary on the human condition. That and the fact that I love a good conspiracy theory.

The third in the Straw Men trilogy. After the events of the first two books, Nina finds herself called back by the FBI in Virginia because there's a serial killer at work (shockingly) who may just be female. For some reason, Nina is the person to call. Yes, we find out why. So Ward heads off with her to discover that his nice twin brother has escaped federal prison. Not that that's all that shocking--without him, who would be Ward's big antagonist? After all, the Straw Men need a face, so to speak. Not that the feds believe in the Straw Men or kept that part of the report or anything. So the SM have a big day coming--The Day of Angels. It seems to involve the slaughter of innocents, although it's never really clear what that's supposed to bring about, which rather miffed me. It seems like maybe it's the start of their big war, but I wasn't exactly clear about it. Other than that, a good read and it fits well with the first two books.

Former CIA Agent Ward Hopkins and his lover FBI Agent Nina Bayman hide in the remotest part of the Cascade Mountains so that the conspiracy of killers THE STRAW MEN cannot come after them. They fear reprisal ever since they along with former cop John Zandt captured Paul ¿THE UPRIGHT MAN¿ Hendrickson, a serial killer who happens to be Ward¿s twin brother a sibling he was unaware existed until he got involved in the homicides...................... FBI Los Angeles Special Agent in Charge Charles Monroe and LAPD Robbery Homicide Lieutenant Doug Olbrich arrives to inform Nina that that they need her in Virginia where an apparent female serial killer is on the rampage and that Paul escaped. Everyone knows Paul is coming for his brother, but no one knows what happened to Zandt who wanted to kill the Straw Man when they had the chance for murdering his daughter. Refusing to wait for the inevitable, Nina and Ward search for Paul, but not only uncover a tail of small town killings, they learn of the ¿Day of the Angels¿ is coming and fear the mass murders by a string of puppet serial killers............... The third Hopkins tale is an exhilarating thriller that grips the readers with suspense from the moment that the heroes know their sanctuary has been breached. The story line is action-packed as the siblings hunt for one another. Though better to have read the previous chilling stories, the audience still gains a taste of how widespread and insidious the Straw Men murder for hire conspiracy is. Michael Marshall shows his horror roots with this frightening chiller that will leave a spellbound audience leaving the lights on at night............... Harriet Klausner
