AL lthe press about this book deals with the issues of Native American heritage but the truth is the book drops the native theme of the killer halfway through and never picks it up again. This is NOT a book about Native Americans -- Its a book about a Native American Cop investigate intriguing murders. The last half is hard to put down, but I found the long Tsalie discussions and grandfather scenes tedious and distracting of the action. None-the-less -- if you like some gory details and a plot twist or two its a good book for a Saturday afternoon.

Detective Lucas Stonecoat feels caught between two worlds as he wants to honor the traditions of his Native American heritage, but follows the procedures of the Houston police department where he works. He drops everything when his first love Tsalie informs him that his beloved grandfather is dying. He needs to say his good-byes to his revered relative. While Lucas goes on leave, The Scalper, a deadly serial killer, strikes again. Lucas, in charge of the investigation, leaves his grandfather¿s side to look at the crime scene. At his apartment, Lucas finds police psychiatrist Dr. Meredith Sanger there waiting for him. She knew the victim. Though they share a professional relationship, sexual sparks fly between Meredith and Lucas. Still holding that in abeyance, the two concludes that the last murder is probably not the work of the Scalper, but that of a different sociopath. As the death toll mounts and the city cringes in fear, Lucas and Meredith place themselves at risk in order to stop a deadly perpetrator from killing again.

Readers who walk the COLD EDGE will feel apprehension and near panic as the story line takes the audience into the warped minds of human monsters and the terrified minds of the victims. The maniacal killers relish murder, torture, and rape while the terrified victims welcome death. The police procedural is exciting because Robert W. Walker keeps the audience (and his cops) on edge as to whether there are one or more killers. Sub-genre fans will want to walk along the edge with Mr. Walker¿s latest chiller.
