Overview

Lieutenant John Halloway is called to a crime scene on a cold and rainy night in the middle of downtown Vegas. Once there, in the small, grassy court yard in front of the Courthouse, he finds a man bound to a make-shift cross, naked, all of his sneses brutally mutiliated. The only clues are a note left hanging around his neck and a message burned into the man's forehead.
As John and his partner, Detective Laura Griffin begins their investigation they soon find out that this is only the beginning. Before they can even close the first case, they are called out to yet another one. The Guardian proceeds to take out one predator at a time. The only clues that he leaves are his calling card, signiture messges. He is like a ghost.
The numbers of the victims is adding up, however suddenly there is a new evil in town and things have gone from bad to worse.
Unable to find their suspect, having nothing to go on but what he chooses to give them, Halloway and Griffin are finally forced to instill the help, talents and resources of the very person they are themselves trying to find.

JUST FINISHED READING GUARDIAN. LOVED ALL THE CHARACTERS. THE PLOT WAS PLAUSABLE, QUICK MOVING, FULL OF SUSPENSE. THE STORY PULLED ME INTO AND HAD ME NOT ONLY CHEERING THE EFFORTS OF THE GUARDIAN, BUT ALSO THE TWO POLICE OFFICERS. D.E. HALL WAS WISE TO SET THE CITY OF LAS VEGAS AS THE SCENE. HALL PROVES WHAT HAPPENS IN LAS VEGAS DOESN'T ALWAYS STAY THERE. SCUM CAN MOVE TO SAFER HUNTING GROUNDS WHEN THE HEAT BECOMES TO UNBEARABLE. I STILL THE PUNISHMENTS GIVEN OUT BY THE GUARDIAN WAS TOO EASY. THEN AGAIN PUTTING THE SCUM TO DEATH WOULD HAVE BEEN TOO LENIENT. THE STORY IS NOT OVER. HALL LEFT A CLIFF HANGER FOR THOSE SMART ENOUGH TO RECOGNIZE. CAN'T WAIT FOR BOOK #2. DON'T WAIT TOO LONG HALL. ANYONE READING THIS I SUGGEST YOU PURCHASE IT AND READ IT WITH AN OPEN MIND. THE SUBJECT MATTER CAN BE UPSETTING TO SOME READERS.
