A big and lengthy story, full of intrigue, horror and violence. Detective Alice Madison and detective sargeant Kevin Brown are called to investigate a crime scene where both parents and their two young boys have been brutally slain. Forensic evidence points to a suspected killer, John Cameron. However, newly made detective Madison soon begins to suspect thay there is much more involved. A very strong recommendation to make the time to enjoy this new author's offering. J M Lydon

This is one cool and involving police procedural. It takes place in Seattle where it rains a lot and is dark and ominous. Think “The Killing" that great show that aired a few years ago. Read this, and try and stay focused. Believe me you will not know who did what until the very end of the story. I loved this book.
