Thrill Kill: A Matt Sinclair Mystery by Brian Thiem

Cops in Oakland seldom meet people whose lives are going well. That's certainly the case when homicide sergeant Matt Sinclair recognizes the dead woman hanging from a tree as a teenage runaway named Dawn he arrested ten years before. And as Sinclair and his partner, Cathy Braddock, soon learn, many of Dawn’s clients, not to mention the local and federal officials, who protect them will go to any length to keep the police from digging too deep into her past.

Then the killer goes public, and Sinclair and Braddock must race to uncover the secrets Dawn was killed to protect before the killer unleashes a major attack on a scale the city has never seen before. But in the process, Sinclair runs into secrets from his own past--some of which could end his homicide career for good.

With Thrill Kill, the second novel in the Detective Matt Sinclair mystery series, Brian Thiem, a veteran of the Oakland Police Department and the Iraq war, has written a nuanced police procedural that could only be written by a trained detective with years of hard-earned experience.

Brian Thiem gives us his second thrilling police mystery filled with violence and mayhem in THRILL KILL. Detective Matt Sinclair is called to a crime scene where a young woman hangs naked from a tree. She had been set afire and further brutalized. Matt Sinclair steps up as the only one who can identify this former prostitute he'd arrested years ago and tried to help. That's just the beginning of Sinclair's troubles - admitting he knew her. Detective Sinclair is a private man and he keep secrets close. No one knows he knew the victim. No one knows about the PTSD from Iraq. They know about the AA meetings, but are clueless about the struggle he faces to maintain sobriety.. This is one magnetic read, a thrilling cop mystery with lots of drama that held me in my chair till the last page was turned. There is enough witty banter to lighten up in the right moment. It would be entertaining enough right there, but throw in political corruption and government control, plus personal secrets and plot twists, and you'll find Brian Thiem weaves a tight fabric of colorful intrigue throughout THRILL KILL that's sure to captivate you. {Recommend read RED LINE before THRILL KILL)
