"Islington is a great storyteller. Weaving the protagonist's hunt for justice through the bayous of Louisiana culture was captivating."

Special Agent Trey Fontaine has his hands full as he tries to juggle three different sets of cases in his hometown. While healing from a bullet wound, and on limited duty, he is charged with helping find out what's happening to young women who are disappearing without a trace. But that's just the beginning. Someone is beating and raping women in town, women who are related to his godfather, Detective Russell Coleman. And then the bodies of men start showing up, eviscerated. Are the crimes related? Or are has the town become a haven for all sorts of criminals?
Wile, Rocky, and Drew, three children from a violent home, take matters into their own hands and soon the small town of Raven Bayou, Louisiana is brimming with dead bodies. But the only victims are those whose background proves them to be deserving of such justice.

This is my kind of book. Revenge. Vigilante Justice. Characters who are far from perfect. I can relate. The mystery was more psychological than the typical mystery on the shelf. Works for me.
This book was a little too bloody and gory for me, but I couldn't put it down. I love Trey Fontaine, though he does have a weakness for drugs, and love Gemini, who has become one of my favorite heroines.
