On the Mediterranean Sea, a vacationer logs on to the security camera feed from his home in Scottsdale, Arizona. Something doesn’t look right. Rewinding through the feed, he sees an intruder. When he shifts to the bedroom camera, he sees the dead body.
A trap is set, and the man they catch – a deranged loner named Lawrence T. Livermore – is charged with the murder. It’s apparently the fifth young woman he has killed. But then Livermore gives the FBI some stunning news: Number 6 is still out there. Alive. He’ll take them to her on one condition: a former Detroit cop comes along.
To Alex, living two thousand miles away in Paradise, Michigan, Livermore is a stranger. He can’t remember encountering him as a cop, can see no connection to this man whatsoever – but he agrees to accompany the search party to a remote desert canyon. And here the worst nightmare of Alex’s life begins.
Alex will now be forced to chase this killer through the shadows in a desperate race against the clock, across the country and to the edge of his limits, until he finally uncovers the one secret from his own past that binds them together – and cuts closer to home than he ever could have imagined.
This is not a Christian fiction book. There are curse words and it’s about a serial killer who does really horrible things. No need to read the review if you don’t like reading secular books.
I have been wanting to read a book by Steve Hamilton for years. Every time I go to Mackinaw City or Mackinac Island I see his books because they are based in Michigan. I just never picked up one of his books so when I saw this one up for review I thought now was my chance.
This was a very quick read, I think simply because it was so fast paced and I couldn’t put it down.
I really enjoyed the overall story-line and Alex’s quest to find Livermore. I couldn’t figure out the connection between the two until right before Alex did, I started having my suspicions.
Livermore is one messed up dude, very disturbing and we get in his head, a very dark place.
If you like face paced thrillers this book is for you.
Visit Steve here.
