From beginning to end I was completely hooked. While there is lots of action it is the characters that drive this story. Abe and Kristen are the main romantic interest, the serial killer is the main villain, with lots of other bad guys, some if whom actually get what's coming to them. Then there are are coworkers, friends, and family, a nasty reporter, and a bunch of minor characters that bring this story to life and tug at your emotions. Great writing, an intriguing plot, and solid pacing wrap up what makes this an excellent story with your time and money.
I highly recommend this book and author.
