About the Author
Jack Wallen has been many things during his adult life. Among those many things, Jack has been an actor, hair stylist, computer engineer, bike mechanic, radio personality, and of course a writer. Over the past decade Jack has written thousands of technical articles (mostly about the Linux operating system), theatrical scripts for young audiences, as well as thriller, horror, and other forms of fiction. Jack now concentrates on horror, thriller, and fantasy fiction. Jack lives with his incredibly wonderful wife, three step-children, and six (count 'em...six) cats! For his inspiration to begin reading and writing, Jack thanks the ever-incredible Clive Barker for words that words can not describe.

However, this book does have some flaws. First, Skip is over the top in his sexual orientation. I know there are gay men who act like that (I know some personally), but it becomes tiresome after a while. Second, the author uses the terms "cross-dresser," "drag queen," and "transgender" almost interchangeably. Not all drag queens or cross-dressers want to change gender. (Few actually do.) The author also uses the pronoun "he" and "his" for those characters who are actually transitioning; he should have used female pronouns. As an aside, contrary to the book's description, the victims are transsexual women (male-to-female), not transsexual men (female-to-male).
Read this book. You won't be sorry.
Can be very graphic in places, but needed for the story line and I thoroughly enjoyed this book, was not wanting it to end!
I wanted to reach out and "punch" the Captain/Sheriff for his "piggish" attitude towards woman, gays, and others who did not conform to his standards.
I enjoyed the work and "human" relationship between Jamie and Skip, especiallty their dedicated "team work" despite many obstacles.
As for the killer, very interesting story line and another prime example of how our pasts can rear their ugly heads in our current lives if not dealt with.
Two thumbs up for this read for sure! I highly recommend this book.
