Her main character Catherine "Cat" Power is a fantastic new heroine in the vein of Kay Scarpetta & Clarice Starling. FBI consultant Power is hot on the the trail of a serial killer dubbed "The Burning Man" in Los Angeles. She meets up with a general group of characters and begins her investigation. In the meantime, she is dealing with guilt over being away from her 6-year old son.
Ms. Ritchie also gives us glimpses into the killers mind as he hunts and kills his next victims. This helps to give some insight into his desires and what drives him to torture and murder young women.
I feel Ms. Ritchie has done a superior job assembling a believable cast of characters with a chilling story. At times it does seem to have more characters than necessary. Some are introduced yet their storyline goes nowhere. But her storyline is strong and her writing is vivid and crackles as it moves at brisk pace. There is a surprising twist at the end with the promise of more appearances by Ms. Powers and others as well.
Ms. Ritchie should have a solid new career ahead of her!
