Proofreading in the second half of the book was less rigorous than in the first half.
Near the end, there was a long, highly detailed sequence depicting an ambulance ride in which a paramedic struggles to keep a gunshot victim alive. Yes, it was well-written -- even polished -- and very interesting. Yet, it was so out of place, and so much more detailed than any other part of the book, that I decided that the author must have once been a paramedic -- that he was padding out the book, AND, showing off a bit as an author, AND bringing some glory to paramedics. And, I nailed it! At the end of the book, there was a short bio that indicated that the author had, indeed, been a paramedic.
It was around the three-quarter point of the book, where it went off the rails [SPOILERS]...
The killer’s final target is revealed as a Senator. And, the most damning thing about this lawmaker? He supports gun rights. He had caused the defeat of anti-gun proposals. He had also caused the defeat of a major crime bill that would also have restricted gun rights, and similarly stood in the way of an even broader crime bill that was now pending.
Up to this point, our assassin had killed heinous criminals, a KKK sociopath, and a crooked lawyer that had been enabling criminals. He was winning his PR campaign. One of my favorite mental images from the book was when a prisoner ascending the courthouse steps was killed. The bullet had passed through the prisoner, and tagged an escorting LEO in the leg. The injured officer and two others on the scene were captured on camera, smiling at the justice that had just been served.
But, killing the Senator makes no sense. First, the assassin would have to be rather naive to believe that a federal crime bill would have much effect on actual crime. More importantly, though, murder of a duly elected Senator for doing his job -- representing voters of his state -- would decimate the killer’s PR campaign. No one would support that. Our serial killer has been a thinker, a rigorous planner. Yet, this climax has no credibility for his motivations.
