The main plot involves a rookie cop with a Mensa IQ discovering information about a serial killer, based on what she recently learned in cop school, that twenty-year cops haven’t thought about. The plot eventually comes to a conclusion after several pages of “skim over” paragraphs of superfluous information. Even with plot situations that stretch reality, I enjoyed the book, right up to the last chapter when I discovered that I was going to have to buy another book for closure to a second plot.
The author also spends much of the book on a second plot line. Bridgette has a personal agenda involving her mother’s murder. Even though a related murder occurs and she gets shot as well, the author offers no hint of resolution to any of the crimes in this book. .
Bridgette is fine. Really fine. In any situation, she is fine. Under any circumstances, she is fine. After she says she is fine a dozen times or so, you get the idea that she really is fine.
However, she walks into a dead-end alley, sees her injured partner on the ground in pain and the bad guy with a steel bar raised above his head ready to hit her partner again. Instead of shooting the bad guy, she voluntarily puts her gun down and kicks it away. Unarmed, she then invites the man to pass by her in the narrow alley while he’s still holding the steel bar. The police chief should have fired her for voluntarily disarming herself in a dangerous situation. At the very least, her partner should have refused to have anything to do with her afterwards.
This is the first book I have read by Trevor Douglas. It has many twists and turns and is really hard to put down...."because you gotta know what comes next". Plenty of suspense and curiosity and had me guessing who the "bad guy" really was....I was wrong. Does make one wonder about how people become killers and crazies! Bridgette Cash is one determined woman and sticks to her plan--good bad or indifferent. She and Lance Hoffman, her partner until he retires in three months get along but he is a crotchety old man who thinks Bridgette is just a "know nothing newbie who thinks she can capture a killer on computer information alone". He is old school, she is new age so you can imagine the battles between them.
I will read more of Trevor Douglas' books.
Truly enjoyed this book.
