Lucas Walker is an FBI agent.
Walkers made a name for himself in solving serial killings. He's very very good at what he does.
In fact he's becoming the go to guy for anything that looks like a serial killer case.
His old partner Nielson is now his SAC. He knows exactly how Walker works and what makes him tick. He's also there for anything Walker may need. Any case Walker solves looks good on Nielson's record as SAC.
Walker is also a guy who doesn't take himself to seriously and has a sense of humor. He's also able to read expressions. This comes in handy when it applies to his job. Catching killers.
Walker is half native American through his Father. His Father was killed during the first gulf war and his mother died of cancer when he was young.
Walker was raised by his maternal grandparents and had never been contacted by his Fathers relatives.
That all changed when Walker is assigned to a case in the Sonoran Desert on the reservation of his Fathers people.
The case involves a giant drawing on the side of a red rock escapment. The drawing is done in blood. Loads and loads of blood but no body has been found. No tracks either.
Once walker sees the drawing he heads for the reservation police station where he meets Chief Antone and learns that this isn't the first such drawing found. In fact the Chief lets him know its the third one they have found. No bodies. No tracks. He says he had faxed the info to the FBI and was expecting Walker.
So begins one helluva good story.
Walker meets his Uncle and Cousin. His Uncle seems glad to see him and share some of his growing up years with his brother, Walkers Father.Read more ›
Wonderful tale. And at the time of the review, only $0.99 for the ebook? What? Get this one people. Put it on your reader now.
Once again, Michael swings for the fences and takes out the scoreboard in a volley of sparks and fire. HOMERUN!!!!!
Reviewing this one however confounds me a bit. It held me, I liked reading it, and I think it had his best main character yet. I really liked the lead characters sense of humor. The book is descriptive and I could feel the desert heat. I only found a couple of spelling errors.
But this is why I found rating it somewhat difficult. There is no real surprise to the story. The reader is pretty much given the antagonist early on, and the "twist" ending I found very predictable. The ending just felt flat, like when you're really hungry & sit down to what appears to be a wonderful meal...yet everything is bland and leaves you disappointed.
Hence why I wonder the order they were written. This one shows better character development then the other books, but overall is a weaker book. If my review sounds neutral, well I think that is a reflection of the "vanilla" flavor I got from the book. But hey, it was free and it's a fast read.
Michael McBride has a versatility in writing that I really admire. Not really a horror story, I would classify this as more of a Thriller/Crime type, with some nice slightly graphic details added in. As in most of the stories that I've read from this author, the research that he puts into his books really stands out and impresses me to no end. He is able to take some history, facts, and that fantastic imagination of his, and turn out one head-spinning novel! Just when I thought I had everything figured out, McBride took it up a notch. By the end, I was left thinking back over passages as it slowly dawned on me that all the clues were there--this story was just so masterfully crafted that I let myself get sidetracked into thinking that I knew exactly where it was headed. Another superb story from an author that will remain on my "must-read" list!
