From the Back Cover
When Detectives Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro agree to protect the son of a prominent psychiatrist they soon find bodies are piling up around them. What's more, all the clues point to an unlikely suspect - a serial killer who has been in prison for twenty years, so he can't be killing again, can he?
As the duo try to find out what kind of human being could perform such horrifying acts of mutilation, torture and dismemberment, they discover that the killer's motive is disturbingly rooted in their own past. In a series of heart-stopping climaxes that grow ever more bloody, ever more terrifying, the two detectives work frantically to capture the killer before they become victims themselves.

I think the most notable thing is how urban it all feels. I live in the suburbs, far away from the city in a small town. This book made me afraid to be in a city from a distance, while I read it.
It also had another great element to it, constant surprises. Only in the end is the tale spread out and it's hard to believe. If you have time to kill, buy this book.
Now for that short summery. Patrick and Angie help a friend-of-a-friend who is being blackmailed by gangsters. But after days of tailing their client's son and finding nothing that stands out, it seems to be turning into a wild goose chase. But then all that changes when Patrick links their investigation to the death of an old neighborhood friend.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a good mystery but especially to those who like to step into the darkness of the human heart. This one is especially for those who like Stephen King and Thomas Harris. And you thought "A Drink Before The War" was raw and gritty? This one will redefine raw and grit.
The second in the series is good but IMO not as good as the first, not unusual for any series. I will keep reading them though
