The anonymous source calls again. This time the tip leads to the mayor’s downfall, and more headlines. The next tip does not go so well. Chris arrives at a secluded spot to finally meet the anonymous source, but he finds a murdered person there instead.
The source who gave him remarkable leads is a serial killer with a grudge against Chris. Soon he’s calling Chris to take credit for explosions moments after they occur. The killings will continue, he says until Chris commits suicide. This is a chilling story with a terrifying antagonist.
Rosenfelt’s prose flows. He’s a good plotter, a good writer. Like all his other novels, this one is clearly worth the read.
While you're reading this novel everything is exciting, new, tasty, and fun, fun, fun. The pages are going to turn as fast as a water meter during the first hot day of summer when all of the sprinklers are turned on.
But when you're done with this book, having quickly gotten every last bit of excitement you could get while you were still in the midst of literary passion, you're going to ask yourself: Did I really do what I think I did?
Yes, you did and yes you're going to regret it the next day. This book has a lot going for it, but beneath the action, short chapters, interesting plot, and mini-mystery there is no depth here whatsoever, and there are many unfinished answers to important questions that are glossed over in the hopes you won't notice the books warts and bad breath while you're so enamored of the clever writing.
I loved this book, and I will be recommending it to others, but I know that this could have been much much better.
That's a stupid reason to not like a book, I know. But I don't hang out with people I don't like; why would I want to spend hours reading about characters I don't like? I'm not a literary giant, just a person who reads for pleasure.
Although it might be amusing to see how long this remains posted before a human sees and removes it.
