Mosiacs is a who-done-it with not enough information for the listener to potentially figure out the story for him or herself. There are leaps in discovery that sometimes seem strange and out of place to the plot. Presius is just too lucky sometimes, incredibly unlucky at other times. This is not a deal breaker, many listeners of detective and mystery novels, simply enjoy the ride, letting the author lay out the story for you. The novel is violent, but the violence (and there is plenty of it) seems cartoonish and gratuitous, though not particularly shocking considering the means by which the victims were murdered.
The story is performed by D Joseph Fenaughty who does a passable job. His staccato delivery creates the necessary dark mood, but sometimes drags his sentences too long for comfort. It is recommended you listen to a sample to see if his style is right for you.
If you like murder mysteries, you may enjoy the cat and mouse game. Persius is an interesting character, with a gene mutation that gives him an extreme sense of smell and brilliant intuition. He is reckless and impulsive, getting himself in out of impossible situations. There is also a compelling love story that weaves through the mystery. For others, the overloaded plot and distracting subplots may not be your cup of tea. It is recommended you listen to a sample first.

The story picks up some time after the first one. This time Track (Ulysses) has given up on working with the police and is doing PI stuff by himself. Of course he doesn't miss the police work and his buddies, including Satish, at all, or at least so he tells himself.
Right until Satish gives him a call and persuades him (quite easily, I might add) to come back to work as his help is dearly needed to catch a new ruthless killer. Why kid yourself - of course Track jumps at the opportunity to come back and do what he knows best: investigate, and above all track - with his nose, I mean.
Track goes on a hunt for the killer, but with each step that he gets closer to him he realized that he might, in fact, not be the hunter, but the hunted. The killer is obsessed with DNA and every victim (related to a common project they were working on) is but a tile closer to the very DNA Track is blessed with.
While working on the case, Track is plagued by strong pain which is seemingly related to his weird chimera genes that threaten his very existence. You know the story about taking the blue or the red pill yielding a different outcome depending on which you took. Except for Track the outcome might be the same - the delivery is what is different.
The story is suspenseful from the first page to the last. The writing is well crafted and the descriptions of Los Angeles make me feel that I'm there, watching things unfold with my own eyes. We meet again some characters from the previous book. Satish, his Indian philosophical partner who always has a story about his dad to tell, whether Track wants to hear it or not (and of course he always does) is a character that I enjoy reading about - I was always hooked on his stories, which were not only enchanting, but also carrying a point specifically for Track's current dilemmas.
While it is the second book in the series, you can read it as a standalone. Track's condition is well explained here so there are no hidden clues that should have been known from before.
