Review

"Author E.E. Giorgi weaves a quick-moving page-turner that is hard to put down." -- IndieReader Review 

"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." -- Mysterysequels.com 

"Giorgi's prose is full of pithy, witty, comic, tragic, and merely memorable lines." -- Carol Kean, Amazon Vine Voice and Perihelion Book Critic

Detective Ulysses "Track" Presius just dispatched a villain at the end of Book One (Chimeras). As usual, when Track catches a killer, he pays a terrible price. This time, it costs him his lover, as well as the usual police department chastising him, confiscating his guns, putting him on leave and deciding whether or not to allow this homicidal cop back on the force. Lieutenant Gomez, at the end of Book Two (Mosaics) is once again glaring at Track with those bulging eyes, his face beet-red, yelling and smelling "of chamomile and interrupted dreams" (I love how Track identifies all the other characters by smell). "Will you ever--*ever*--be able to close a case following the usual police procedural?" Gomez shouts. "That's how cowboys conduct investigations," one of the FID goons adds, but Gomez is in no mood to laugh.

Well, I was. And I did (laugh). Giorgi's prose is full of pithy, witty, comic, or tragic, or merely memorable lines.

The cowboy image helps explain my affection for Track. I grew up on the 1960s TV Westerns my dad watched. Go get 'em, Track! Forget procedures and rules. Never mind a fair trial and the ethics of capital punishment. Hang 'em high, Track! We are Americans, fiercely independent by nature. United we stand; united, we love you!

Sorry. I digress.

Track's lover doesn't die in that riveting climax in Book One. He loses her because she isn't quite the "yay, Track!" cheerleader I am. Neither is Hortensia, the red-haired artist living along Venice Beach. Track takes her for granted, so the reader does, too. Well, hey, Hort assured him she liked it that way, and like the normal guy he could have been but isn't, Track believed her. The other woman, though, is more vulnerable and more open about being needy.

Original review at mysterysequels.com.

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.

Who hasn't dreamed of having superpowers? Los Angeles detective Track Presius actually possesses two of them is his predator-like senses of sound and hearing. But these are two-edged swords because he has them because genes that are dormant in humans but not in predators have been turned on, something that is worrying to his doctor and to him as well. But that doesn't stop him from making best use of these unique capabilities in resolving his cases as a homicide detective for the Los Angeles Police Department. From a missing elderly lady to cold blooded murder, Track uses his gifts to solve a baffling puzzle: why is there a serial killer who leaves bits of mosaic tile behind? And what did the seemingly diverse victims have in common that might have lead to such gruesome ends? It isn't a straight-forward path; it never is for Track and his partner Satish. But as the killer continues to leave the tiles behind at the scene of his crimes, Track comes home one day to find fragments of the same tiles in his yard leading him to wonder if he is next on the killer's list, and, if so, why? And what link is there to a university based genetics laboratory? Track has to combine logic with instinct as he probes ever deeper into the psychology of the killer. With his love life in chaos, Track has a lot on his plate. E. E. Georgi builds the tension in language worthy of a Philip Marlow adventure in unforgettable noirish prose. I cannot recommend this fascinating book more highly. If you enjoyed the first Track Presius mystery "Chimeras", don't miss this book. You will definitely not regret it!
