This was my first book by Michael Kerr, and I must say that I am in love with this author. This book was very well written and the storyline had me turning page after page. The suspense was awesome and I never got bored with the characters. I read this book at every available chance that I got. This is a book that will make you stay up all night trying to find out what's going to happen next. Now it's time yo downloaded the others. This book is being rated 5 stars.

This isn't Peter Robinson, so don't read it for the characterizations or the scenery. The plot is good enough, but getting to the resolution takes a bit of wading. It's more U.S. than U.K. in the level of violence.

Enjoyed reading the book. The only serious logic flaw I noted was that when the female witness to the first murders was in turn killed, it was noted that only three people knew of her location and one of those was the chief. But Barnes and his boss did not pursue that. Why not?

Matt Barnes is a tough, hard drinking detective who is injured early on and spends the rest of the story lugging a full leg cast around. Lots of unexpected twist and one extremely evil character. A fun read.

The plot was predictable at times,, but did have some interesting twists. Character development was spotty, but it has all the elements of a good thriller,and,kept me turning pages. Seriously bloody, but worth a read if you like that sort of thing..

Since I am a lover of crime/fiction I started reading this book with some apprehension because I have not met many recently. However my fear was short lived after a few pages. I abandoned whatever I was reading until I completed this one.

Matt Barnes is an English detective who is guarding an important witness. A killer makes his way through Barnes security and wipes out the witness, a couple of policemen, and almost gets Barnes himself. Only luck saves Matt from death, but now the battle with the bad guy becomes personal. Gary Noon, a man with many mental issues, is a high achiever of a killer who started with his Mom when he was 14. The chase, and carnage created is exciting and makes for a good read.

Michael Kerr is a very good writer who has a great command of dialogue and fleshing of characters. He also makes the schizophrenic completely believable and horrible to contemplate. Action is a staple of this book, as is Matt Barnes love life, physical conditioning and struggle with himself. I will read more.

A genuinely gripping read. Great characters and packed with action and food for thought.
Have just started the second in the DI Matt Barnes trilogy, (Lethal Intent) and it is unputdownable.
