In some ways a sad book, but very engrossing mystery. Enjoyed it quite a bit. I am not generally a fan of "series" but would like to read a follow up...

WELL YOU SHOULD, Tim is a semiretired veteran cop starting a death sentence-his own,Detective Merci he is young enough to be his daughter together they track down a psychopathic killer who's been abducting beautiful young woman from malls of Orange County ,Dubbed the purse snatcher , this is a very good book , it will keep you on your toes for sure, A cant lay it down type of who done it ? But with more to go !!!
Excellent. You'll remember this book long after you finish. Read in order: "Blue Hour", "Red Light" and "Black Water". You'll enjoy them more because some of the characters flow from book to book and sometimes you need to know about their past to fully appreciate their stories.
It was refreshing to read a mystery with an older protagonist. The characters are so well drawn that I was completely absorbed in this book and hated for it to end.
If you like fast action and characters you actually care about then check this one out.
