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.

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...

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.

Together they must track down a physopathic killer who's been abducting beautiful young women from the malls of Orange County.Dubbed the Purse Snatcher for the chilling way he he brags about his shockingly distinctive crimes, he is T> Jefferson Parkers most original creation yet

Another great book by Parker (does he write any not great ones?). This one has an unlikely team of detectives but somehow he makes it believable and works wonders with character development. Surprise and somewhat upsetting ending but even that works. Highly recommended police procedural mystery.
