This is really a cut above average for the thriller/police procedural mystery genre. It is the story of a cunning pair of serial killers who kidnap victims and hold them for ransom in the storm drains beneath Los Angeles. The two heroes of the book are very likable characters and the villians are scary and convincing. Great book, now I'm out to find more by this author.
A January downpour descends on LA. For a faceless kidnapper playing for million-dollar stakes, its part of the game. So are the storm drains coiling under the city. If the ransom isnt paid, this is where it ends for his victims-handcuffed and drowned, washed out of the drainage lines like garbage. They call him the rain man.
