The second entry in the Louis Kinkead series. When Louis lands a job on a small police force in Michigan, he begins investigating why police officers are being murdered. Could he be the next casualty?
I thought this one was excellent and it drew me in immediately. Very well done.
An exciting, tension filled mystery that will keep you reading late inthe night!
This was a great book! A good cop story. Really like Louis. My first by this author, I will definitely read the others. Suspenseful and well written.
Louis Kincaid had come north looking for a refuge. But now he's landed in the middle of an investigation that's more than a mystery, it's a warning of bad things to come, of a terrifying journey through a town's fiercely protected heart of darkness and into the nightmare mind of a madman. This is really good AAAA+++
First book I have read by this author--very good.
First book of series - really a stunning introduction of Louis Kincaid and events that drive the characters in subsequent books. Great characterization and lots of action; the entire series is full of suspense and incredible locales both north and south.
Very interesting and suspenseful.
Another good book in the Louis Kincaid series - one with some interesting plot twists!
The two sisters collaborating as P.J. Parrish released this Louis Kincaid detective mystery in 2001. I think it's the best of the four books I've read of his/theirs. They're ALL good!
Series: Louis Kincaid Series, #2
From The Critics
Landing a job with the police force in Loon Lake, Mich., a resort town "winter wonderland," sounds idyllic to Louis Kincaid, but when he meets his chief, ex-military man Brian Gibralter, he realizes that he has much to learn about small-town proceedings. Gibralter is all spit and polish, a taskmaster who preaches absolute loyalty to the force. Although Louis's fellow officers are friendly, he begins to question Gibralter's motives for hiring him when he learns that his predecessor, also a young African-American, was murdered, a mysteriously scrawled playing card found beside him. One murder is disturbing enough in the peaceful area, so when a former cop is found frozen with a bullet in him, fear that a psychopath is stalking the department spreads. The brutality of the acts suggests revenge, but Louis quickly realizes that the killer must have studied his victims closely. As Louis investigates further, he becomes cautious even with partner Jesse Harrison and the enigmatic Zoe Devereaux. Parrish (Dark of the Moon) deftly depicts the empty winter landscape and the relentless intensity of the killer's pursuit. A suspenseful tale of a man who must question his principles and loyalties, Parrish's latest will appeal to those seeking a fast-paced thriller propelled by a cast of charismatic characters. (Jan.)

This was the first one by Parrish that I've read, and I enjoyed it. I will look for more with his characters in the future.
I really liked this book, it is written very well to keep you on your toes for what will happen next.
I'm just getting started on the Louis Kincaid series but looking forward to more of them.
This is my first PJ Parrish book, and I thought it was very well written and I am certainly looking forward to my second.
In the quaint tourist town of LOOn Lake Michigan, a killer is taking his vengence. One by one, the bodies are found brutely executed, with mysteriously coated death cards placed beside each corpse-the gruesome signature of phychopath. The only sound louder than the doors and windows being locked agaist the evil is the sound of hears beating in terror.
Good read. In good condition except a little crease at the bottom corner of the cover. On very corner my bird took a nible. But Book not in bad shape at all. Actually looks good.
I love the Louis Kincaid series!
Good book, easy reading. Keeps your attention!
