A good serial killer police thriller, with a somewhat surprising ending.
I really enjoyed the book.

This was a really good read, although it did take me a bit to get into it. This mostly could've been because I was sitting in a juror's lounge waiting to see if my name was going to get called for me to get a chance to serve as a juror. (No such luck though.)

Even though I felt it started slow, about half-way through when I could sit and read at my leisure, it really seemed to pick up and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next in the story with trying to figure out who the killer was. I had a couple of ideas but kept going back and forth between who I thought who did it.

I think the only thing I found annoying was the relationship between Rica and Stack. She hard-core flirts with him, which to me is a bit unprofessional (I'm reading this book for the suspense after all, not the romance!), and for awhile, it seems like he's actually uncomfortable with it (until his stereotypical manliness kicks in of course).

But, overall, it really is a great read and I'm going to definitely be reading more by this author in the future!

This book was so good, as soon as I finished reading it I hopped on Amazon to order more by John Lutz. It was a great thriller that kept me glued to the pages.

Story deals with an arsonist and it might take you til nearly the end of the book before you figure it out or you might not figure it out at all!
