The teenagers Cassie & Angus have been abused and tortured their whole life. Now that they are finally free, Angus clever mind knows how to trick the likes that made them suffer so much into their trap to take a gruesome revenge. What remains is a mutilated and scalped body.

While Lieutenant John Driscoll takes charge of the investigations of several murders, a huge pharmacy mogul has his own interest to get to the two teenagers first. His agenda is clear: they need to die for they hold secrets that should never be revealed.

As nice as the books description sounds, it fails to deliver on a large scale. I wasn't particular impressed with the authors choice of wording but could have gone past that if the plot hadn't been such a boring experience.
Besides the characters own packages, a wife that was just buried and Driscoll's working colleague and love Margaret's struggles with the past it felt like a huge jigsaw where the pieces have been cut very badly.

I had hoped this would be a good one but it lacks in just about every way.

I thought it started out interesting then it just got boring and a lot of that is because the author used enough big unpronounceable words when it came to the forsenics, that turns me off every time!

Then it got to be just pages and pages of descriptions and the story just doesn't move along at a suspenseful/thriller pace but just kind of drags.

It didn't take me long to know I didn't want to spend my time on this so skipped and skimmed and then just quit.
