I have become a HUGE fan of Peter Blauner after reading "The Last Good Day" and then this book. There is nothing better than a good thriller/mystery/police procedural that is also GOOD LITERATURE! I highly recommend reading Blauner's books.
Twenty years ago Det. F.X. Loughlin solved his first big case, extracting a confession of murder from a seventeen year old. Now the results of a DNA test blow that conviction up since the blood under the latest victim's nails are that of the woman murdred twenty years ago.
