Early Pearson writing. Detective Boldt works hard to solve serial killings with an 'inside' twist. Good read. Older book with looseness.

This was , I think, Pearson's earliest book, and his best. His later work suffered by comparison and became repetitious.

Seattle is a city paralyzed by fear. A serial killer is loose on its streets. And as each new victim surfaces -- chest slashed, eyes taped open -- the tide of panic rises.

Seattle is a city paralyzed by fear. A serial killer is loose on its streets. And as each new victim surfaces - chest slashed, eyes taped opern - the tide of panic rises. Driven by guilt and frustration, too exhausted to consider stopping, Detective Lou Boldt thinks he's finally gotten the break he needs to end the Cross Killer's twisted spree. But each new clue contradicts another. And each new corpse mocks Boldt's efforts. To fathom the silent tale told by the latest corpse washed up in Pugent Sound, Boldt has to go beyond every state-of-the-art method at his disposal. But as he gets closer to the truth, he travels deeper into the tortured mind of a relentless killer...into the depths of his own fears...and into a whirlpool of madness more frightening than his worst nightmare....
