This is a very well-written series debut; I'll definitely be looking for the next entry to the series.

The lead detective struggles with synesthesia, which adds huge challenges to his working life and fascinating twists to his investigative technique. The book is not a whodunit; the tension builds from the questions of how many victims there have been and how many more to come, and whether the perpetrator will be caught or will implode psychologically.

McCrery creates an atmosphere of menace and chill that builds as the novel progresses. When he kicks it into high gear, hang on for a tense and sometimes gruesome ride!
