Detective Jacob Striker has had more than his fair share of brushes with death. But this one really shocks him. When he is called to attend a suicide at a decrepit apartment on the bad side of town, the case unexpectedly brings him one step closer to home. This time the victim is not just another sad statistic -- the end product of mental illness and drug addiction -- this time it's someone Striker knows and cares about.

Book #2 in Jacob Striker series, about -- and from -- a Canadian police officer. // From beginning to end, this fast-paced page-turner keeps you guessing about a serial murderer's identity. // Hard to put down. But, if you need to, the chapters are short and focused, making it easy to resume. // Nice to see Canadian locales (Vancouver and environs), law enforcement, attitudes, and customs described.

Sean Slater is equal to James Patterson, as both writers have many twists and turns that keep you guessing until the very last chapter. A wonderful "Who Did It?" novel.

The action starts on the first page never stops. The ending had an unexpected twist. I was sad when it ended - good read!

tight prose and perfect pacing turned this paint-by-number mystery into a book I couldn't put down, all 532 pages of it, though I'm not much of a fan of the genre
