River City has a serial killer, but who will find him first. Will it be police detective Tower, on whose desk two of the murders have fallen, or will it be Virgil, estranged father of one of the victims? This tightly written thriller takes the reader into the dark side of River City as Tower and Virgil alternate as narrators of this gripping tale.
This is a fairly fast-paced story and I really enjoyed it. The use of two narrators added to the drama and kept the story moving forward. It reads like a candle burning at both ends and the reader is watching the two flames come together. Virgil is a father who never knew his daughter though her mother kept him up-to-date with her life. He works as an enforcer for the underworld and uses those skills as he navigates the dark side looking for the killer. Tower is a career detective with personal challenges but he takes his job seriously and his thorough and dogged in tracking down his man. As these two get closer and closer in their investigations the story really starts to heat up. This is a great read for mystery and thriller lovers.
