Publisher's Summary

After alleged serial killer Edgar Roy is apprehended and locked away in a psychiatric unit, private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy’s lawyer—an old friend of Sean King—to look into the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins: while en route to their first meeting with the lawyer, King and Maxwell discover his dead body.
A rash of terrifying events begins to unfold, and it is up to King and Maxwell to uncover the truth: is Roy a killer or not? But the more they dig into his past, the more they are bombarded with obstacles, half-truths, and dead ends that make filtering the facts nearly impossible. As each new theory brings a new revelation, King and Maxwell will be pushed to the limit. Could this deadly case be the one that leaves the duo permanently parted?

Why do American heroes have no flaws?

This book demonstrates precisely why I seldom dip into modern American crime fiction and try to stick with European authors where possible. Why do American heroes always have to be so perfect?. They can never be clever, they have to be the cleverest. And what is so special about being a Rhodes Scholar? It's almost impossible to find a hero who wasn't one and this book's no exception. Sporting achievement? No problem, it's Olympic standard across the board. Modern America is in denial. So many of its people suffer Third World Standards in health, education and housing and yet books, TV and film continue to portray a different country altogether. The world has moved on. It's time American fiction moved on too.

Enjoyable

A good read but you do need to concentrate as there are many characters and you can loose what's going on. I enjoyed this book.
