One of the best thrillers of the year
The wait was worth the effort as this novel is one of the best books I've read this year.
Retired L.A. homicide detective, Jack Till, is hired by the parents of a young girl who was murdered and they want Jack to find the killer.
He learns that other female escorts have been killed in cities across the country and that a number of them have the same physical resemblance and that another murder happened in the same city, each time.
He deducts that the killer becomes friendly with the escort and lives with her as he plans his main target. Once he kills his target, he murders the escort so she won't be able to identify him.
Till shows a relentless in finding who is killing these women, in part, because he has a daughter the same age. His daughter lives in a group home and has Down Syndrome.
This is a well written story with good insight into a man's dedication to his job and the friends he's made while a homicide detective. It is also a warning of the danger of being a female escort.
The plot is carefully laid out and the story will catch the reader's attention from page one.
