"... friends should be companions who inspire ...and help us rise to our be our best." Wirthlin .
Make no mistake, Roy A.Teel, Jr. knows how to write a novel that is gripping and will keep the reader glued to the pages.
The violence is graphic so not advised for under eighteen. It was actually more graphic than I care to read. I also felt that a number of circumstances were just too coincidental. One villain kidnaps the best friend of another person he's kidnapped and this new person happens to be a person of interest to another key character.
The killings take place around the city of L.A. and the three main characters are well drawn and their motivation properly described and understandable.
There were two early killings in which the main killer diverted from his or her subject of killings. One person is said to have been getting too close to the killer and another older man associated with someone who was evil but I didn't understand how. It may be me but I usually follow the trend of stories.
I also felt that some paragraphs were overly long and when two people were speaking to each other, paragraph breaks would make it easier for a reader to follow who the speaker is.
I enjoyed the pace of the story and killers being caught and made to pay for their crimes. It was also a change of pace when one of the protagonists gets involved in a menage a trois.
Overall, an excellent story but more brutal and graphic than my usual choice in suspense and mysteries.
I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
