I didn't read the first book of the Matt Sinclair mystery. The author, Brian Thiem was once an Oakland homicide detective and so this book gets a personal touch of the life of a homicide detective. This book doesn't get bogged down with the slow arm of justice though. The author adds lots of action, on the edge of your seat suspense and an ending making you want more.
Matt Sinclair is dealing with a drinking problem, PTSD and sees a therapist and also goes to AA meetings, occasionally. Matt SInclair is one of those detectives who is extremely dedicated to his job, sometimes putting protocal aside to get the job done. He cares, maybe too much.
A case that touches Matt deeply comes his way. Dawn Gustafon is found naked, hung from a tree, strangled and set on fire. Now the race is on. This case is almost personal for Matt. Dawn was a prostitute who was trying to turn her life around.
Matt and his partner put 150% into this case. It isn't only about a prostitute being killed, but what is behind her death. So many secrets to uncover and one just leads to another. This has become a race, a race against time that could save so many innocent lives. These detectives aren't thinking of their own safety but that of the innocent victims. The author give the reader so much, insight into the lives of detectives, suspense, and a look into the sometimes stand still of crime investigation. The pace is steady and won't give you a chance to close the book. Will Dawn be able to finally rest in peace? Will the secrets be uncovered and the criminals face justice? I would suggest reading Book One first but they are stand alone books.
I received this complimentary book from the author and NOR in exchange for my unbiased and fair review.
I would give this book 4.5 STARS.
