For those of us who have read many of the 'alphabet series' we see our old favorite friends, Henry and Rosie. Henry had another lady friend and Rosie is still cooking. But something has changed in this book. The readers are allowed into the mind of the villain. This gives some creepiness to the story but it also does ruin some of the mystery. One can sit back and Monday morning quarterback everything Kinsey does though something can be said for the Kuntz type look into the mind of a sociopath.
I did enjoy this read. At first the action moves slowly giving the reader a feel for the deliberateness Rojas. I believe it adds tension to the book. It does pick up and we reel with the pain of the grumpy old Gus who has no way out and the despair of Kinsey as she struggles with how to help. If you like Sue Grafton or you just like suspense, you will find this a good read.
