The Ugly: A major murder investigation and the lead detective decides to go on a vacation with his girlfriend, kids, and mother? No cop in the world would ever do such a thing. It doesn’t matter how much the cop hates his boss or not, there are always ways around someone like that. So, the real problem here is Cross’ boss. Either quite or request a transfer if the work environment is hostile.
The Bad: Now, speaking of the vacation. One of the major plot points in this book is the disappearance of Christine. But it just seemed to be glossed over. I don’t understand it, but I can accept it because…
The Good: The best part about this book, and the reason I like it the most, is that it’s not all about murders. Cross is investigating one killer here. It’s not a complicated story with multiple murders. Then the trial started and things picked up. It was more of a political and court room thriller than a murder thriller. It was a nice change of pace.
Final Thoughts: Seeing as how the problems with his boss has been going on for five books now, I can look pass that. I’m sure you can too. Like I said, so far this is my personnel favorite, but not the best.
No matter what he does the killer remains ahead of him.Dr. Cross, his finance, and family go on a vacation where she is kidnapped. Dr. Cross returns to Washington DC where he apprehends the killer and goes through the trial of the century, and the suspect found not guilty. The suspect has a twist in his identity.

Excellent in depth writing and invistigating by this author again
