***For Mature Readers***
Eyes scanning, searching, the predator sits motionless in a parking lot. His next victim is only feet away. Within hours a backwater south Georgia county will be rocked by two seemingly unrelated murders that signal the arrival of a serial killer in the rural southland.
Hunting the killer and preventing the next brutal murder falls to a plainspoken country deputy and two agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI). The chase leads north from the swamps along the Florida line to the foothills of the Appalachians.
GBI agents Bob Shaklee and Sharon Price know that Deputy George Mackey is a natural hunter and if anyone can find the sadistic killer, Mackey can. But Mackey, haunted by his own demons can only wonder if he will be late again. It is his greatest fear.
My Thoughts and Review
I have to say this was a very good thriller book and for a first novel job well done Glenn.
The author pays a lot of attention to detail in this book, crafting each character so that you feel like you know them personally. He lays out the bad guy Lylee for you and you can just about see his crimes through his eyes from the authors writing. Its like you can feel what the victims went through.
Each character has their own storyline within this book and I like how he goes back and forth between each characters ongoing life story but yet they all work, they flow seamlessly into the makings of a very great murder, who don't it, Good cops chasing the bad guy and even a hero or two in there.
I have to say that my favorite character of course was Deputy George Mackey I could feel his guilt and driving need to catch this bad guy. And I really loved how he even wrote in a really down right mean Sheriff only out to protect his position with an upcoming re-election and had him gunning for Deputy Mackey throughout the entire story. But trust me when I say he gets his in the end.
