Lindsay Boxer has to shoot down two teenagers, a brother and a sister in an act of self - defence. She had no other alternative as the children were armed and fired first which hit Boxer and her partner Jacobi. The shooting killed the girl and left her little brother completely paralysed.
Things went awry when the parents of the children affected moved court seeking justice. It was at the same time, a series of murders appear though not in her jurisdiction. The victims were whipped and it was of the similar murder that happened when Boxer assumed charge as the officer. Even after 10 years, she could not nab the culprit. Is there any connection between those murders. Will the current imbroglio she is in would present bottlenecks in her investigation? That you have to find out.
That's the brief. What always excites me is the craft that can put the readers on tenterhooks right from the beginning of the story. You feel as if you are running with the book, with the characters and the situations. It's not hard for a reader who has been reading crime noir to spot the culprit. But what makes you a super thriller reader is when you can spot the culprit through the situation that led to murder. And it's a pretty hard task and that makes the plot, a thrilling one.
I loved it. As I said in my previous post, I could go to Lindsay Boxer to break the reading as well as the book blogging block I experience very often.
