One cop’s lie has set a killer free.
Four years after serial killer Rudy Cutter was sent away for life, San Francisco homicide inspector Frost Easton uncovers a terrible lie: his closest friend planted false evidence to put Cutter behind bars. When he’s forced to reveal the truth, his sister’s killer is back on the streets. Desperate to take Cutter down again, the detective finds a new ally in Eden Shay. She wrote a book about Cutter and knows more about him than anyone. And she’s terrified. Because for four years, Cutter has been nursing revenge day after stolen day. Staying ahead of the game of a killer who’s determined to strike again is not going to be easy. Not when Frost is battling his own demons. Not when the game is becoming so personal. And not when the killer’s next move is unlike anything Frost expected.
The second book by the author in the Frost Easton series which is as good as the first one although I could solve the mystery and see the ending from far away therefore one less star.
What do you do when you hold the power to release a serial killer from prison, morally and legally? And, in so doing, you ruin a good friend’s life and of course, know with every beat of your heart, he will kill again as soon as he can! If you are Homicide Inspector Frost Easton, you do the right thing. How does he live with the results of that decision for the rest of his life? Does he get peace of mind?
Frost is an interesting character, introvert, alone except for a cat named Shack, lives in a mansion, and only became a cop to find his sister’s killer. The same killer discussed above! Not only is this a clever and imaginative storyline but really bad things happen, when you don’t expect. This is not like a TV show where characters you like never die! Lots of surprises just add enjoyment to this story. It stands alone well, even though it is part of a series. A hard-to-put-down, exciting, and suspenseful read!
