“This was a good mystery with memorable characters and a superb plot. The writing style was good with enough descriptions that you felt like you understood the characters. The kindle book had lots of typos and errors in the last part of the book which were very distracting.”see full review » see other reviews »

“police detective Louis Kincaid, as he investigates a series of gruesome murders...and is drawn into the nightmare mind of a killer. In the quaint tourist town of Loon Lake, Michigan, a killer is taking his vengeance. One by one, the bodies are found, brutally executed, with mysteriously coded death cards placed beside each corpse -- the signature of a psychopath. And the only sound louder than doors and windows being locked against evil is the sound of hearts beating in terror. Detective Louis Kincaid had come north looking for a refuge, a place to forget the horrors of his past. But now he's landed in the middle of an investigation that's more than a mystery. It's a warning of bad things to come..”LaVerne L wrote this review Friday, July 12, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“Louis Kincaid drove north to have a chance to be a cop. The interview was strange, the hiring was strange, and the police station hierarchy was strange. But yet, he liked it here in Loon Lake, the air was clean and just breathing it made him feel happy.
The first to die was Detective Pryce; a cop killer is roaming the streets and byways of Loon Lake, but why? Louis begins to investigate his murder, to find the motive, to find the killer. But this will not be the only body in this investigation, quickly more follow. The twists and turns of the investigation are many, and for each answer found another pops up.
The mystery is multi-faceted, the characters are diverse and the dialogue is impossible to turn away from. I could not set this book down.

“A Super mystery with lots Snow. Can't beat that!
My long time friend gave this book to read. He knew that I enjoy a good mystery and according to his view this book was just a super read. When I finished the book I was a bit sad that the main character Detective Louis Kincaid had left me. I'll just have to read more of P.J. Parrish's books to find out what he has been up to. I thought that the author kept all different scenarios that were taking place in a logical order and that made the read a very enjoyable experience. If you are like me and enjoy a mystery that revolves around freezing winters, snow then this author will make you feel like you are right in the midst of Michigan's cold climate. The story moved along at a brisk pace and before I knew it I was finished. Overall, just like my neighbor told me, this book is a super read. ”
“This took a while to get into, but it turned out OK. The scene had changed since the first book and I was looking forward to the change. Rural Michigan was a good setting, but many of the characters were not likable. Louis seems like he is not a good policeman ina department setting. He would do better to set up a detective company for himself. ”Rick B wrote this review Thursday, December 16, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
