    Staving off his rendezvous with Old Sparky one appeal at a time, notorious serial killer Abb Smith wants ex-cop Jack Carpenter to find his grandson. Even stranger, the case involves Heather Rinker, a childhood friend of Jack's daughter. After making some bad choices in her short life, Heather now desperately needs Jack's help to save both herself and her young son from a murderer's grasp.

    Overall

    I like James Swain and I've read all his books. This one is odd. It's almost like it was read from a galley proof. It's full of grammatical errors (in the third person narrative, not the dialogue). It has odd mistakes (like calling shotgun shells "bullets" and misnaming an Eric Clapton album). It has errors in vocabulary.

    The story is good and moves along, but it doesn't see as well crafted as other books by this author. The characters are more cliched than in other works. The narration bugs a bit too. The narrator uses the voices for all the male cops in this story that are so similar as to be very hard to distinguish. It won't stop me from buying other books by Swain, but if this was the first one I'd ever read, I'm not sure I'd keep reading him.
