What started out as an engrossing story about a black ops type bad guy killing cops and civilians ended up so anti-climatically that I swore off this author forever. It was like the publisher decided the book was getting too long, so the last couple of chapters that described specifically the personality and motivations of the evildoer were chopped off. Too much in-depth description of trivia also bloated this mediocre police procedural.
Words form the heart, sound forms the soul, intrigue forms the mind.
Probably around the top 20.
The snow storm and the when they were closing in on a suspect. A good description and feel for what it is like to work in and around the very bad weather that can happen in New Mexico.
The scenes between Kevin and his Srgt. Este.
There was a death near the end that was so sad and avoidable. All the wrong choices led up to it and it affected everyone.
