    Someone is killing women in the Chelsea nieghborhood of Manhattan - but, who? The only clues: a signature heart carved into each victim's breast (inside, the initials "J.C." and those of the deceased); copies of the New Testament (with underlined passages referring to infidelity); and fingerprints of a juvenile arrested in the 1960s. On the case is Matt Davis, a plodding but effective NYPD homicide detective who is addicted to fly fishing - and chocolate.

    As the Twig is Bent: INTENSE!

    Great storyline...a bit graphic at times. I also enjoyed the development of the individual characters.

    Young girls are coming through a pastoral Upstate New York fishing village - but, they aren't all coming out alive! Following a close brush with death as an NYPD homicide detective, Matt Davis has taken early retirement, and accepted a position as Chief of Police in a small, rural Upstate New York village. While out fishing on his favorite stream, he stumbles across the remains of a body, barely recognizable as human, killed approximately six months earlier.

    My first Matt Davis, now I have to read the rest.

    Absorbing writing style.

    While in prison, Ron Trentweiler, a petty thief, is befriended by an itinerant preacher and gets "religion." Upon his release, he founds a small, storefront Pentecostal-style church in his native, rural Alabama. Enter Winona Stepp, a visitor at one of his services who seems to know all about "Brother Ron," as he has taken to calling himself, yet insists upon keeping her own past to herself. Things go smoothly for the pair, that is until Winona suggests using venomous snakes in their "act" and all hell breaks loose.

    Suspense pulls you from one chapter to the next!

    Yes, I will listen to it again in a couple of months just because it is fun to listen to a suspense story unfold as only Joe Perrone Jr. writes it. I..Show More »
