Publisher's Summary

Homicide Detective Stanford Carter uses Zen meditation to deal with the gruesome crimes of humanity. But his composure is severely tested when an unfaithful husband and stripper are not only murdered but showcased for their immoral lives. To test his mettle further, department policy is jeopardizing his romance with his CSI colleague Jill Seacrest. Marrying colleagues is prohibited, and Carter must either end his romance or have Jill put in for transfer. 

The private detective hired by the family of the victims becomes the only suspect. Carter theorizes someone with knowledge in law enforcement is responsible for leaving clean but disturbing crime scenes. Further investigation leads him to believe a pair of killers might be working as serials. As Jill goes undercover to investigate the PI's social life, Carter fears he might not only fail to stop the vigilante killings but lose the love of his life.

Edge-of-your-seat-thrilling!

Yes, I am a major fan of Starta's work, and when asked, I jump at the change to read and review it. There is a writing style behind the story and it keeps this reader engaged, thoroughly. It's not just the style, it's the story itself. Enter the killing collective, and be introduced immediately to "The Silver Man". This story is riveting and compelling (and a bunch of other high end adjectives). Filled with death, mayhem, and conspiracies, this story is not one you put down until the end. The Silver man involves himself in everything, and his words are echoed with terrifying and horrifying actions. “I ask you now; are you prepared to go out like lambs, without so much as a whimper? Or will you fight to the death if you have to?” Absolutely amazing, and highly recommended.

Great Story...but

This is a very well written and entertaining story, but the narration nearly ruins it. All narrators should find out how each word is properly pronounced before speaking it!

Twists and turns

This case had a great twist to it and the ending was a heart warming one. I appreciate that partners had each other’s backs and they went for what they wanted.

Decent audiobook, worth the listen.

The story was intiguing, with many turns and twists. I was happy that I could not predict the conclusion of the story. The narration was clear, well paced, and seemed very appropriate for the genre. While I enjoyed the story, it did have a points that I personally feel could have been improved the story. The many of the characters seemed defined by other characters perceptions of them, as opposed to their actions. What we are told from first impressions invariably seemed to turn our right, but left the question of how the characters determined the personalities of the other cast so easily and also made some characters actions seem strange. A greater adoption of the 'show' don't 'tell' approach could have improved this. I personally found the use of mystical abilities of an, otherwise unintroduced, character to be a jarring and unnecessary addition to the story, and bordered on a 'deus ex mechina'. As others may find such mystical abilities endearing to the story, I did not downrate the review based on this. While I enjoyed the ending, I was left with the feeling that it was perhaps too unpredictable. Upon the story concluding, I did not get the classic feeling of puzzle pieces sliding into place; however, I concede I may simply have missed the clues.

An unexpected delight.

A really strong start by Gary Strata. Thomas Pedrosa really gets this text and brings it to life.
