Publisher's Summary

The hunt for a killer in San Francisco becomes a dizzying game of cat and mouse in a thrilling novel of psychological suspense.

“Lombard is your Moriarty, Frost. Taking him down will be the most dangerous thing you’ve ever done.”

San Francisco homicide detective Frost Easton hadn’t seen his estranged friend Denny in years. Not until he dies in Frost’s arms uttering a final inexplicable word: Lombard. Denny appears to be the latest victim in a string of murders linked by a distinctive clue: the painting of a spiraled snake near the crime scenes. Is it the work of a serial killer? Or is Denny’s death more twisted and personal?

To find the answer, Frost reaches into a nest of vipers - San Francisco’s shady elite - where the whispered name of Lombard is just one secret. Now, drawn into a cat-and-mouse game with an enemy who knows his every move, Frost finds there is no one he can trust. And somewhere down the crooked streets of the city, Frost’s cunning adversary is coiled and ready to strike again.

A very crooked street it is!

Talk about twists and turns; this book is full of them! And then the ending blows me away! I'm still asking what just happened; I was suspicious but didn't see that coming! There has to be a sequel and it better be soon!
Although a little slow in the beginning, the plot picked up as more people died and you still didn't know who the head bad guy was! At least the protagonist was as confused and taken in as I was!
So glad I stuck with it! Not so fond of the narrator; the changes of voices was just not suiting to the characters.

Still finding his way

I like this series but it requires a healthy amount of suspension of disbelief. This book goes deep into conspiracy territory and doesn't really resolve it satisfactorily by the end of the book. He is setting up a Moriarty figure (a direct quote) for Frost so the mystery falls a little flat at the end.

The whole romance angle feels forced and formulaic but at least it doesn't get in the way of the main plot.

Brilliant

Just briliant..
Really enjoyed all the 3 books but i wish there was a 4th !!!! Is there one to come i hope ???
I just love Shak, the books wouldnt be the same without him and Frost deserves to live in that house together for many years to come and what about Tabby ? Maybe she will have second thoughts ????I
I certainly didnt see Fox coming though, what a twist that was.
All in all a great 3 books and personally i think you should read them all because you then have the background of the main characters.
I am certainly going to look for more books by this author but these 3 will take some beating
