This gripping thriller will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Piccirilli has a knack for creating believable characters in interesting and provocative situations, and his use of narrative and flashback are top-notch. More disturbing is the pervasive violence against women in this book, and sensitive readers should be warned that there's a lot of graphic imagery, oftentimes gratuitously presented.
Flynn's a child protective services worker out on a routine call in a snowstorm when things take a turn for the bizarre: an autistic man in a cage in a basement, a preternaturally composed child and her crazed mother lead to him being frozen underwater
And what comes after is even more bizarre and terrifying. Wherever he goes, women turn up dead, and somehow it's connected to his late brother, who died 30 years prior but whose presence continues to permeate Flynn's life. (Bantam Spectra, Jul., 352 pp., $6.99)
