This book must have the creepiest bad guy since Hannibal Lector. You know when you go to the movies, and you think “Oh, no, they’re not gonna do that…” – and then they do? That pretty much sums up the tone of this book.
Det. Smokey Barrett is called to the scene of a horrific crime, only to find a traumatized teen who can only tell her “the stranger” did it – again.
If you are a crime fiction reader, this book is among the very best.— Jill
