Publisher's Summary

Washington, embroiled in the mid-term elections, didn't want to hear about serial killings. But when the newspapers reported a 4th murder, when they gave the killer a name and details of his horrendous crimes, there were few people who could ignore it. Detective Robert Miller is assigned to the case. Rapidly things begin to complicate. The victims do not officially exist. Their personal details do not register on any known systems. The harder Miller works, the less it makes sense. And as Miller unearths ever more disturbing facts, he starts to face truths so far-removed from his own reality that he begins to fear for his life...

Unexpectedly profound thriller

I'm glad the blurb didn't give too much away. This could have been a standard cop thriller - down-at-heel loner investigates serial killer. But it became something altogether more profound, illuminating and engaging. Marvelous.

Intriguing!

This was a really interesting story, a little out of the ordinary when it comes to crime thrillers. I found parts of it dragged on a little bit now and then, but not enough to put me off and indeed the further I got into the story the more gripping it became. My only real negative comment is that I didn't particularly like the narrator, I found his voice a bit too dead-pan. But all in all, I would definitely recommend this!
