The desperate father of a missing child, ignored by the authorities and abandoned by his community, turns to Theo for help. The only clues are children's drawings and an inner-city urban legend about someone called the Toy Man.
To unravel the mystery behind the Toy Man, Theo must set aside his scientific preconceptions and embrace a world where dreams and nightmares carry just as much weight as reality. As he becomes immersed in the case, he discovers a far-reaching conspiracy - one that hasn't yet claimed its last victim.

Excellent follow up to The Naturalist...
This author can write one heck of a good suspense/thriller. It's under the heading of techno and I can only guess because the protagonist has a doctorate in biology.
This is book #2 on the Theo Cray series. It is fantastic. The first book hooked me and I had hoped that this series did not begin with a one hit wonder. It didn't.
This book begins with an albino child being taken from his village.
Jump ahead and Theo is plagued with callers who want him to find their missing loved ones. He gained notoriety in the previous book for locating murder victims missing for many years. Now a man approaches Theo and asks him to locate his son's murderer from 10 years ago.
Whet Theo finds after agreeing is horrifying. He locates the house in South Central LA that has bones of children rising to the surface of a yard 17 bodies are found.
Using a computer is program he wrote he's able to find a pattern in a killer that children have called the Toy Man.
This book is written at a fast pace. I've been waiting with bated breath since The Naturalist came out. I was not disappointed, the book is fantastic. I can not wait for the next.
Will Damron does an outstanding job narrating. His portrayal of women is great!
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Immensely entertaining suspense mystery, but...
...do not take the science seriously; it is mostly a product of the author's imagination. Looking Glass in Book 2 on author Andrew Mayne's The Naturalist/Professor Theo Cray series. This novel is about the hunt for a prolific serial killer known as Toy Man. The novel is far less plausible than, but just as entertaining as, The Naturalist, Book 1 in the series. Unlike Mayne's Jessica Blackwood FBI series, The Naturalist series does not include supernatural characters like warlocks, witches, ghosts, zombies, etc. Will Damron's narration of this book is outstanding.
