It is barely a crime - just the theft of a single pack of gum. But each crime that follows is bigger, and each accompanying note promises the next crime will be even worse.
When FBI Special Agent Dagny Gray is asked to investigate the gum thief’s fifth crime, a bank robbery, it seems like an intriguing case. However there is nothing funny about the double murder that follows. Special Agent Gray becomes part of an unlikely trio of three investigators competing to stop the escalation of crimes, often with unconventional tactics.
Bent on justice, hobbled by the Bureau, and burdened by personal demons, Dagny Gray races to untangle the meaning behind the gum thief’s madness. Can she catch him before he reaches the cataclysmic finale of his escalating spree?

Tedious and dull
- Carole "Mystery lover from waaaay back when.... Especially love those dark police/detective procedurals and the comic caper. I'm pretty tough as a reviewer. Writing must be smart and well-edited. Plots must be credible and a bit of twistiness and surprises are always welcome. Favorite authors [partial list]: Donald Westlake, Tana French, David Rosenfelt, Ruth Rendell, Ed McBain,"
Great story, interesting narrator
great book. great ending
Yes, I enjoyed it a lot
The ending is worth waiting for. the book can feel a little dragged out, but in the end lots of what seemed pointless descriptions and information adds up to a great story.
