...a schizophrenic serial killer makes for a whale of a story. Well written and well read, this is a great police procedural.
Courtney Bedell is a talented cop and a single parent, having custody of her sister's (a crack addict) 4 year old son. She stumbles into the killer's abduction of a prominent Dallas socialite and barely survives the confrontation. This makes her the only living witness of the killer. She quickly finds herself in a tug of war between her own department's task force and the FBI.
Two things make her extraordinary, her saavy as a police detective and her love for her nephew. A.W. Gray's take on the FBI is now stereotypical. They are arogant media hounds bent on taking credit for the good work of others. No doubt he was influenced by his own experience with the Feds! Nevertheless it works great in this story.
Mr. Gray's works are as good as any of the great mystery writers. Do yourself a favor, give this a try!
