Oh man, this is so bad as to be hilarious. Picked it up as part of a scavenger hunt, figured I'd actually read it. The cliches are rampant and glaring. The characters are uninteresting in their backstories and their motives.The plot is thin, and hinges on bad character judgement. Dames, man. Never trust a dame, am I right? Those sultry, red-wearing, mysteriously rich, vague-about-their-dark-past dames.

I really suspected as much from the tagline. "And he is about to find that he himself is the target of a twisted passion... and a love that can kill." I clearly got what I deserved from this book. ( )

Wow. Another one. Told from a male perspective, and I did guess the end. But it was gripping and I read every page! :) ( )

This book was supposed to help me decide my direction with this writer. Sadly, it did establish my opinion.

The gruff, blunt, frugal detective. The new partner (not a rookie, but might as well be). The murder investigation that rattles at least one of the two. The whole set up feels so cliché it's not even funny.

I can see partners growing as the book progresses. I'm okay with that. Also, for an older novel, things are flying through the time line, since the entire book took a little over a week. There were whole chapters that could have been reduced, just because it gave too much details to things that didn't advance the plot much.

Oh, way to open a series, blame it on a cult. And one who all changed their names to join. Even better, have a character reveal a conflict of interest...

The publisher's chosen narrator may have added to my dislike of the character. He makes the main character sound so disgruntled. That may be coloring my opinion of the book.

You know, when we first met the Lady in Red (also a cliché), I suspected. Now the writer confirms, at least partially. I'm just waiting for the suicide. And sadly, I called it. Death by cop.

So much of this book felt cliché, overdone, and just difficult to suspend disbelief for, I'm not sure I want to read the rest of the series. ( )

Who knew the lead detective in a triple homicide case could have so much free time? Or so little common sense? But it doesn't matter because this has just enough pulp fiction cheesiness to make it all ok. ( )

I read this book as part of the All You Can Read challenge I started with a fellow BookNerd. This is a story about Detective Beaumont of the Seattle PD, investigating the murder of a small child. The investigation leads him to a cult-like religious group. This a good story with plenty of mysterious elements and a good leading character. I give it three stars because, while I liked it, I'm not sure I enjoyed it enough to warrant 4 or 5 stars. I do, however, recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. ( )
