Morbidly fascinating

Macabre in its details, this story has everything: subtle madness, dogged police procedures under DEADline pressure, forensic clues, psychological gaming, disgusting crimes, filth, action, desperation, and screaming tension. The pellmell pace is far greater than you'll find in, say, Agatha Christie, and the criminal is known to the reader even as the police grope in the wrong direction (contributing to the reader's tense apprehension). Appropriately for a wet place like Seattle, hydrological science has a critical role in this story, and even more so in its predecessor UNDERCURRENTS. (The third story in the Lou Boldt/Daphne Matthews series is: No Witnesses.) Pearson gives us characters with palpable depth, skillful writing to draw us into the story, and a good sense of place. The villain vet is creepy because he is so rational; you also feel his befuddlement when his humanitarian plans go awry. The moral of the story is that the maxim "the greatest good for the greatest number" is indefensible when a minority are forced to give something up for it.

Good to the last drop

I really enjoyed this read it was interesting and kept me thrilled the entire way through. With unexpected twists and clever turns you couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I totally recommend it as a great read especially if you are from the Northwest.

Outstanding book - dynamite plot!

One of the best thrillers I have read in a while. Tons of suspense, it constantly leaves you hanging, forcing you to read just a little more, and then a bit more still. Even though you know how it will turn out in the end, the interesting and original story will keep you plugged in all the way. Another excellent book that has a somewhat similar plot is Extreme Measures by Michael Palmer.

ridley keeps getting better

Boldt and Mattews make an unbeatable team,excellent look into forensic medical pratices,keeps you involved and turning the pages

A psychological thriller with a very unusual plot!

You will not be able to put this book down! You will read it every second you have - before work sitting in the car,on your lunch break, etc. You will be afraid to read itbefore bed, but don't worry - you will read so late intothe night, you finally will be exhausted and forced to sleep. The book has an unusual topic, but from the first page, youwill be drawn to the story. One of Pearson's best
