"If you like fast-paced crime fiction, this book is definitely for you. Each twist of the plot hits you like a jarring jolt to the heart, and each hit of the hammer pushes that nail in until the very end, when the nail finally goes out the other side. The ending will leave you craving more, but thankfully, Lemaitre gives us time to catch our breath! This tale of vengeance and romance and some of the sickest criminals around will have your heart pounding."--Killer Nashville
