Book Description from Bold Strokes Website

“Goodness may appear in many forms; evil need only take one.

 The Chicago PD Deviant Data Unit specializes in the dark and cruel aspects of criminal behavior. When a serial killer who leaves his victims oddly posed starts terrorizing the city, Detective Rafe Douglas leads the team tasked to find this sadistic killer. Still recovering from severe injuries sustained in the line of duty, Rafe’s tenuous hold on what is real is further tested by someone who wants in on the case and won’t take no for an answer.

Private Investigator Ashley Scott experiences the world through unveiled eyes. She alone can see that Hell’s inhabitants are breaking free from their confines and are bringing their evil to Earth. She believes the killer isn’t human and knows she has to convince Rafe there are more things happening in the Windy City than anyone could possibly realize. Only together can they solve the secrets revealed in the killer’s brutal slayings.”

4.5 out of 5 Stars

I really enjoyed this book and the author had me sucked into the story almost immediately.  We meet both Ashley Scott and Rafe at the most recent murder scene of a serial killer and I found myself intrigued by both Ashley and Rafe.  I especially liked how the author, Lesley Davis, introduces the reader to Rafe.  She, hobbles into the murder scene still recovering from injuries sustained in another police incident.

I did struggle in the 1st few paragraph’s trying to keep straight that we were seeing the murder scene through Ashley Scott’s eyes, but people on the scene were referring to her as “Jim”.  As a result, I found myself re-reading the 1st few paragraphs because I thought I missed something.  My advice, plug along it clears up quickly.

Definitely a fun murder mystery; well if murder can be fun.
