3.0 out of 5 stars A decent read but perhaps not a compulsive page-turner, 21 May 2013
This review is from: Burning Man (A Gideon and Sirius Novel) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The detective (Gideon)in this tale is a victim of a previous severe burning, sustained in pursuit of a serial killer. He is now back at work, having convinced the relevant authorities that he is fit and well enough to do so - despite still experiencing severe symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. First day back on the job and a new-born infant is found dead having been abandoned by her mother for reasons unknown and, to cap things off, a college sports star is found dead and crucified to a tree. Throughout the story Gideon's 'partner'- an intuitive and loyal police dog - watches over him and seems telepathically linked to his thoughts and emotions. The two investigations do not converge towards the end of the book as one might expect, they remain two entirely different cases linked only by Gideon and his emotions. The story is quirky and different but some of the circumstances which lead to Gideon solving the cases are a little bit unlikely and difficult to take seriously. An enjoyable book but not really a thriller.
