Sonora Blair is not your typical crime heroine for one she's a single mother who has an ulcer and posesses no particular specialist skills, unlike Reichs' Temperance or Cornwell's Kay Scapetta. What Sonora Blair does have in spades is bulldog tenacity when it comes to solid policing and catching the killer.
What I admired about this novel in particular are the lovely touches of humour from Sonora especially regarding her kids that lighten, at times, grim crime scenes and emotional turmoil. Unusually Sonora is up against a female serial killer that they have dubbed Flash due to her penchant for trapping her male victims and setting them on alight to burn them to death.
Flash has fixated on Sonora and a tense game of cat and mouse begins as Flash taunts Sonora after she is assigned to investigate Flash's first kill, hinting that the true target is the victim's brother to whom Sonora is greatly attracted. Flash draws closer to Sonora especially when the cop's relationship with Keaton the victim's brother heats up in a most unprofessional manner. Can Sonora track Flash down before those she loves are forced into the hot rage of a killer's sights?
With lovingly drawn secondary characters such as Sam, Sonora's steady partner, the author isn't afraid to take risks with her main character. There are hints of a sexual tension between Sam and Sonora that keep the reader guessing and intrigued to learn more about their relationship.Read more ›
I highly recommend this to anyone seeking to indulge in a true fiction thriller at it's best.
