Silver medal not gold
on 16 August 2013
This is an enjoyable serial killer tale with a financial slant. The anti banking/Wall St. analysis verges on the rant and is not as well-integrated into the rest of the tale as it might be. If the financial conspiracy exists (and it might well do if most of the afterword is to be believed) the villain's actions (name avoided to protect the killer's identity until you've read the book) are understandable, if not to be condoned.
Despite the long-winded economics discourse, this story flows along and Silver is the standard female plain clothes cop/agent - harassed, single mum, undervalued etc. and interesting enough to follow as she hunts the killer.
