Investigating the brutal murder of a teenage boy, police psychologist Diane Cheung finds her job complicated by suspicious and contrary officer Ed Hersey and comes to realize that her own life is in danger.
While I was underwhelmed with this book at the beginning, it eventually reeled me in and got me involved with the characters and the mystery. The climax of the book is quite tense and effective. However, I was offended by some remarks made by the main character, psychologist Diane Cheung, during the final conflict. I haven't quite decided whether these close-minded views are those of the character or the author himself.
