This is a book that you just can’t put down once you start it. I read it in less than a day. The characters are well developed, complex and multi-faceted. The story is built in such a wonderful way that leaves you rooting for their success and fearing for their safety. Gary Starta did an amazing job creating twists and turns that left me guessing from beginning to end. The book gets off to a great start with a short prologue. A guy has just killed four women and two men lead by his distaste “for a crazy little thing called love”. It’s a guy who gets angry “every time a stranger passed him by without so much a nod or salutation”. The ending is at once unexpected and darkly emotional the way every great noir mystery is. “Lost in the character” as Gary Starta writes…
