review 1: After finishing this, I was left feeling unsettled about the main character, Jake. It opens with him leaving a bar and being accosted by two foreign men who chop off his wedding ring finger, taking it and the ring with them. He has no idea who they are or why. He is a university professor leading a normal life, he thinks, and recently married to a woman he only knew for a short time. He doesn't know much about her past. She is everything to him, apparently, to the point that one wonders why. Things heat up from that point on. It does keep your interest for sure. It is not for the squeamish, however, as it has several graphic scenes of violence. Jake makes what seem to me as poor choices at every turn, fueled by the commitment to his new wife. At the end of the novel I was ... morereal disappointed in Jake. You, dear reader, will have to decide that for yourself. I've liked the two novels I've read by Rector. He does get you caring about what happens to his characters. I will seek out his other works.
review 2: Rector should be, no must be, at the top of everyone's "I read anything by this author" list. This is his third book and he keeps getting better with every book (and since his first two were The Cold Kiss and The Groove the fact that this book is his best really says something). The book moves along at a breakneck pace and you won't be able to put it down till it's finished. On top of his quality writing, I have had the pleasure to communicate with him via email and he is a author who treats his fans the right way. A two thumbs up book by a two thumbs up author. Bravo Rector! less
