Of all the Michael Bennett books this has been my favorite! It had the right mix of crime story and Bennett's wonderful family! For those of you who love crime history this book will be right up your alley. I am hooked on this series! Mr Patterson and Mr. Ledwidge are on a roll! I can only hope that the next one is just as good or better!

An excellent cant put down read. Detective Michael Bennett is trying to vacation with his growing family with the help of a wonderful nanny and a grandfather, but keeps getting called back to the city tosolve a series of grisley killings that lead to a final confrontation with the killer on the beach of his seaside retreat. This book combines the search for a sadistic killer and the attraction he feels for two different woman, to blend romance and intrigue with the search for a gruesome killer. I highly reccomend this novel
