The storyline has a good plot with twist regarding to the occult and witchcraft. I was not so sure about his beliefs, he constantly didn't believe he seen so much what he couldn't explain but went for it anyway. I found his struggle a bit odd. If I don't believe in it, I don't do anything.
The end could have been a bit better would have liked to have information special about Jason what has happened to him. And if there is actually a relationship coming up with Garrett and Tanith.....no information at all in what he starts believing in...did he now changed his position to paranormal investigator? I saw the next book but nothing comes up with Garrett in the next book so for me I am finished, because it's not a series with this one.
I thought I had never read any occult and then suddenly I remembered finding Dennis Wheatley in the 70's and devouring almost all of his novels, how could I have forgotten, particularly since I had a clear out a couple of weeks ago and there were at least a dozen of his books donated away to make space .... memory
Anyway to the book at hand: Erin Carmody, a Bostonian socialite teen and student is found dumped in one of Bostons rubbish infill sites. Well, we find out later that it is she, as when the body is discovered it has no head or hands....
Detectives Adam Garrett and Carl Landauer are assigned the case and quickly find themselves dealing with what appears to be a murder linked to the Occult; something neither of them have any belief in or understanding off.
On chasing down what little leads they have they soon arrest Carmody's boyfriend, another college student and band member who appears to have gone off the deep end psychologically speaking and also has an unhealthy interest in the occult. The detectives believe they have the right guy for the murder but someone called Tanith Cabarrus, an occult shop owner from Salem turns up at the police station and gives details of the mutilation that had not been, as far as they knew, to the press or anyone outside the investigation, then she informed them that the boy they had arrested for the murder was not guilty and that it was in fact a ritual killing, that one other had already taken place and that more would occur before Samhain or Halloween to you and me.
There is no record or reports of a previous murder of this type in the system and clearly the detectives are more than a little sceptical of this walk-in witness......
This is a complicated thriller, mainly for the characters, doubtful and disbelieving detectives with one having his whole belief system challenged the other totally dismissive of an occult connection and with an arrest in his pocket and all the evidence pointing to a conviction. The Assistant DA, the girlfriend of the doubting Thomas detective not wanting anything to get in the way of securing that conviction, a conviction that will turn her and the arresting detectives into superstars, and his confusion and turmoil as he is assailed with information from Tanith Cabarrus that he just can't bring himself to believe is true.
It turns into a bit of a rollercoaster and a race, with Garrett putting his life and career on the line. His partner in a coma and three more lives at stake, can he put his prejudices aside and can he stave of the suspension long enough to get the job done..........
