Followers of this series will delight in Crais's usual mastery of twists and turns, but may be surprised at how deeply Cole's history is delved into. Pike, as always, ghosts along, appearing when needed. As does a lovesick bomb squad officer who has already died once. Marvelous read. It's a 5, as the entire series is. If Crais is new to you, what a great binge you'll have!
