Rain Will Come
Paul Czarcik has been a cop for a long time, and he is very good at his job with the Illinois Bureau of Judicial Enforcement. They have great tools, including a supercomputer that allows Paul to make a connection between two murders that probably no one else would have spotted. That connection sends him on a journey tracking a vicious serial killer. The journey takes some interesting twists when the killer’s wife contacts Paul and they find themselves in a relationship. Added to that, the killer is targeting people who, frankly, deserve to be killed in slow and horrific ways. Paul tracks the killer across the country, but he seems to always be a step or two behind and never in control.
Author Thomas Holgate has written a real page-turner of a thriller. It is unlike other books in this genre in that readers know a whole lot about all the characters and their motivations due to somewhat jarring point-of-view shifts, so the only mystery in this book is the chase and the outcome. No need for red herrings here. Still, it is a gripping read and quite well written. Fans of thrillers should like this one.
