They soon realise that extablishing the identity of the body and those in the photos will help to find who is blowing up the cities buildings When a body is found in a New York construction site detective Vivien Light is put on the case. They soon realise that extablishing the identity of the body and those in the photos will help to find who is blowing up the cities buildings and try to prevent futher death and destruction.
Vivien while trying to do her job is facing trying personal demons with a sick sister and troubled niece. Russell has his own troubles being seen as failure in his parents eyes. But these two know thay have limited time to stop more deaths and prevent all out panic throughout the city.
It is establised that one of the men in the photo found by the body in the construction site is a Vietnam vet who was killed in action. The truth though will be both tragic and will cause a hate that will manifest itself through generations and one that wants to show who is in control. The questions kept coming like who is the one who is blowing up the buildings? Unfortuently there were a few negatives like the ending wich for me was abit confusing and abit corny with the relationship between Vivien and Russell while the pacing was at times inconsistant.
But for the most part this was a good crime read that will keep you thinking to the very end. Emily and Jamie from Constable Robinson publishers regularly feed my reading needs, sending me a wide assortment of their titles to try. So, a couple of days later, I finally raise my head from the pages, and it Crime fiction is not my favourite genre, but when it is done well, I really do enjoy it.
This is a very cleverly written novel, with a wide cast of characters who at first seem to have nothing whatsoever to link them, as the story unfolds, these characters become more and more entwined within this gripping story. There is a serial killer on the loose. A serial killer with a difference - the police are aware that there are buildings in New York city that have mines in their foundations - they were put there at the time of construction and someone, somewhere is making sure that they are detonated.
Vivian Light is the policewoman in charge of the investigation and the chase to find the killer and what follows is a superbly crafted thriller with red-herrings, twists and unexpected events galore - keeping the interest of the reader throughout the story. An unpredictable story line, an astounding ending and some really realistic characters - added to a sense of tension that is almost unbearable towards the end, this novel is a real triumph of a thriller.
