    This crime drama was good enough that I don t regret having spent my time reading it, but there were too many loose ends The characters were well developed, but most of their personal stories that aided the character development were left unfinished and my questions left unanswered I found myself wondering why the author spent so much time with these subplots The story ended very abruptly, leaving me generally unsatisfied.

    Not a very good book The bad guy was over rated and the author dragged the story out Almost afraid to read the next book.

    Lawrence throws us headlong into a lot of complex relationships and one really deranged serial killer Lee Campbell is NYPD s only full time profiler and he has been asked to help on a case being dubbed the Van Cortlandt Vampire The serial killer drugs his victims and then drains them completely of blood Campbell knows that the killings will only escalate After interviewing the brother of one of the victims, Francois, Campbell instantly feels a bond and wants to help him Campbell too has b Lawrence throws us headlong into a lot of complex relationships and one really deranged serial killer Lee Campbell is NYPD s only full time profiler and he has been asked to help on a case being dubbed the Van Cortlandt Vampire The serial killer drugs his victims and then drains them completely of blood Campbell knows that the killings will only escalate After interviewing the brother of one of the victims, Francois, Campbell instantly feels a bond and wants to help him Campbell too has been through tragedy with the fall out of the disappearance of his sister which to this day has not been solved Knowing that Francois will want to do whatever he can, Campbell decides to keep a close eye on him.One thing that they know they have to do is immerse themselves in the steampunk world that this killer seems to gravitate towards With the help of Campbell s girlfriend, Kathy, he starts to create a profile of the killer and what the significance is of the draining of blood.Psychologically this page turner will leave you breathless The added vulnerability of Campbell and his inner struggles day in and day out will have you fully vested in him and all the supporting characters Each one has their own flaw but what makes them eveninteresting is that the flaw they have do not hinder them for very long Another aspect that adds to the story is that Lawrence sets her story one year after 9 11 These wounds are still fresh and every character in some way was impacted by the event The switching view points gives the reader a look into each character and when Lawrence writes from the killer s perspective you literally see inside a mad man.Great read for anyone that loves a good thriller Book was provided by publisher for an honest review

    C E Lawrence continues to provide a great suspenseful thriller It is part police procedural, part profiling, and part characters trying to move on with their lives at the 1st year anniversary of 09 01 01 While this is the 3rd book in the Silent series, the author writes in such a way that you can pick these books up in any order In talking with other readers, I have found that we appreciate her use of separate chapters to explain the history and rationale of the killer s and the murders C E Lawrence continues to provide a great suspenseful thriller It is part police procedural, part profiling, and part characters trying to move on with their lives at the 1st year anniversary of 09 01 01 While this is the 3rd book in the Silent series, the author writes in such a way that you can pick these books up in any order In talking with other readers, I have found that we appreciate her use of separate chapters to explain the history and rationale of the killer s and the murders he commits Lee Campbell is a profiler but he also serves as a lecturer providinginsight into the work he does and battles his own anxiety and depression All of that is well described by the author In this novel we got a taste of Steampunk and the author helped me to have a better understanding of that movement and what the draw to it may be Did I adore the ending No Too much happened and got pulled together too fast to be really satisfying for me I found that I was left with a fewquestions that I was guessing atbut will I stop reading her work Not a chance
