Hardboiled LA reporter and his exlover and FBI agent chase a serial killer with MITgenius technology skills that he uses to hide his activities, frame others, and steal the identity of his pursuers. Im not a huge fan on contemporary popular fiction. Its pretty fluffy stuff, frankly. But Ill take Michael Connelly any day of the week over Sandra Brown. Its an enjoyable romp. It includes interesting bits on newspaper writing and its history, techbabble light that most people will follow enough of to keep the story moving, and little nongraphic sex. Whats not to like up to three stars.
