I listen to my books while working, and I work alot!, love Detective, Dystopian, Science fiction, Fantasy, U/F, PNR and Steam Punk.
Took me a while to get into this one, I found it rather depressing and dismal, there was little or no light relief at all.
It's gruesome and dark throughout, despite this I was pulled in - albeit reluctantly, which is the mark of a good book in my eyes. All the way until three quarters the way through I had this pegged as a three star, till towards the end our author builds the tension to an intolerable level I thought I was going to scream with the tension.
Loved the antag priest character and the fact that Rosen was such a plain down to earth character, no bells and whistles just a guy trying to catch a killer..
Recommended if you like it dark and the protag fighting impossible odds....
