Présentation de l'éditeur

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Michael Prescott, author of FINAL SINS and COLD AROUND THE HEART, comes SHATTER - a complex mystery thriller that "deftly weaves inventive characters and believable situations." (Publishers Weekly)

They call him the Rag Doll Man. In the guise of a police officer, he prowls the streets of Los Angeles and the run-down suburb of Corona Beach, seeking victims among the forgotten girls who sell their bodies for a fistful of cash. LAPD detective Donna Wildman, trained in criminal profiling, is loaned out to Corona Beach to bring in the killer. But when the trail of clues twists toward the station house itself, Donna begins to fear that the Rag Doll Man may be one of her own colleagues - one who is watching her every move.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of Prescott' s Finest Thrillers! 7 octobre 2013
Par Roger F. Shepherd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
What a story! We readers get a free education in Botany, Geology, Air Pollution, Profiling techniques as well as an introduction to forensics. Prescott is a good researcher. Some of the science left me in with a headache but I carried on and the puzzle finally came together.

The characters were well described. Once again the author has chosen a female heroine, Donna, as a target victim for a serial killer aka "the Rag Doll Man". She is an FBI trained profiler on loan to the Corona Beach Police Dept. To help solve a hideous murder of a teen prostitute.

The evidence develops three possible suspects,all of whom are CBPD police officers. The case is complicated by the fact that Donna has been intimately involved with two of the three men she has profiled as possible suspects.

Tension is created as the backgrounds of the three men are revealed. Mark Logan, a detective has become an alcoholic after losing his pregnant wife and unborn son in an auto accident. He meets Donna, begins a relationship and is just beginning to regain his sobriety when he discovers that she has been cheating on him with some one in CBPD. Donna immediately abandons her affair with Sgt. Joe Kurtz and all of lives are thrown under the bus. Logan and Kurtz become bitter rivals over Donna.

The third possibility is Ed Barnes whose wife of 30 years commits suicide. Barnes has a prior record of complaints from arrestees of police brutality. He was transferred to work in the police lab where he would have no contact with suspects.

Prescott is a master of plot weaving, so much so that I picked the wrong man for the Rag Doll Killer twice and for a retired PI of 40 years as well as having read a million crime novels I was mortified when the true killer was suddenly revealed.

In my opinion the author is a fantastic story teller. I do have one nit to pick tho being a gun nut and that is the pistol that Prescott chose to arm the killer with. It is described as an Iver Johnson, nickel plated, .22 cal. 8 shot semi-auto pistol which had been modified in some manner to take a noise suppressor made from the mast of a TV aerial.

To those who are not familiar with this pistol you can find a video on You Tube under Iver Johnson TP Series . 22. Cal
It has a 2.85 inch barrel and there is no hold back on the slide which goes all the way forward to the muzzle after each shot and after the last shot. This means that attaching any thing to the front of this pistol without tapping threaded grooves into the barrel to accept a threaded hollow suppressor is only going to work one time if it works at all. And it may ruin your day.

That is why real assassins use Rugers, Colt Woodsmen, Brownings, and Hi Standard .22's that can have partial
Slides that do not go all the way to the muzzle.

The TP Series Iver Johnson looks almost identical to the James Bond Walther PPK. It is not accurate past 25feet It is basically a "last ditch get off me gun". It was made from 1982-1989 .

Turning to the ammunition. .22cal bullets are small. They weigh from 36.grain to 40 grain. Might develop as much as 800 feet per second from a 2.85inch barrel . Not likely to have much knockdown power especially against a Kevlar vest. It would be felt, may be leave a bruise but you would still be in the fight.

However, more people have been killed with this bullet in last century than any other caliber.

All that aside, I loved the story and declare it a 5 STAR ride.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lots of late night reading! 9 octobre 2013

Michael Prescott really had me on the edge reading this latest thriller! As usual, I can NEVER guess how the story ends. This particular book had very in-depth character development, each character is flawed or dealing with demons in some way... leading us down the twisty path that Michael is "oh so" apt at creating!! Waiting for the next one... :)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 OK Read - but "Too-Contrived" Overall 8 décembre 2013
Par lplynn - Publié sur Amazon.com

To try & keep his audience guessing, the author alternately planted clues throughout the book "framing" in turn each of the book's 3 main suspects. While this technique kept a certain level of suspense going, it began to feel tiresome after a while - esp once you figured out which of the 3 had done it. Overall, in the end, my feeling was that the author overly manipulated the storyline by setting up false clues.
