With so little to go on Jack and Bigfoot have their case cut out for them and it will be a fight till the end to find the killer.
This is a great, fast- paced police procedure with well written characters. I especially enjoyed the witty banter between Jack and his partner Liddell.The only complain I have was that there were too many characters to keep track of at times .A little scary and creepy it’s a great addition to the crime thriller category.
