Character development is everything in a novel and Detective Jeremy Fisk the main character has his challenges cut out for him right off the start when he finds our he has had his name and addressed released by Wiki leaks. He immediately is on the run and has to move from his home in fear of retaliation for his life all while trying to catch a serial killer/sniper nicknamed “The Yodeler”. This book is a one step ahead of the good guy kind of books where you never know what will happen or who will be killed each day as “The Yodeler” seems to be killing at random. Question is are they really killings at random or are they related to each murder in some way. Detective Jeremy Fisk has to put all the clues together from Drones, to type of specific bullets or any other information needed to hunt and catch this Killer.
The book starts out by filling in all background of Jeremy Fisk and where he is at in his stage of life by fleeing his place of residence due to his and many other Detectives and agents personal addresses released via Wiki Leaks. He has to track down the individual who released that information as well as try to catch this serial killer who has yet to be discovered by the media
This book starts out a little slow as it fills the background of Detective Jeremy Fisk and how his background and life in general is turned upside down from his personal address and information released via Wiki Leaks to the public. I would recommend this book to any police, detective and murder mystery genre style. My rating is a 4 out of a 5 star rating as this book has a great storyline, but is a bit slow to start any action over the first few chapters. Each chapter doesn’t give any name or number of the chapter, yet just flows from one chapter then a break then into the next chapter and has book one, two and three within.
