Booklist Review

Freeman's third Frost Easton thriller finds the San Francisco homicide detective chasing down another serial killer. And, once again, it's personal Denny, a childhood friend whom Frost lost track of after college, appears dying on Frost's doorstep, using his last breath for one clue: "Lombard." But who is Lombard? And what on earth had Frost's old buddy gotten himself involved in? As Frost forages about, looking for answers in the seedy underworld of organized crime, he starts to question his involvement in the case. He hadn't seen Denny in years, but here he is playing a deadly game of catch-me-if-you-can with an unknown adversary. Was it chance that brought Denny to his door, or something more? Two things that Freeman excels at are building realistic characters and crafting accurate settings, and both are on display here. Readers will feel as though they're right there in San Francisco with Frost, and will easily be able to keep track of the large cast of characters. A twist ending ensures that series fans will be on the edge of their seats waiting for the next installment.--Rebecca Vnuk Copyright 2019 Booklist
