Addictive I really enjoyed this one and looking forward to readingin the series 4.5 Really gripping, a definite page turner. Second book in Jack Paris series from author Richard Montanari, Kiss Of Evil , is a dark, moody, and complicated thriller A very suspenseful thriller with several continual moving parts, at times it was difficult keeping track of some of the story arc elements Set in Cleveland, two years after Officer Mike Ryan,46, was found murdered Ryan was set up to look like a dirty cop Jack Paris had nailed down the case on Ryan s killer named Sarah Weiss Except the jury had other ideas Blowhard lawyer Jeremiah Cross convinced jury Weiss was set up and acquitted her Ryan s widow Delores and young daughter Carrie are devastated Carrie, wheelchair bound especially upset Moving into the present, Paris is now working on a series of gruesome murders that seemed to be linked to the religious practice of Santeria Jack is also giving local latino newspaper reporter Mercedes Cruz a first hand tour, and valuable insights within homicide department The mad man killer has left four bodies in his wake with Santeria symbols on the bodies Everywhere Jack seems to turn with this case he s stuck looking back into the long distance past Book was a very enjoyable read to be sure Paris, a contentious and sometimes irascible detective with many years in homicide, is a solid leading protagonist Author Richard Montanari s characters are as usual tough customers to be sure Mr Montanari has found that urban edge for his characters that help drive his books at very high speeds Although with this yarn, there were so many moving parts involving some confusing characters that threw me off story a couple times The ending itself was kind of odd as well Overall it s a very good suspenseful thriller I d highly recommend any of author Richard Montanari s books for serious thriller fans His Byrne Balzano series is absolutely fantastic, book after book To date I ve only seen two of his Jack Paris series books Would love to see another book featuring this craggy detective Don t miss out out on any of these reads They are a must for mystery thriller readers 4 stars out of a possible 5 stars good book. In a nutshell Brilliant Montanari is one of the finest thriller writers around today, just as good as people like Kathy Reichs or Harlan Coben He never disappoints and Kiss of Evil is no exception.
