Baltimore is a nice town, if you don't mind the serial killers -- the original, and the copycat -- a mimic clever enough to conceal himself with the evidence of the first. The only give-away? His victims...so young, so pretty. Not like the others.
Detective Truax sees this, but his young captain disagrees and views him with extreme prejudice. He brings in the FBI, Agent Frances Vecchio, who launches her own investigation into the Cyanide Killer. Her treachery undermines Truax's every move putting his job, and lives, at risk, and in order to apprehend a pair of repetitive killers, Truax must discredit the primary witness against him -- the evidence itself.
The premise of this story is unusual enough to draw me in and hold my interest. The writing is not as polished as it might be. This is exacerbated by the many mispronunciations made by the narrator, Nathan Glondys. On the other hand, Glondys excells at giving distinctive voices to the characters, although his accents don't seem particularly authentic. Also, his shaping of the text is a little choppy.
