Book #17 – The Informant

41oVTm%2B9hjL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA240_SH20_OU01_[1] I was expecting another Jack Swyteck novel, but he isn’t in this one. It’s Mike Posten, writer for a Miami paper, that really stars in The Informant. A serial killer is on the loose, and someone contacts Posten offering to “predict” murders if he gets paid. Posten says it’s against paper policy, but with the FBI, his paper decides to move on, and gets information about new, or recent, murders and runs stories.

The murders are seemingly unconnected, all over the country, and all kinds of people. The descriptions are a little graphic at times, making me twinge, but overall it was exciting and hard to put down. The story weaves in and out of a few characters viewpoints and it keeps you on the edge of your seat.

My second Grippando, and I’m looking forward to the next one.
