These books just keep getting better. Nastiest villain so far. And I do mean naaasty and his hit man is the stuff of nightmares. If you find spiders to be unsettling, you are really in for a treat. I found myself brushing imaginary webs off my arms during this one several times. Parker and his friends Angel and Louis may be over their heads in this one as they go up against a well connected ostensibly religious cult that uses murder as one of its main ways of keeping its power base in line.
I found the historical aspects of this installment to add a whole new level of interest—a fascinating history of religious cults/religious communities is woven into a relentless story line.
And again, I bought the 4th book before I finished this one.
