Plot Summary

My Review
Although exciting and an entertaining read it feels like JA Konrath is rehashing the same old stuff.  This is the third novel in which the Gingerbread Man has somehow appeared.  This time there is a little more of a direct connection.  I found myself working out who the killer was long before the ending.

On its good points Konrath's writing has developed and you can feel the inheritance from the American hardboiled detectives tradition of the USA.  The tone of darkness is certainly conveyed through the writing.  I would recommend reading this but don't expect too many surprises along the way.
