My Synopsis: Decland Dupree has only been a detective for a short while when the bottom drops out of his world at a murder scene – he not only recognizes the victim, she was his first kiss. To make matters worse, they find another body across the street – both victims horribly mutilated. Dupree and his partner Ron Lacey set out to try to find the culprit, with an FBI profiler assisting. However, a few weeks later another double murder is committed – another victim that Dupree knows: his first girlfriend. It appears that whoever this killer is, he is killing every woman that Dupree has ever dated. Will Dupree’s fiancée end up on the line as well? And why is the Deputy Director of the FBI involving himself in the investigation – and why does he seem to be sabotaging it?
My Thoughts: This was a terrific thriller - I like reading police-procedural books like this, and found this to be a high-quality story with great character development and plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. Findorff really seems to have done his research as far as police procedure and technique; he also has put together a smoothly plotted and intricate suspense novel that anyone who enjoys thriller/suspense/police procedurals should love. If you enjoy a well-plotted thriller with great character development and interesting problems to solve, you definitely need to check out Unhinged - it’s a winner!
