Plunged into the legal morass of a 17-year-old murder case, Balzic faces a variety of cons, each offering different variations of a drug deal gone wrong, and two corpses left in a mountain log cabin. Balzic's interviews lead him to a small town police chief who carried out his own personal reign of terror over the decades--looting, raping, and murdering the denizens of his borough. In discovering the history of this monster, Balzic must now enter his very own heart of darkness.

I was referred this at the end of a Stephen King book, From a Buick 8. A quick read, in part due to it's size but more so because it takes you along rapidly with interest. There are authors who wonderfully describe the story's every detail and allow you to see/smell every thing along the way, King or Koontz. This one is more to the point but comfortably so, more similar. I picture the lead being somewhere between Columbo and Humpfrey Bogart who directly reports to the $ man in Jurassic Park and you don't want to meet the people they're investigating.
