"As Detective Zapotec's story opens, the scene is a brawl, and Simon Vance's graceful narration seems slightly at odds with the situation. However, as the life of the broken-down South African detective unfolds, Vance's soft-spoken style allows the depths of his character to come through. On the surface, Meyer's novel is about the search for a missing will, but it turns out to be more about the revitalization of the investigator. As he crosses paths with a serial killer and a conspiracy, things take several violent turns. There's also detail on sexual encounters and sexual violence. It may be too intense for some, but Zapotec makes an intriguing protagonist. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
