    1. Pittsburgh, 1986: The city is gripped in a panic as a maniac slips poison onto pharmacy shelves.

    2. I read The Disappeared Girl by this author a couple of years ago without realising it was book 4 in this series. Highly annoying as I prefer to read a series in its order. However, I've forgotten a lot of that now so it didn't matter as it turned out. Think I'll revisit once I've finished with books 2 and 3.I thought this one was better (I gave The Disappeared Girl 4*). The action keeps on coming and you've no idea what Jim is going to unearth, if anything, from the depths of Sonny's memory. I d [...]

    3. So not what I expected. Right through the book I was sucked into what the author wanted me to believe and so when it was all blown out of the water, I felt like I'd been smacked in the face by a brick wall. Fantastic piece of writing!!!

    4. I originally read this book back in Jan of 2014 but decided to reread all of Smiths’ books in order this time. This book still shocks you that this event actually took place here in the U.S. The writing is excellent how the main suspect gets away the first time and then ten years later is a suspect again is the problem for the police department. Having his son involved and against his own father makes it that much more difficult to deal with. This could have been a true crime book if it had be [...]

    5. Panic swept Pittsburgh in 1986 when a serial killer slips poisoned medication onto store shelves. Shoddy police work keeps the lone suspect out of jail. Then ten years later, the killings happen again. Detective Grady Downing, determined to see the killer behind bars, enlists the help of psychologist Jim Christensen to interview the suspect's son. But the son has plenty of demons of his own, and Christensen must navigate the boy's memories without causing him any more damage. As the clock winds [...]

    6. In 1986 Homicide Detective Grady Downing blows the case of his career when Ron Corbett, key suspect in a mass poisoning case, walks free. And now, ten years later it’s happening again: random poisonings have the city and its residents living in fear. This time Downing’s near retirement and he’ll do whatever it takes to get Corbett behind bars so he enlists the help of psychologist Jim Christensen to work with Corbett’s son. Downing believes that Sonny, now in his early 20s, may have repr [...]

    7. Another thrilling novel by Martin J. Smith!I barely remember the Tylenol tampering case long ago but this novel brought it back swiftly. Every death in this book makes you think. When you go to the grocery store do you wonder w who has touched this before? How easy someone could tamper with the item and you not notice. Because of the Tylenol case we are so diligent about checking the tamper resistant packaging but read this book and then realize there are so many other ways to mess with our cons [...]

    8. A great bookWell it was definitely a great book. The characters were well established, with their own personalities. I felt like I knew the characters and I felt what they were experiencing, the suspense, shock, confusion and sometimes fear for them and their families. This book is about unsolved murders that took place ten years prior. The lead detective, who he was consumed with the case,, made some critical errors that ruined an y chances of bringing it to court.Now, the murderer has returned [...]

    9. What a thriller!!whewis one was a very good read. it had feelings of sorrow for the detective and how out of control his life was. the decisions the psychologist had to make and how that affected his family. the mother and kids of another family and the abusive husband. all 3 stories intertwined while you are guessing who was the guilty party. pace was fast and difficult to put down. great read!!

    10. Not everybody can write a good mystery. I came across this book when it was available as a "Free Kindle download" and I'll admit that set the bar pretty low. Many of the free downloads are riddled with typos and formatting errors. Not Time Release. More impressively, Martin J. Smith is able to pack a few surprises in that don't feel contrived or expected like so many stories with a "twist" nowadays. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the other Jim Christensen novels.

    11. This is a great suspense story. If you like reading books in the suspense/psychological thriller genre then I highly recommend this one. Smith creates vivid and believable characters and keeps the reader wondering from page to page "who done it?" You will be stuck to the pages of this book until you know its outcome. Martin J. Smith is a great writer. He has a series of novels - this is my first and I intend to read the others as well.

    12. A gritty cop thriller set in the mid 90s before the proliferation of mobile phones and social media. Det Downing has been haunted by one case for many reasons but when the killer starts up again he calls for help and enlists psychologist Christiansen to help unlock the memory of the only potential witness to the crime. I loved this crime thriller and the twist it contained. The characters were plausible if not always likeable. This had a realistic gritty edge to it.

    13. Great plot line! A psychologist is asked to probe a potential witness for repressed memories in a product tampering/murder case. His success leads to unexpected results, including a personality dissociation that allows an abused woman to get revenge on her husband by framing him for the killings that SHE committed.

    14. this was impressively involved as well as being pretty damn terrifying. I loved the way the story was developed, revealing more and more about each character, but still keeping the immediate threat of the killer present. Really nicely done, good concept, good flow and great intelligent, likeable characters.

    15. Intriguing enough to keep you reading.Some twists and turns keep you guessing just enough to keep you reading. Good characters that you get to know and tidbits to figure it out as you go through the story.

    16. In Pittsburgh, 1986, products in a pharmacy have been tampered with resulting in several deaths.Ten years later it starts again and Detective Downing knows that the guilty person is Ron Corbett. But how to prove it.

    17. An OK read that doesn't stretch you too much. Had good pace and the twist wasn't expected! I think the characters were a little flat at times (for wont of a better description) but for a free read off it was better than many!

    18. Great readGreat read, riveting and interesting. Will be looking for other books from this author very soon. interesting characters, good plot.

    19. A good readInteresting and kept you wondering what was around the next corner. I'll be looking for more of Smith's books. This was the first I read one of his books.

    20. This book kept my interest. I thought I knew who the guilty party was early on but the details behind it were never suspected. I would recommend this book.

    21. Time ReleaseOutstanding book. Well paced, well written and a surprising ending.Martin J Smith writes a terrific book. I highly recommend this book.

    22. Couldn't put this book down, even with it's sometimes disturbing & heartbreaking story line. A great read.
