A Different Type Of Criminal

Lucas is drawn into a case by his adopted daughter who is attempting to help a young woman whom she met out in San Francisco when the woman was busking. Now the woman is worried about her male companion who went off to meet a group and disappeared. The group seem to be a strange religious cult, but think in terms of Manson (if you remember him). The group has a dangerous, possibly insane, charismatic leader who goes by the name Pilate. The plot moves through South Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota. People don't stay in place very long - usually just long enough to cause trouble.

The novel has violence ranging from gun fights to physical attacks. Expect some people to die. There are some unlikely heroes and heroines. In the Upper Peninsula, everyone has access to at least a rifle, and many have military training. You will get a lot of details about tracking and containing dangerous criminals. There is sexual content, mainly by discussion. I would give the novel an R rating, with motion picture potential. It has a surprise ending. I am not sure where the author intends to take the characters. Virgil Flowers makes a brief cameo appearance, but Lucas takes the lead on the law enforcement side, aided by various other people.

Richard Ferrone wonderful with the delivery of the story
