Pattern of Wounds

CBR                                                                                                                                               
Wow another great Dectective Roland March book!! J. Mark Bertrand is a great writer who really presents a great mystery book.  I totally enjoyed the book, and while I was not overly comfortable with the portrayal of how the lead character felt about faith and churches, I did enjoy this story.  It is a book that is not read in one setting, and I have had many of those lately, I had to process the story.  It is also not a story for people who are queasy about death and violent murders, because those are both in this book, they are tastefully portrayed, with not alot of gore, but I would say not for the faint of heart.  All in all I give this book a 4 star rating, and my final thoughts about the book are that J. Mark Bertrand is another author who gives me me favorite crime show details in a book!!

To catch the killer, Roland March must decipher the
PATTERN OF WOUNDS

It's Christmas in Houston, and homicide detective Roland March is on the hunt for a killer. A young woman's brutal stabbing in an affluent neighborhood bears all the hallmarks of a serial murder. The only problem is that March sent the murderer to prison ten years ago. Is it a copycat--or did March convict the wrong man?
Alienated from his colleagues and with a growing rift in his marriage, March receives a series of taunting messages from the killer. The bodies pile up, the pressure builds, and the violence reaches too close to home. Up against an unfathomable evil, March struggles against the clock to understand the hidden message in the pattern of wounds.
