2011.28 REVIEW – The Hundredth Man by Jack Kerley

The Hundredth Man 
by Jack Kerley

Copyright: 2004
Pages: 307
Rating: 4/5
Read: June 3 – June 7, 2011

Yearly Count: 28
Format: Print

First Line: Seconds before one of the most long-awaited events of Alexander Caulfield’s adult life, an event he’d spent years planning and pursuing, an event marking his ascension into professionalism, a decent salary, and the respect of his peers, his left eye started winking like a gigolo in  third-rate Italian film.

Blurb: Bizarre and cryptic messages found on a pair of corpses in Mobile, Alabama, launch junior police detective Carson Ryder and veteran cop Harry Nautilus into a desperate search for a mysterious killer. With the body count rising, Ryder descends into his family’s terrifying past by seeking advice from his brother, a violent, taunting psychopath convicted of similarly heinous crimes. Ryder soon confronts not only his past fears and nightmares, but also the knowledge that someone he knows is the next target. And time is running out.

Review: This is the first in the Carson Ryder series, I had never even heard of this author before until a fellow member of the MysteryBookSwap on Yahoo groups mentioned that she was reading it and that it was up for trade. I took a chance and requested a trade with her for it. I have to say that I am very glad that I read this book, I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were humorous moments sprinkled in here and there at just the right times. The storyline was good, the characters were likeable. I’m really looking forward to reading more in this series. Highly recommended.
