Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explosive. Pulse-pounding. Heart-racing. From the bestselling author The Wall Street Journal hails as “one terrific writer,” Midnight Rambler is the breakout thriller of the year-a brawny, brainy novel of suspense that pairs James Swains trademark smooth-as-silk prose with a plot bigger and bolder than anything hes done before.

In South Florida, Jack Carpenter is infamous. Hes the cop who busted the notorious serial killer Simon Skell-aka the Midnight Rambler-and sacrificed his badge and marriage in the process. Haunted by the Skell case, Carpenter now works as an abduction specialist in Fort Lauderdale, reuniting families with their missing children.

But the body of one of the Midnight Ramblers victims has just been uncovered-and forensic evidence suggests Carpenter jailed the wrong man. With Skell just days away from release, the tarnished hero must reopen the case that shattered his life and the lives of eight murdered women.

As waves of heat and rain wash over the steamy streets, Carpenter races against the clock to reaffirm the case against Skell. Yet the deeper he digs, the more he starts to realize that Skell is just one piece in a terrifying puzzle of predation and murder, just one player in a shocking conspiracy that ranges across the state of Florida. And as the relentless Carpenter draws the net tighter, his enemies prepare to spring a devastating final surprise.

From the seaside bar that Jack Carpenter calls home to the glittering tourist kingdom in Orlando to the funky jungle of Coconut Grove, James Swain unleashes a wild ride into the heart of evil-with the Rolling Stones “Midnight Rambler” as the throbbing, terrifying soundtrack.

From the Hardcover edition.

Is it the worst mystery I've ever read? No. But it epitomizes everything that leads to people discounting the genre as serious literature. The characters become charicatures, and the coincidences come fast and furious to end the book. Pretty weak.
