         ^Personal Files^

Jake Helman, an elite member of the New York Special Homicide Task Force, faces what every cop dreads—an elusive serial killer. While investigating a series of bloodletting rituals executed by an ominous perpetrator know as the Cipher, Jake refuses to submit to a drug test and resigns from the police department. Tower International, a controversial genetic engineering company, employs him as their director of security. While battling an addiction to cocaine, Jake enters his new high-pressure position in the private sector. What he encounters behind the closed doors of this sinister operation is beyond the realm of human imagination. Too horrible to contemplate, the experimentation is pure madness, the outcome of a hell where only pain and terror reside. Nicholas Tower is not the hero flaunted on the cover of Time magazine. Beneath the polished exterior of this frontiersman on the cutting edge of science is a corporate executive surrounded by the creations of his deranged mind. As Jake delves deeper into the hidden sphere of this frightening laboratory, his discoveries elicit more than stereotypical condemnation for unethical practices performed for the good of mankind. Sequestered in rooms veiled in secrecy is the worst crime the world will ever see—the theft of the human soul. 

              ×My Thoughts×

This was such a good thriller book. It was deep and dark. It scared me because I felt as if I was in a horror book loving every inch of it. This book was well written with juicy details you just can't miss. The cover was such a beauty. I like the blood and the guy on the cover looks like the scream. Lamberson is a very captivating author and you won't get bored and dull. The story was ovary the top. Very dark and suspenseful.

Books like theses make me love and enjoy the hobby of reading books and sharing my opinion on what I felt. There were some parts that were a bit scary and I had to put it down. Do not read this book at night. I couldn't sleep and stayed up @4:30 EST just to finish this book. Great books like these are always amazing to read. There were some parts that were a bit dull. I didn't really care to much. At times I would skip over paragraphs because they were repetitive.

As, I read this book I felt just like a cop. "FREEZE". The job of being a police has his scary moments and you have to sacrifice your life to help another. Serial killers are very dangerous. They make me scared to go out into this hard world we know as "LIFE". You never know what you are faced up against and you must always have caution. A scary book I might add and I don't know if I would continue on reading this book. Nothing dramatically wrong but I don't want to scream again.

Enough rambling check this book out for yourself. I wasn't disappointed and I loved the story.
