9780099429647: Flinch

A nightmare killer is loose in the land of dreams-A murder/robbery on a stretch of beach just south of Laguna. A gang killing in Santa Ana. A young woman gunned down taking out the garbage. A high school track star shot during a dawn workout. A cook killed after work. A computer salesman found dead in a parking lot. A half dozen murders in the last month - unnoticed and unsolved. Like the note said. An anonymous note to investigative reporter Jimmy Gage from someone calling himself 'The Eggman' claiming the killings and threatening to come after Jimmy. Is it a hoaxer? The police think so, apart from Detective Jane Holt - assigned to the case but pulled off it. But Jimmy is driven to discover the identity of the serial killer no matter where the search takes him and it takes him right into the heart of danger.

Review:

"May be the best novel you'll read all year. . . . Miss this novel at your peril." -"The Plain Dealer"

"This is a world like no other. If you savor the bizarre, this one's for you." --"The Washington Post Book World
"
"What is distinctive about Ferrigno's gripping action is that it is often set in a natural world whose appeal he makes the reader vividly feel." -"The New York Times"

"Like other inheritors of the Hammett-Chandler-Ross MacDonald private-eye tradition, Ferrigno balances the tough doings with a strong sense of moral outrage and compassion." -"Los Angeles Times Book Review"

"Readers familiar with Ferrigno's work in The Horse Latitudes and Heartbreaker may have thought they had experienced the best of Ferrigno, but Flinch ups the ante several notches." -"The Seattle Times
"
"So adroit is Ferrigno's carefully layered plot . . . even careful readers may overlook Ferrigno's elegant but muscular prose style." -"The News & Observer"

"A grand read, neatly plotted with fascinating characters speaking great lines. . . . From start to finish, the reader's mind must race at a frantic pace to keep up with the twists and turns." -"Winston-Salem Journal
"
"Ferrigno belongs to a group of first-rate authors who have kept the noir tradition alive by showing the dark side of sunny Southern California. He does it, though, from the hip and with a thoroughly modern perspective." -"Rocky Mountain News"

"Hugely entertaining. . . . There are enough simmering subplots in this yarn to provide surprises around every corner. Ferrigno provides snappy dialogue, fast-paced action, flashy context and intriguing subtext." -"The Olympian"

"A carnival-ride thriller of contemporary California noir by a criminally overlooked writer. . . . Addictive." -"The Dallas Morning News"

"Perfectly entertaining." -"Arizona Daily Star"
