Book Review
This story was about a serial killer loose on the streets of Houston affectionately dubbed the Long D*ck Killer.  Yup, you read it right. Once you read the story, you will see how that appendage became so deadly and the struggle Khaleel had in controlling it.

The story had good movement, developed characters, a very interesting plot and an oddly enough a likable villian in Khaleel.

He was hit with - a couple of "hiccups" on his road to finding how to control his inner demons and he dealt with them swiftly. He was a lawyer and he knew how to circumvent the system. He needed to make things right especially after meeting the love of his life, FBI Agent Erica.
When it came to the supporting cast, I had a few random thoughts.

Erica, you're an FBI agent? Denial trumps your investigative instincts when you're in "love".
Why was Sully's mother the way she was with him?

I think the ending was fitting. Yes. The story could be revisited, but I think that would only work if there was some type of retribution for the murders or if it went into a new direction.
This was an interesting series and I enjoyed it.
