Without Mercy by Jefferson Bass
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As per the afterword my guess is, this might the last book in the series - which given the age of one of the two authors of the duo, something I expected, but still regret.
For that, 1 star extra, not entirely warranted, as it dragged from 30% till the first real twist at 50% or so. And then again shortly after that.
Still, interesting as usual and quite up to date with the extremists, hate, KKK, (neo) Nazis, militia, etc. But quite a lot in the book, while presented in an interesting way, and connecting dots, which may help uninformed readers, I was familiar with a lot of it. Nicely done, though, but not very suspenseful.
Probably more realistic for being sometimes a bit dull (real police work may consist of waiting for results, like DNA takes time to be processed, as it is stated in the book).
Still recommended, even if this is not a page-turner, like some others in the series, or Kathy Reichs.
And not entirely worth 5 stars, as stated above, at some time I might even have given 3.5 star rounded down to 3, but the ending saved it for me.
