BOOK REVIEW: THE SKIN GODS
Think about settling down for a quiet, relaxing evening at home. Put a classic movie that you've picked up from the video store in the VCR and sit back for an entertaining evening. But suddenly the scene in front of you is not the scene from the movie but an actual murder taking place on your TV in your living room.
Philadelphia homicide detectives Jessica Balzano and Kevin Byrne are desperately looking for the maniac that is creating these videos. These partners are faced with dealing with the families of the victims and trying to unravel the thread that connects the victims to the murderer.
Detective Byrne is also dealing with the fact that Julian Matisse a ruthless killer has been set free based on a technicality. Still not recovered from an on the job injury Kevin Byrne goes back to work to get close to the facts and hopefully get Matisse back in jail or out of commission entirely.
Byrne and Balzano first teamed up in The Rosary Girls and they work well together in chasing down The Actor, a mad man who is documenting his madness on videotape. Although they are lead in many different directions the final outcome will come as a big surprise.
