Riker's Calling by Rico Lamoureux
From school bullies to the crime-ridden streets of his hometown of Los Angeles, Jeremy Riker has always felt the need to do something about the injustice surrounding him. Just as he sets out on his journey as an urban warrior, he unknowingly gives rise to an obsessive adversary, who ends up becoming one of the most notorious serial killers the city has ever known. Dubbed by the news media as The Spyderco Killer, the methodical psychopath roots himself deep into Riker's life for the long haul, until his own madness propels everything into an intense climax.
I do love a good mystery/thriller! Riker's Calling is a very fast paced, action packed, enjoyable book. There were a few times when it lost me a bit, but for the most part I found it to be a pretty good read. I do think that the reason I found a few things lacking in the book is that it was indeed a pretty short book. There didn't seem to be quite enough character development for my liking but that is generally what you get with books this length.
If you are in the mood for a mystery/crime thriller type of book but you're short on time, this would probably be a great book for you!
