Review: The Murder Code by Steve Mosby

  • Hardcover: 368 pages
  • Publisher: Pegasus (December 7, 2013)
  • ISBN-10: 1605984884
  • ISBN-13: 978-1605984889

Detective Andrew Hicks and his partner, Laura Fellowes, are investigating a series of seemingly random and brutal killings. Hicks is the kind of cop who prides himself on always seeing the pattern to crimes, even if the reason seems ridiculous to others.  This time, he can't find it. The murders appear to be totally random and a letter from the killer claims they are. He has to find the code somehow. At the same time, he is conflicted about the baby his wife is soon to have and his own past which haunts him.

The characters are complex and interesting and are what drive the story forward. It is also a story that makes you ponder the nature of chaos and randomness.  Hicks is multifaceted and not your usual tormented cop.  His partner Laura, is a great foil and contributor and I would have like to have seen more of her.

I really enjoyed this book and will certainly read more in the series.
