Now, retired, watching the Noosa River flow by, the nightmares had finally stopped. Darian was never going back. Then three girls go missing from Queensland trains. Darian knows that the killer is playing him. He has a choice to make. But when the decision means a girl will die, there is no choice. He has to stop this man once and for all. The Train Rider abducts girls from train carriages — in the beginning he raped and tortured them, then dressed them in the rags of his previous victims and abandoned them in parking garages for the police to find.
And then he stopped giving the girls back; they just started disappearing, dead and buried somewhere unknown. Until he finally threw in the towel — turned his back on the case and the force. Girls have started going missing, from trains. The Train Rider is back — and he wants Darian to play. The one in which Darian is forced to once again confront the one that got away. There is a lot in this book that sets up a longer-haul for Darian.

Maria has been a focus in the series since reluctantly partnering with Darian and having her moral fibre come under scrutiny for helping in his vigilante justice campaigns. The Dashiell Hammett-type cop who spouts deeply cynical zingers like;. She has a really keen eye and a disgruntled spirit that I think has a lot more to offer this series;. As is the grotesque murder-spree the Train Rider conducts. Rose and Maria are young something bombshells with tiny waists, long legs and big boobs.

Rose was the escort Darian started to fall for over a year of Tuesday meetings, and in the ultimate far-fetched daydream, Rose started to fall for Darian in return. However, Cavanaugh goes more the police investigation route as opposed to the vigilante. Cavanaugh has done a wonderful job building a fabulous lead character, that I want to follow over multiple books. This leads me to one of my few complaints about this book — the background characters are weak.
Casey, Maria, the police officers and Detectives all seem like caricatures of actual people.
The Train Rider
The ending was good, if a little dissatisfying, and certainly left me hankering for the next book in the series. I have book three The Train Rider already waiting for me, but need to get my hands on 2 first! This author sounds wonderful! I love Harlan Coben so if this author writes like him I know I will enjoy it! Adding to my goodreads tbr. You are commenting using your WordPress. Ann Turner. Spider's Web.
