Ego Shooter: The Depth of the Pain by Karlheinz Moll is a gripping tale of mystery and murder, a well-plotted thriller that will have readers racing through the pages. When a man is shot in Montana in broad daylight, investigators see a link with another unsolved murder. Alexander Granger, an agent of the German Federal Police (BKA), is brought in by FBI agent Denise Marceau and detectives from Missoula, Montana. As they race to unravel the mystery behind the killings, the body count rises. The killer is someone with an insatiable grudge, someone whose family has been torn away from him through tragedy. He is back to settle scores but can he be stopped in time to prevent more shootings?

One of the things I love about Karlheinz Moll’s writing is his ability to write strong motivation in the characters. The antagonist of the story is someone with a deep grudge, a character whose desire for revenge is as strong as the love he has for a family that was taken away from him. The author creates a sense of urgency which puts the detectives in a race across the country to solve the murders. As the clock ticks, anything can happen and no one knows who the next victim could be. Ego Shooter: The Depth of the Pain is brilliantly plotted, fast-paced, and filled with surprising moments. The characters are rock-solid and real; the conflict is rooted in a family’s tragedy. It is a tension-filled narrative that explores what pain can cause someone to do and the author is a pro at creating characters.
