Detective John Ramos and Detective Beth Harper have many successful cases to their names and they are known for their incredible teamwork and positive outcomes. The duo has solved some of the most difficult homicide cases, so it makes sense for them to take up the new case that is terrorizing Los Angeles. A dangerous man is on the loose and he is killing people with such precision that no one can trace the murders back to him. However, when Beth and John get a breakthrough, they are surprised to find someone who could help them find the killer. Can they catch the killer in time, especially when their own lives are at stake?

The List: Rico's Revenge by Larry Horn is a murder mystery that had me interested from the moment I read the blurb. The characters were very well rounded and well developed. The author gave them plenty of page space to evolve and plenty of opportunities to have them find their individual paths in the story. I enjoyed the chemistry between Detective John Ramos and his partner, Detective Beth Harper. They made a team that respected each other and gave importance to each other’s decisions. I also enjoyed the mystery as well; the author handled the plot and the individual storylines of the characters while at the same time keeping the mystery alive. There was never a moment where I felt that the story was lagging or lacking in any aspect. I could not guess how the story would end, no matter how hard I tried and how obvious I thought it was. A brilliant mystery that kept me guessing. This novel deserves each of these 5 stars!
