Author: Michael Marshall
Ward Hopkins is running scared for his life after coming in contact with a group called The Straw Men. Former L.A. Detective John Zandt is still seeking revenge for what The Straw Men did to his daughter. And FBI Agent Nina Baynam is trying to piece together an unrelated series a murders, which could be the work of notorious serial killer "The Upright Man".
An intense sequel to "The Straw Men" brings back all the main players (Ward Hopkins, John Zandt, & Nina Baynam) and has the reader guessing at the puzzle pieces until the last third of the book. While it doesn't leave the reader when an icky feeling like the first story, this one stands by itself strong enough.
Much like the first novel this once jumps between three main character's and seemingly unrelated storylines, each written in different tenses. I love the explaination behind the powerful Straw Men group and their reason for human destruction.
