Synopsis

Haunted by the girl he couldn’t save in his youth, and the murder he committed to avenge her, Detective Track Presius has a unique gift: the vision and sense of smell of a predator. When a series of apparently unrelated murders reel him into the depths of genetic research, Track feels more than a call to duty. Children are dying, children who, like himself, could have been healthy, and yet something, at some point, went terribly wrong. For Track, saving the innocent becomes a quest for redemption. The only way he can come to terms with his dark past is to understand his true nature.

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s Review***
My compliments to the author for getting the science right. (I had to do extensive research of the human genome for one of my own.)
Track is so nicknamed because he can ‘track’ like a bloodhound would. In addition his eyesight is exceptionally good. These two things make him a very good detective but the trouble is the he could hardly go into the witness box and say, “Yes, Your Honour, that is the man: I smelled him on the victim’s clothing!” He and his partner have to gather evidence the old fashioned way and the two connected cases in the story tax their abilities to the limit. As well as catching a murderer, they have to find the cause of a dozen children dying of leukaemia. Any fact Track has, you the reader also have, so you will detect with him right to the end, and then, like me, look forward to the next one.
