After a bunch of dud books full of whiny female heroines I needed a good thriller featuring a detective with a drinking problem Measure Twice did not disappoint A really well paced thriller with an interesting which probably isn't the right word serial killer Why is this mild mannered God fearing man on a methodical and ritualistic killing spree I really like how JJ Hensley uses Pittsburgh as a character in his books While reading this book we were watching the Stanley Cup Finals NBC's footage of the Pittsburgh skyline clearly showed the the bridge near the baseball stadium that is described early on in the book Having never been to Pittsburgh I thought this was pretty neat I can't wait for his next book that will unite Keller from Resolve and Channing from Measure Twice Should be a good one

Is difficult to comprehend Channing learns the killer is patient methodical and precise In order to stop the killing Channing will have to pull his life together and come to terms with a secret that is tearing him apartWith each chapter of this thriller representing one of the 12 steps of addiction recovery Measure Twice is a story of personal struggle revenge and the search for redemptionPay attention throughout this heart pounding pursuit The details are important because every cut is lethal. Lester Mayton is a God addict His overzealous spiritual devotion at the expense of everything else in life led to the disintegration of his marriage In order to perpetuate the series of brutal murders he has planned to get revenge for his wife's death he must overcome his love of GodDetective Jackson Channing is an alcoholic His heavy hitting of the bottle after a devastating traumatic event led to the disintegration of his marriage In order to catch the killer currently murdering city officials across Pittsburgh he must overcome his love of boozeWhat I liked the most about Measure Twice is the parallels between the two characters Each chapter is given the heading of one of the famous Twelve steps for overcoming addiction and both killer and cop are given point of view passages of eual length in which they mirror one another's actions as well as relating to the title of the segment This gimmick doesn't really go anywhere and is almost totally absent by the last chapters but at the beginning it's a terrific way to meet the characters and draw the reader into their world Channing's interaction with his prickly partner Tina Lambert is also terrific and their interplay as they grow to trust and even like each other over the course of the investigation is well done even if their mutual hostility springs from the tried and true tactic of making sure that if the problem could be solved by a single conversation then they must never even come close to having that conversation In effect Channing's growing relationship with Lambert is a source of a lot of the humour of the novel as well as some well drawn out exposition on Channing's past and what has made him so brokenI didn't like the ending but the caveat here is that I never like the ending of any mystery novel As the numerous possibilities boil down to just one and all the facts are laid out on the table it always seems that no matter how diabolical and terrifying the killer is his motivations turn out to be so banal to be fair this is true of real life mysteries as well The mystiue of Jack the Ripper was that we never knew who he was If he really has been identified by modern DNA evidence it kind of ruins the entire story And while I didn't really buy Mayton's transition from charitable kind prayerful godliness to sadistic killer who is far too good at what he does to be a newbie the fact remains that as that sadistic killer he is fairly exciting to readOverall it was a fast read a definite page turner and had some moments of truly inspired imagery
