"The smear of blood on the wall by the door stands out like a nun in a strip club." This and other quotes/lines in the book run through the Kindred Killers, just taking the edge off of the seriousness of what you are reading, to lighten the grimness that is affecting Alfonse and Boulder in this personal case.
To find out who has murdered Alfonse cousin. These race related killings have graphic scenes, that are heart breaking to read. An extremely unsettling and unrestful read, but totally gripping and page turning.
We learn more about Boulder in depth, which I particularly found interesting and loved this part of the storyline, such a clever way to reveal the man inside by playing cat and mouse with the psychologist.
Without all the current unrest in the world this wouldn't have been an easy read, with the current unrest it left me squirming and very uncomfortable. However Smith tackles the racial issiues with sensitivity but rawness. The bleakness of the crimes has been crafted in to an insightful novel that I hope stays within the pages of fiction.
