Decades ago, Inspector Robert DeClercq suffered a tragedy when his young daughter was kidnapped and killed after he was unable to save her. Only now, with a young girl named Katt in his life, can he put his demons to rest. Until DeClercq's Special X Team receives a shrunken head, heralding the return of the Headhunter -- a psychopath who left a trail of headless bodies in his wake eleven years earlier -- or is it a copycat killer? While the team seeks the answer, Katt is kidnapped, luring DeClercq away from his comrades into a deadly web of revenge!

Wow. Too many confusing characters who seem to not be tied into the plot at all. 64 pages in and I give up. Read full review

User Review  - Brian Sammons - Goodreads

A sequel to Slade's phenomenal first book, Headhunter. Sadly, this one falls way short of the original in every way and was thoroughly made of 'meh'. An OK read at best. Read full review
