Death comes in threes. An unresolved bloody past haunts the people of Albuquerque. For two years a killer lay silent. Now the signature killings of the Boulder Hill killer have started anew.

For police lieutenant Dakota Blackwood, an Apache who never quite fit in either his or the white man's world, Angela Janine Walker's corpse rekindles images of the killer's previous spree.

The clock has started. Two more will die. This high stakes, ruthless game has resumed. But another bitter struggle consumes Dakota's life: while one monster slowly destroys the woman he loves, another selects nameless victims to die.

I enjoyed this book, howsoever drawn out it was. Way to lengthy with repeated police errors and repetition. Hope the next is better.

At the 2nd annual Love Is Murder Mystery Conference sponsored by Harper College in Palatine, IL, Windows To The Soul was voted #1 in the Suspense Thriller Category. Barlog was a panel speaker at the conference. He spoke about the use of the supernatural in mystery, offering how he blended the occult into the story to create the high level of suspense he attained.

I bought this book along with Barlog's other book NECESSARY MEASURES when I met him at a book signing at my local Barnes & Noble bookstore. I was more fascinated by the stories he told relating to Necessary Measures, but I thought I would give both of them a try. I enjoyed Red Hearts, but it wasn't as much of a thriller as Necessary Measures. The story is good but it didn't flow as well as the other book. I guess maybe you need to be into serial killers more to really get a lot out of this one. I still think Necessary Measures is the better of the two thrillers.

What I think this book is really about is a man trying to hold his life together as it is coming apart around him. While cancer slowly destroys police lieutenant Dakota Blackwood's wife, a serial killer resurfaces after a two-year silence. Because he led the task force during the first investigation, he feels compelled to make up for his past failure. I thought the fact that he is an Apache Indian only made the story more enjoyable. Having to face the very real prospect that he might have to raise his two daughters without his wife, Dakota Blackwood, still feels a responsibility to the people of Albuquerque, despite the fact of the prejudicial undercurrents in the story. I loved the story's opening. I'm from Sacramento, CA where the original real life drama occurred that appears in the opening chapter. If you want to read something that deviates from the standard serial killer slasher yarn, read this one.

Outstanding and very well-written. Characterizations are vivid, makes you feel as if you're right there. This would make a wonderful movie.
