A Pane of Glass by R. Byron Stockdale is a psychological thriller that keeps readers, along with police and FBI investigators on edge, trying to identify a perp who puts brutally painful endings to people’s lives. Why is the perp doing this and what is his or her motivation? The people dying at this killer’s hands are not nice people: most of them are convicted rapists and/or pedophiles and most have done their time. But the deeper investigators like Tom Russell and Kate Morrow dig, especially once bodies start piling up, the more it’s looking like someone doesn’t feel justice has been served. The circumstances of their murders closely match those in which the felons assaulted and left their victims. So, is this the work of a vigilante, someone doling out the punishment he/she feels the criminal justice system didn’t? And if so, how is this person getting the information needed to carry out this killing spree?
Prepare yourself for a detailed thriller that will give you not only a good look at how investigators work, but also will provide intriguing and comprehensive insights into the minds of good and evil victims, both before and after they have been victimized. The pace is not overly rapid, but it’s never slow: readers have time to absorb every event and ponder all possibilities, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself agreeing with investigators that just maybe they should let the vigilante continue his work. Dialogue is plentiful and perfectly handled, characters are developed as much as necessary, and there’s even some romance tossed in for good measure. You can comfortably tick all the boxes for whether A Pane of Glass should be your next read. Enjoy!
