In Zyklon by John Hazen, Francine Vega, a local television reporter for Action 6 News, investigates crimes in her area: from the execution of members of the cartel to the possible presidency of the sly Reverend McKenzie, who has a bad habit of blaming others for society’s injustices and using religion to back his claims with a high amount of success. Worse still for Francine, there is the possibility that an innocent man has been executed for murders he did not commit, which could mean the Zyklon Killer is still at large. Can Francine find the information she needs before another murder is committed? Will the Reverend win the presidency based on his socialist fame? Is it even possible that a local reporter can dig up enough evidence to solve these problems?

Zyklon by John Hazen is an action-packed story with a twisting plot that keeps the reader turning the pages to see what is going to happen next. The characters are very well developed so that each person is individual and unique with a distinct personality of their own. I love how Hazen makes the reader think that a problem is over, then throws a curveball that opens up a whole new line of questions. My favorite thing about Zyklon is the way the story is told. I love how Hazen gives the details so vividly that the reader feels like they are riding along with Francine as she searches for answers to all of her questions. I recommend Zyklon to anyone who loves a highly developed mystery that takes investigations, crime, and punishment to a new level of excitement.
