A man’s lifeless body is found in the fresh soil of San Diego’s botanical garden. Cause of death is asphyxiation, an easy call for the medical examiner. More mysterious, however, are the tiny drops of blood on the victim’s skin, resulting from hundreds of punctures. A rabbi leaving his house for work expects a regular day at the synagogue. That quickly changes when he discovers a dead man on his front lawn, clearly beaten to death. Motorcycle riders racing along the empty streets of an abandoned military base stumble across another man’s corpse, its skin revealing long, red-purple marks of a thrashing given with wood dowels. The numbers mount. Each week another victim and another mysterious clue in a game of mass murder the police don’t want to lose. The solution rests with Dr. Ellis Poe, a religious professor who only wishes to be left alone with his books and classes. But evil must be faced, and the choice is no longer his own.

My Thoughts:
My initial thought is just this:  WOW!  I just finished reading this book about 30 minutes ago and it has been quite a while since I have read a novel so well written!  Mr. Gansky's characterization and plot development is so intricate and well done.  He literally had me involved in the story from page one!  Wounds is a gritty novel with a unique biblical twist incorporated into the story.  The detail and description of characters and events is unlike any I've ever read.  I literally felt as if I were right beside Detective Rainmondi as she is trying to solve this case.  Mr. Gansky certainly has a gift and I'm sorry I haven't discovered it before now!
Happy Reading,
