Staying ahead of this brutal killer will not Homicide Detective Frost Eastman has to make a decision that will end one cop's career and put a serial killer of women, including Frost's own sister, back out on the streets free to kill again Staying ahead of this brutal killer will not be easy, especially as Frost is still battling his own demons that have been present since his sister was killed.
Shack seems to be the only one that can console him And even though it's not the first, it does well as a stand-alone, but as always, I recommend starting at the beginning. One of the first things readers learn about Frost is that he is known as a boy scout within his law enforcement family.
He will always choose to do the right thing, He is dedicated to his job and will always seek the truth to bring justice to the victims and their families. The reader knows from the beginning who the killer is..
All the characters are very well developed, from his family all the way to the killer. They come to life under this author's manipulations. The story premise is excellent. And the ending is explosive and totally unexpected. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own. Jan 26, Tulay rated it really liked it.

The Voice Inside is the second of the There is a voice inside of you That whispers all day long, "I feel this is right for me, I know that this is wrong.
The Voice Inside is the second of the series featuring this introverted bachelor cop who lives in a mansion that is technically owned by a cat. Yup, a tuxedo cat named Shack lived in the Russian Hill home with an elderly woman who died. She left the home to a person who could live there with the stipulation that Shack stayed. Frost and Shack have since bonded and have become quite a pair.
In fact, Shack has a rather significant role in this book. Four years after a serial killer was sentenced to prison for life, Easton receives a strange message. He learns that planted evidence was responsible for the arrest of the killer. Now he is faced with a choice: hide the truth or risk setting a killer free.
What makes the dilemma excruciatingly difficult is that one of the victims was his sister. The killer, a tormented man named Rudy Cutter, immediately taunts Easton, and the game of cat-and-mouse begins because they both know that Cutter will strike again. Things get more complicated when a writer named Eden Shay enters the picture. She claims to have amassed copious amounts of information on Cutter and his victims and offers to share with Frost. Will Frost cooperate? We get to know Frost Easton much better in this second book.
We learn how he got his name, Frost. We find that he is a man of principle. He is a good cop who seems to prefer to work alone. He loves his brother and his parents, and he misses his sister. He also values his privacy and his time with Shack. Perhaps there is, but does she belong to someone else? As a cop, Easton works tirelessly to find the answers to put a killer back where he belongs and to protect those he cares about, and to honor the memory of those who are gone.
He jumps at the chance to make a name for himself by taking over and prolonging the rescue effort, and feeding stories to major newspapers. He creates a national media sensation and milks it for all it is worth - until things go terribly wrong.
