Rain Will Come by Thomas Holgate

A thrilling, page-turning debut about a twisted killer and a broken cop—both with nothing to lose.

Paul Czarcik, the longest-tenured detective in the Illinois Bureau of Judicial Enforcement, puts the rest of the team to shame. Ruthless and riddled with vices, Czarcik always gets his man. And fast. Until now…

A double slaying isn’t the open-and-shut case of urban crime he’s used to. Connecting it to a high-profile Texas judge, Czarcik realizes something bigger is going on. It’s the work of a serial killer for whom Chicago is just the beginning. Now he’s inviting Czarcik to play catch-me-if-you-can on a cross-country murder spree.

Going rogue, Czarcik accepts the challenge. But as the bodies pile up, he must come to grips with the fact that nothing—not the killer, the victims, or the rules—is what it seems in this bloody game of cat and mouse.

What an interesting story. Paul Czarcik is a loner but part of a policing unit that does things different. Paul himself drinks, smokes, takes illegal substances, and regularly hires escorts. He is no angel and doesn’t necessarily follow the rules. After a horrific crime is committed in Chicago, he connects it to a case in Texas. The connection between the cases is flimsy but Paul is on the right track.

The story is also told from the point of view of the killer. When we see what he is doing and why, it becomes harder to feel for his victims and left me with mixed emotions about the killer.

Rain Will Come has a good, steady pace but you need to have a strong stomach because the crimes committed are pretty gruesome. I was intrigued with the story because I was never sure that Paul was going to get his man. The twists and turns and the story’s conclusion were all so good. Four stars from me.

Thomas Holgate has written feature films, television movies and series, nonfiction books, and countless magazine pieces published under a different name. Rain Will Come is his first novel.
