Homicide detective Jerry Riggs is running out of time. He’s got less than three weeks to solve a homicide that hasn’t even happened yet and every lead has led to a dead end–literally. The only witnesses he has are the young female victim’s three multiple personalities and they can’t stop bickering with each other long enough to be of much help to him.

What does a good cop do when he’s got nothing to go on? He relies his training, years of experience, gut instinct…and then he hopes he’ll get lucky. Ride along with Riggs and his partner Bob LaMoria when they finally catch a break that enables them to bust the high priest of a satanic cult and save the girl from becoming the next human sacrifice.

Frank Atchley draws upon his vast experience as a homicide detective and his investigation skills, finely honed while serving on the Green River (Washington) Task Force that brought Gary Ridgeway to justice in the serial murder cases. A Birthday to Die For is Atchley’s debut novel.

I read mostly nonfiction, but a friend told me about this book and talked me into reading it. I admit I was hooked from the first sentence. The author did a good job of building the story step-by-step, the satanic cult was a good angle, and the story never goes off point with details that don’t relate. It seemed like just when Riggs and his partner were about to solve the case, something happened to throw a wrench in the works, which kept pulling me through the story. I had a hard time putting this book down because I couldn’t wait to get to the end.

The author developed a story line that is extremely detailed and accurate, but at the same time a very interesting read. Chapter after chapter leads the reader to explore the complexities of the human, scientific and investigative aspects of this intriguing criminal investigation. Even those readers with extensive investigative background will find this book a learning experience and interesting case study of a unique genre of criminal investigation.

Frank Atchely’s A Birthday to Die For is fast paced and spellbinding. The “bad guys” are revealed layer by layer keeping the reader is suspense. The victim’s multiple personalities make you wonder who and when the real victim will come forth. Frank’s background in police work lends credibility to this story.
