Selina Rosen,
Strange Robby
(Meisha Merlin, 2006)

A serial killer is on the loose, except he is only killing criminals. Frustrated by the system and its tendency to not punish the guilty, police detectives Spider Webb and Tommy Chan are reluctant to solve the case; after all, the "Fry Guy" is cleaning up the streets. But when black-suited agents start sniffing around the case, everything gets a lot more complicated as hints of dark secrets enter the scene.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are full of life, they're multifaceted and they deal with several complex issues and circumstances along the way. I also loved how the seemingly simple matter of a serial killer kept enlarging into bigger and bigger things. Fast paced and exciting, this novel also explores relationships and different aspects of a life, one's goals and how things don't always work like we think they should.

If that's not enough, there's blackmail, love, trust, secret organizations, psychic powers, politics and more!
