    The horror that is rape here in America is not an easy subject to broach in a mystery novel. Getting the depth of feelings women experience while continuing a story-thread even harder, especially for a male author. "Medusa" has attempted both admirably. Caitlin HcHugh is a rare woman Lt. in a decidedly male police dept. who is assigned a very gruesome but public case where men are being murdered, then displayed as examples of revenge by an assailant known only as "Medusa". As the victims accumulate and the town struggles to understand the message, MCHugh races to put an end to the murders that only her sense of justice accepts as wrong.My only complaint with this book is that the author tends to develop way too many characters at once, not allowing those who should be the main event shine. A reader's attention would be held much more raptly if we were allowed to concentrate on two main characters and maybe two beta characters, none of the others needed such long background stories - while interesting, it just muddied the water and took away from the purpose. If one can wade through the plethora, however, the mystery/suspense aspect is worth the swim!Merged review:The horror that is rape here in America is not an easy subject to broach in a mystery novel.

    The story was gripping from beginning to end! I found myself reading late into the night, unable to put it down. MacCallum's grasp of the English language, as well as his ability to give us a glimpse into the darker side of humanity made for a breath-taking ride! If you thought Cipher was thrilling, then you MUST read Medusa! Guaranteed to knock your socks off!!

    A gripping crime tale, that hooks the reader from the get go and proceeds with original twists to make it stand out from the rest of the books in that genre
