I read a lot of novels, but havenít come across a character quite like the heroine of Senseless before. She has spent the last ten years in prison for murder, is very afraid of cops, extremely private, and trying to live her life without anyone getting close to her.

Unfortunately, it seems as if Eva Rayburnís past is catching up with her. When a womanís body is found after a fire in a homeless shelter, it starts a chain of events that link that long-ago murder with a new series of killings. Detective Deacon Garrison, assigned to the case, begins to think that Eva might know more about it than she originally thinks, but her fear of the police makes it difficult for her to trust him.

Senseless features a wide cast of characters and I liked that, although it's a bit strange how they all seem to be linked in some way. I wasnít convinced about the character King and his motivations, but he isnít that significant a part of the book. Otherwise, I really enjoyed this story, which has enough twists to keep it interesting but whose strong central characters carry the story.
