A Pinoy detective novel

“Some days I just can’t seem to focus. It’s hard to concentrate on what’s going on around me, on what I’m doing.”

It’s been getting worse lately. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed from the moment I wake up in the morning, as though something bad is going to happen. I can’t breathe right, my hands and feet are cold. My head hurts.

I feel like everything I do from sunup to sundown is just to keep this bad thing from happening. And everyday I have to do more and more. It is exhausting. Nothing that I do is ever enough.

I feel like I’m always being watched.

I hate being watched.”

This is a good read, a well-written, fast-paced detective novel. This brings to mind Jonathan Kellerman and his Alex Delaware novels, and my fascination for psychological thrillers.
