A Maxim Jakubowski Great Male Crime Sleuth.

Oregon cop Sheridan has spent three novels fighting it out with uber-female serial killer Gretchen Lowell, but his fourth outing sees her behind bars and Archie and accidental sidekick journalist Susan Ward investigating a sinister case of murders by poisonous squid (!) while the city of Portland is being flooded. Cain does horror within a crime context better than anyone, and the results are both gripping and unsettling. Breathless and unputdownable and Sheridan's complex personality is revealed layer by layer.

If you like Chelsea Cain you might also like to read books by Tess Gerritsen, Tania Carver and Alafair Burke.
