But was the letter really sent by Mechanic?
Not knowing where to turn, with his marriage in turmoil and his career on the rocks, Lucas begins to spiral out of control and when Mechanic meets the head of a drug smuggling cartel the situation takes a grave turn

Is there a link between the murders and Mechanic?
Can Lucas apprehend the killer this time or will Mechanic remain one step ahead?
In Your Name is the second instalment in The Mechanic Trilogy. The other instalments in the series are:
Mechanic #1 Those That Remain (my review)
Mechanic #3 Pay The Penance – to be published on August 8th, 2017 by Bloodhound Books.
I would recommend reading these books in order so as to fully understand the intricacies of the violent entanglements.
The series features Florida State Police Lieutenant Lucas who, after investigating what looks like an ordinary home invasion, stumbles upon the slaughtered bodies of a family, leaving the mother heavily injured. This modus operandi triggers recollections of a serial killer, believed dead: Mechanic. Soon, Lucas is in over his head – and he needs the information of his predecessor Harper as well as the assistance of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit in the person of Jo Sells.
The catastrophic events of Those That Remain leave Lucas shattered and broken – driven by only one emotion: revenge! When he receives a cryptical message and no one believes him, he takes matters into his own hands, jeopardising everything: his career, his marriage, his life …

He worked in a variety of consulting jobs until he finally decided to ‘listen to the voices in his head’ and start his writing career. The story of ‘Mechanic’ is a book that somehow was stuck in his head for almost twenty-five years; when, due to personal circumstances, Rob had to take three months leave to care for his parents, writing down the story in his head became his way of coping. The result of four years of writing: the birth of ‘The Mechanic Trilogy’ a thrilling crime series.
