A reincarnated evil is stalking the women of Houston. With each murder, the madman quotes an excerpt from the Oscar Wilde poem, "The Ballad of Reading Gaol." A huge smokestack belching smoke, a ragged flea market double-breasted wool coat, and an old antique picture frame, bring the distant past back to haunt Houston Homicide Detective, Sean Jamison. With those catalysts, Jamison knows who he was in a past life and that he lost the only woman he could ever love. Searching for his reincarnated mate becomes Jamison's raison d'être as he and fellow detectives scour Houston for a brutal serial killer. The memory of timeless love drives Jamison's dogged search for a serial killer, determined to finish what he started decades earlier.Each clue brings Jamison closer to unmasking his old nemesis. Tenacious police work, lessons learned in the past, and intuition may be the only weapons he has in preventing history from repeating itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just didn't come together as a cohesive story This book had a wonderful premise I just found that the excitation of it wasn't as smooth and professional as I'd like it to be. The premise was that love will find a way even through death. Our main character was murdered in the concentration camps and so was his beloved wife. Many years later he is reincarnated as a homicide detective who starts having headaches and visions of who he used to be. He sets out to find out where is wife is (and who she has been reincarnated as) and to also find the reincarnated killer of his former self and wife. The major problem I found was there was no device to explain why our main character would be remembering his former life or his former wife. There was no proverbial bump on the head or irradiated spider bite like in Spiderman. Our middle-aged detective just "starts" remembering for no reason. Why now? Why at all? Just because the character believes in reincarnation, being a good person, eating healthy and all that good stuff is no reason WHY he'd suddenly start remembering. Sometimes a truly excellent author with extraordinary skills can get away with not explaining "why" something strange is happening but for that to work, said author has to catch the reader in a death grip of "need to know" where that reader would rather starve than put the book down. That was certainly not the case here. I had real trouble caring about this main character and all the superfluous writing to fill out the book didn't help. Although the writer has decent writing skills, this book just didn't work for me.
