Police Sergeant Lou Boldt heads a special task force within Seattle's Homicide bureau. His job: find and stop the Cross Killer, a twisted, perverse serial murderer who has eluded police for six months and paralyzed the city. But when a body washes up on the shore of Puget Sound, Boldt thinks the killer has finally made a mistake.
This body shows some of the work of the Cross Killer—but a job badly botched. Did this woman die while trying to escape? Did she knowingly jump in the water to preserve a clue? And is she now desperately trying to tell Boldt something? With the help of the alluring Daphne Matthews, a police psychologist, Boldt pieces together the complex puzzle—and the reader is taken along on a journey into the mind of a killer, and into the day-by-day nuts and bolts of police work, that is among the best in modern crime fiction. For readers of Caunitz, Wambaugh, and Sanders, Undercurrents is a roller-coaster ride in the dark that will intrigue, startle, and satisfy.

Why do I continue to read books that are not that great? This book is readable if there is nothing else available.

A well-written and entertaining story that just went on and on with too many anti-climactic moments.  I've read Ridley Pearson's Lou Boldt books but not in order.  If I had read this one first, I might not have grabbed a second won.

I first read this book in junior high, and now, 15 years later, I re-read it and it is just as exciting! Maybe I have an affinity for his books because they are set in my hometown of Seattle, but they are also very well written and you don't know the outcome until the last paragraph!!

This is the first book of Ridley Pearson's that I've read and it was very enjoyable. I will definitely read more of his.

This is one of the best mystery novels I have ever read, and the only one I've read 3 times.
