I gratefully received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review.
It's a race to try to keep one step ahead of the serial killer, but obstacles seem to keep getting in the way. The author is well versed in police proceedings and makes the story very believable. The characters work well together and I liked how they slowly began to trust each other as the story continued. It's nice to read a story with strong characters, scenes that are riveting and details that are precise.
This is another power packed adventure from an author that always delivers the best in suspense. I could not put this book down from the moment I read the first page. It grabs you from the beginning and brings you to a heart pounding ending that you won't soon forget.
