Forensics Nurse Examiner, Jewel Connor, isn’t satisfied with waiting for Lt. Graham (her team member with an attitude) to follow leads and clues when the next crime victim turns out to be her friend, Sara, the DA. As Jewel investigates, it stirs a long-buried memory that urges her on to fight for these women that have been battered and sliced by a serial killer. She stays right on his trail, but soon finds out he is also following her and waiting for her.
As to who the killer is – well, there are several characters that seem to have motive and ability to carry out these attacks. I found my heart racing at some of the twists and turns this mystery takes. Jewel’s husband helps her by using contacts from his mysterious past and his technical expertise on the computer. Both of them realize her life is in extreme danger, but she is compelled to follow through to the conclusion.
I give this a 4/5 and recommend it to those who enjoy a good thriller. It kept me guessing, which is what I look for and the reason I would consider reading more by these authors. This is a well-written, fast-paced mystery that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat (or bed in my case, as I read this in two nights in bed!) I couldn’t put it down.
I received this book free from the author for the purpose of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
