It begins with a chilling phone call to Casey Woods. And ends with another girl dead.
College-age girls with long red hair. Brutally murdered, they're posed like victims in a film noir. Each crime scene is eerily similar to the twisted fantasy of a serial offender now serving thirty years to life - a criminal brought to justice with the help of Forensic Instincts.
Call. Kill. Repeat. But the similarities are more than one psychopath's desire to outdo another. As more red haired victims are added to the body count, it becomes clear that each one has been chosen because of a unique connection to Casey - a connection that grows closer and closer to her.
Now the Forensic Instincts team must race to uncover the identity of a serial killer before his ever tightening circle of death closes in on Casey as the ultimate target. As the stalker methodically moves in on his prey, his actions make one thing clear: he knows everything about Casey. And Casey realizes that this psychopath won't stop until he makes sure she's dead.

Okay...I'll try my best to avoid spoilers...but it will definitely be hard.
I'm a fan of Andrea Kane and the F.I. series..however...THIS book...took ridiculous too far.
Don't get me wrong...the storyline was pretty good, had some interesting twists and developed at a good pace. Now, for the issues...this book made F.I. seem SO incompetent...I wouldn't hire them to find my lost keys.
You find out a key person...may be more involved in the crimes than originally thought...and yet...no questions are raised when you visit alone.
You sense personal danger...and yet...WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
You have a freakin' vision of what's to come and you don't understand it...
The killer knows where your team lives and yet you don't think they'd become a target.
The list could go on and on and on...
By the time this book got to where you know it was going...I was hoping the victims would simply be killed for sheer stupidity. Sorry, Andrea Kane...this book almost kills my love for team Forensic Instincts...their instincts in this particular book were about as useful as a 100 year old corpse. It was as if the team caught a case of the stupids...what a way to ruin a perfectly good storyline. There is a line between "missing" a clue...and being clueless.
I'm also a bit love/hate on Angela Dawe...she does a superb job with the voices of the characters at least distinguishing male/female...however her voice in the general narration drives me bonkers.
So in short...
Narration - 3 stars
Plot - 4 stars
F. I. - 2 star
This being the third book in the series, why did you switch narrators? The original narrator, a male. This one, a female, was hard to listen to. She enunciates at the end of each word.
The interaction of the characters.
Her enunciation of the last word in each sentence. IT started to get on my nerves.
What a mistake purchase. I didn't get through 10 minutes of narration and thought I was listening to my navigation lady voice. I was so put off my voice and lack of inflection and proper exclamations, I thought Angela (narrator) was going to tell me take the nearest UTurn....
Sorry, I no rating for story...
