    Four friends, recent college graduates, caught in a terrible job market, joke about turning to kidnapping to survive. And then, suddenly, it's no joke. For two years, the strategy they devise - quick, efficient, low risk - works like a charm. Until they kidnap the wrong man. Now two groups they've very much wanted to avoid are after them - the law, in the form of veteran state investigator Kirk Stevens and hotshot young FBI agent Carla Windermere, and an organized-crime outfit looking for payback.

    Pretty Good Start of a new series

    I think this one falls somewhere in the middle. I've listened to much worse (The Lock Artist) and too many better to name. I do think this was good, i..Show More »

    From the outside, Carter Tomlin's life looked perfect: a big house, pretty wife, two kids - a St. Paul success story. But Tomlin has a secret. He's lost his job, the bills are mounting, and that perfect life is hanging by a thread. Desperate, he robs a bank. Then he robs another. As the red flags start to go up, FBI Special Agent Carla Windermere homes in on Tomlin from one direction, while Minnesota state investigator Kirk Stevens picks up the trail from another.

    Very entertaining

    The plot is reminiscent of, well, the author's first novel: a normal sort of person is lured into a life of crime almost by chance and gets more and m..Show More »

    On a beautiful Saturday in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota, state investigator Kirk Stevens and his occasional colleague FBI special agent Carla Windermere witness the assassination of one of the state’s wealthiest men. The shooter is a young man, utterly unremarkable - except in his eyes. There is something very wrong in his eyes.

    Great, though not as good as the first two

    I'm really enjoying this series. It has just enough twists to keep it interesting and make it different and surprising compared to other cop series...Show More »

The shooter is a young man, utterly unremarkable...except for the dead look in his eyes. The events of that sunny springtime day will lead Stevens and Windermere to a flourishing 21st-century enterprise: a high-tech murder-for-hire social media website.

    When you've got nothing left, you've got nothing left to lose. Cass County, Minnesota: A sheriff's deputy steps out of a diner on a rainy summer evening, and a few minutes later, he's lying dead in the mud. When BCA agent Kirk Stevens arrives on the scene, he discovers local authorities have taken into custody a single suspect: a hysterical young woman found sitting by the body, holding the deputy's own gun. She has no ID, speaks no English. A mystery woman.

    Excellent! Owen Continues to Impress

    After reading Laukkanen's first 3 books I decided to try this one as an audio book. The story was riveting and I couldn't wait to get back in the car ..Show More »

    Kirk Stevens and Carla Windermere of the joint BCA-FBI violent crime task force have handled shocking cases before, but this one is different. Stevens' daughter, Andrea, is distraught over a classmate's suicide, but what the two investigators find is even more disturbing - an online suicide club of unhappy teenagers, presided over by an anonymous presence who seems to be spurring them on. Soon it becomes apparent that the classmate wasn't the first victim.

    I hate it when authors make a story drag.

    The narrator was excellent but the story dragged on and on.
