Se7en meets The Silence of the Lambs in this dark and twisting novel from the author Jeffery Deaver called "a talented writer with a delightfully devious mind". For over five years, the Four Monkey Killer has terrorized the residents of Chicago. When his body is found, the police quickly realize he was on his way to deliver one final message, one that proves he has taken another victim, who may still be alive.

very likeable characters liked the setting but the angst was too much for me. it needed balance with more humor. one quirky character like the zebra needed more screen time.

I wanted to love this book but didn't. I like an even spacing for action and a tight plot. this had neither except at the end. I could not connect with the heroine. she got better but not much. Justine the narrator does a good job.

This is an absolute gem of a story. Heath Champion and Annabelle Granger are such a fascinating and interesting couple. This book has it all sexy men and women interesting careers and great locations. The secondary couple of Portia and Body are the perfect foil. Pippy Tucker is adorable. This is my all time favorite narration by Anna Fields. She gives it the perfect tone. And the humor sparkles from every page. I April take this book on a desert island.

This book is a great addition to the series. I could not wait to find out all about Daisy and Ryke. We get a birsdseye view of the ensemble as well as the stars. I think their writing is fearless. I love the issues tackled and overcome. I recommended this series to my daughter and she loves it. I love Ryke's "blue" language. Don't know any other book where a character was so foul-mouthed and entirely lovable anyway. Bravo KB Ritchie.
