3.0 out of 5 starsI'm glad I did
Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2014
The book itself was really fast paced once it got passed 'rehashing' every case Jessica and Richard ever had; the who, what, when, and where and how they caught, killed, or arrested the perps slowed down the start of the book for me. I really thought about stopping it, but I have the mind==it's hard not to at least give it 50-100 pages. I'm glad I did, however, the sloppy editing of the kindle version got to be annoying as well. Name mistakes, quotes left off or put on in wrong places, misspelled words, words left out...I could go on, but then I'd be as annoying as all of these were to me. Sorry, fans I just can't really enjoy a book with poor editing, etc., hence the 3 stars. Loved all the other books which I read in paperbacks years ago.
5.0 out of 5 starsRIVALS THE BEST IN THRILLERS AND MURDER MYSTERIES

The Edge of Instinct by Robert W. Walker, is one of the finest in his Instinct series. This reader was both heartbroken for Dr. Jessica Coran at the loss she faced after finally finding happiness and happy to be able to once again read a tale that frightened, thrilled, and otherwise held my attention to the very end.
I could not put this book down and as with each of Mr. Walker's books I was not disappointed. It was also a pleasure to make the re-acquaintance of Lt. Lucas Stonecoat, for I missed the character.
There is a brilliance in Mr. Walker's writing that reviles James Rollins in that one can always count on it being fast paced and continue to not just hold your attention, but draw you into the world he paints and keep you awake at night.
I'm a big fan of the Instinct and Edge series, and I wanted to reread Edge of Instinct because both Dr. Jessica Coran and Lucas Stonecoat are in this... combining the protagonists from both series made this book especially fun to read, and was just as enjoyable the second time around.
Jessica and Lucas are after a vicious serial killer, and there are many twists and turns, keeping the reader on the edge of their seat.
2.0 out of 5 starsNot the best book in the series.

I found it interesting that this book is actually part of 2 series, Edge series (#5) and Instinct series (#12). If you have come this far in either series and enjoyed them thus far, I say go ahead and read this one, but don't expect to much from this volume. The story itself (for the most part) was entertaining and (for the most part) kept my attention. There are however, several factual errors and things that just do not make sense. Some examples: (a) Houston does not (or ever did have) a population of anywhere near 6.22 million people. I was happy to see that this error was corrected in the 6th volume of the "Edge" series. (b) The eagle does not "fly higher than any other animal on earth". The highest flying animal (other than us humans) is actually a type of vulture. Although an eagle does fly high, there are many other birds that can fly higher than an eagle. (c) I was also confused as to why 2 parents were fighting over "full custody" of a nineteen year-old. (d) A character was "bleeding and moaning" (after being shot) and then later described as taking a bullet to the right temple and dying instantly. I believe the author would benefit by a little more fact checking and more careful editing.
