With the help of PI Jessie Cole, he’s getting closer. But few who remember Ben’s troubled childhood want to talk.

This series has been so great. All the characters just grow on you. The suspense and intrigue keep you going until the final page. I personally have enjoyed learning so much about Ben. One minute you think he is a horrible murderer, then the next you are thinking no way. Also Z is one of the most interesting of them all. I love how her mind works. I just laugh at her silliness. I cant get enough of this series.

I enjoyed this book very much. at first it seemed as if there were to many stories going. heartless killer, police detective, the PI , the crime reporter, the shot attorney, the missing mentally ill girl....and so on. How it all comes together is what great authors do. all I can say is bravo & tell the reader to get busy reading they will not be disappointed.

Haley Powell wakes up covered in blood, with no memory of the night before. When she sees a man lying in the backyard, stabbed to death, she has only one terrified thought: What have I done? Agreeing to take the case as a favor to her PI friend Lincoln Sharp, Morgan must scale a mountain of damning circumstantial and forensic evidence to prove her client innocent. Haley couldn’t appear more guilty: her bloodstained fingerprints are on the murder weapon, and she has no alibi. But Morgan can’t shake the feeling that this shocked young woman has been framed.

FBI Special Agent Cate Wilde is back home on a remote Pacific Northwest island when she gets the call: a teenager’s skeletal remains have been found on a nearby island. Together with Tessa Black, a childhood friend turned local deputy, Cate confronts dreary weather and bleak leads to make sense of the death. The complications pile up as Cate is distracted by the coroner on the case - and by nagging memories that draw her two decades into the past. The remains suggest eerie similarities between this victim, and Cate and Tessa’s friend Samantha, who disappeared when she was fourteen.

i enjoy stories about men that were military trained and use that knowledge for the better. i thought Alley was a very interesting character. Her opening up to Grey that first night about her childhood was a nice way for them to bond. Her being calm an thinking to grab that flash drive could possibly help save many more women and children.

Sharpe & Tessa trying to stay away from one another was just crazy. They had major hot chemistry. The mystery and thrill last until the end. This was an emotional read. 4 good friends 1 by 1 killed off by a crazed man wanting them to be his dolls.
