Publisher's Summary

He started the game. She’ll end it.

FBI special agent Clarke Sinclair doesn’t give up easily. She’s spent years tracking serial killer Simon Cross, forced to follow his twisted clues and photographs across the country. Clarke knows that Cross selects only redheaded women and that he doesn’t target another victim until Clarke discovers the previous one.

He’s never broken pattern...until now.

A girl has already gone missing in upstate New York when a second one is kidnapped - a blonde. The killer’s MO has changed, sending Clarke back to the drawing board. The closer she gets to the truth, the deeper she’s drawn into an inescapable trap made just for Clarke. Whatever Cross’s ultimate game is, it ends with her.

Weak serial killer vs. FBI novel

It may just be my issue, but I did not like Lauren Ezzo's dramatic monotone narrating style. As for the novel, there were no likable characters; nor were there characters that behaved in a rational manner. The location and time changed constantly without warning or notification (likely a narrator issue).

Lifetime movie of the week + damaged cop tropes

While it was a page turner and an easy read, the story was dramatically overwrought. If damaged cops, self doubting women, and perfect villains are your thing, you’ll love this book.

Weak

There are several issues with this story, primary among them is the incredibly unstable personality of the female FBI agent. I almost quit listening and would have if I weren’t busy with a project and needed a story to listen to while my hands were busy creating.
The FBI would never recruit someone as mentally and emotionally unstable as this character is portrayed.
Additionally, the narrator doesn’t insert pauses or give any indication when the story is switching time frames. Makes for some confusing listening in a few spots, until you realize the story has flashed back a decade or two. I’m certain on paper there are page breaks. Well, there needs to be narration breaks too.
Finally, it’s a bit annoying to listen to a story that was probably released months earlier than anticipated. It’s May 2018. The dates in the story, written in past tense, refer mostly to July 2018. Minor annoyance.
I picked this up using Kindle Unlimited read and listen for free program. For free it’s just ok. Glad I didn’t pay for it.

It was a pretty good book...

I almost just quit this book but the story was good enough to keep going. The narrator’s voice grated on me the whole time. I will make a note of her name and never ever get another book that she reads. Her voice sounded like she was near tears and so dang dramatic the whole time. Ugh!! She couldn’t seem to read the non-speaking parts without that whiney voice of hers. Even recalling it makes me cringe. Be sure to listen closely when you sample the audio book and decide if you can listen to that for hours.

My Musings

This one has a slow start, and I almost stopped listening at one point. I’m so glad I didn’t. Good suspense and lots of twists, but well worth the wait. Happy reading/listening!

Boring

Just plain dull and boring, gave it up half way through the book. Could not get invested in any of the characters, just a waste of my time. At least it was a read and listen for free.

Interesting

Keeps you engaged. Questioning every little bit of information the author gives you. Mysterious. Creepy. Very intense FBI case. I really liked the ending. Some of this is disturbing.

Could not stop listening

Little confusing at first. With the different characters each chapter. I carried on and enjoyed the book very much. Highly recommend this one!
