Publisher's Summary

A serial killer is on the loose in San Diego, and he has a most unusual M.O.: with each kill, he leaves behind objects with unclear meanings. Most of the recent killings are centered near Kendra Michaels' home and office, so it comes as no great surprise when the FBI shows up at her door.

The investigators soon make a startling discovery: the left-behind objects are actually souvenirs of other unsolved serial murder cases in various US cities. And the new cases feature "holdback" characteristics of the other murders unknown to the general public. Kendra realizes that the killer has come to challenge and taunt her.

The investigators become his newest targets, even as Kendra slowly begins to suspect that one of them may be the killer himself. She must find the killer as the body count rises, and to do so she relies on her own "dream team" of agent-for-hire Adam Lynch and private investigator Jessie Mercado. They must risk everything to defeat a psychopath whose terrifying plan is years in the making.

Characters

I know Kendra is the main character, but without Lynch, it wouldn't matter. I love Jesse too. Olivia is good, her mother not so much. So don't have her in the picture much, if at all. Her character is annoying.
Keep Kendra and Lynch together as forever partners, lovers and maybe more. The drama is the main point but love and a savvy duo is exciting and attractive. It will bring me back for every book you write about them. Thanks

Iris Johansen has outdone herself once again!

This one had me on the edge of my chair the entire trip. And I was still surprised by the ending! Awesome book!

Best Yet

This was EXCELLENTLY done. I did not know who the serial killer was until you choose to reveal.

This book was good except for one thing....

I really like the story in this book. Everything concerning the Serial Killer was very good. The narration was excellent but... the one part I had a hard time listening to was the way the main character was portrayed when she was with the man she "liked". It reminded me of those "Harlequin Romance" books I read when I was very much younger. But I did my best to pass over those parts and the rest of the book was very, very good. I thought I could guess who the Killer was..... I was wrong. I like surprise endings.

Another great thriller by the Johansen team

This one kept you on the edge of your seat. I couldn’t figure out who did it in advance. The only thing missing was some romance, the “little thoughts” they had wasn’t enough.

Sound volume awful

The reader whispers all the main character lines and speaks all the other characters loudly. I spent the entire book changing volume levels to hear and not blast my ears at the same time. Her voices would have been good if someone had just balanced the volumes.
