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).

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.

Mixed opinion

The story started out good and had potential. Somewhere along the way it became monotonous and difficult to enjoy. While the narrator was ok, her voice did not seem to suit the main character.

Great!

Finished in less then a day. I loved the pace, and the whole story about Clark. I may have teared up little at the end, but no spoilers!

Too sappy

Wallows in emotion. I hated it. The main character is weak and the idea that she would be coddled as an FBI agent absurd.

I did not enjoy the swearing or the graphic description of sexual abuse. I know that this kind of abuse exists in the world .

The overall story was interesting but I found the detail description of the abuse upsetting. . When I am reading for pleasure, I do not like to read about such awful events. I prefer to read about the good in the world.
